Tickets for LSU's season opener have high asking prices on secondary market


It’s safe to say LSU’s 2020 season opener against the Mississippi State Bulldogs is a hot ticket.

According to TicketIQ, a secondary market for tickets, the average listing for a seat in Tiger Stadium for the opener is more than three times the price of last season’s opener. The average ticket price for Saturday’s matchup is $243 compared to $70 in 2019’s opener vs. Georgia Southern.

Tiger Stadium will host roughly 25,000 fans this weekend, 25 percent of the stadium’s capacity, and those spectators will have to adhere to strict guidelines.
Fans will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening via their smart phones prior to arriving on campus.

The screening can be done via the LSU Sports Mobile app will be available starting at 12 a.m. C.T. Saturday morning. The CDC Facilities COVID-19 screening requires fans 18 or older to answer four questions.

“Once the questions are answered, fans will either receive an approved pass, which will be displayed in GREEN on the mobile screen “Access to CDC Facilities Approved” or a denied notification “Access to CDC Facilities Not Approved” which will be displayed in RED. Those fans with an approved notification will have access to Tiger Stadium, while those with a denied notification will not be admitted to the stadium,” the athletic department announced.

LSU guest services kiosks will be available outside Gate 9, Gate 20, or the southwest corner of Tiger Stadium near Gate 1 to assist ticket holders having difficulty accessing the app.

LSU is also reminding ticket holders add tickets and parking passes to their mobile wallets, face masks covering the nose and mouth are required on campus and that all concession stands are cashless.
