About LSU Tiger Stadium
Just an hour north of New Orleans on the banks of the Big Easy lies Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Home of Louisana State University, the local campus has the distinction of having one of the biggest NCAA football stadiums you’ll find anywhere: Tiger Stadium. Affectionately called “Death Valley” because of both how loud and boisterous it can be on game day and how absolutely impossible it is to play there as an opposing team, Tiger Stadium has been bringing the pain to visiting college football teams for nearly a hundred years.
The History of Tiger Stadium
First built in 1924, coming in with a paltry capacity of just 12,000. That wouldn’t last long, though, not with the demand LSU had for college football, so Tiger Stadium would continue to be updated and expanded over the decades until it hit its biggest capacity after its 2014 renovation. Today, Tiger Stadium can hold an astounding 102,000 screaming fans – making it the sixth-largest outdoor stadium in the world. It’s also the fifth-largest in all of the NCAA and the third-largest in the entirety of the Southeastern Conference, losing out by a matter of only two or three thousand seats. No wonder opposing teams call it “Death Valley”!
What Makes Tiger Stadium Events So Special?
Tiger Stadium events are electrifying. When you and over 100,000 fans get together, it’s like sitting on a live wire – it’s an experience you’ll never forget. Whether you’re watching the Tigers demolish an opponent or rocking out to your favorite arena act, catching an event at Death Valley will leave you feeling very much alive.
