BATON ROUGE - Beginning with the 2010 LSU football season, the assignment of all new season tickets and new parking permits made available to the public and upgrade requests in all sports will be based solely on lifetime philanthropic giving to the University through the LSU Priority Point System, LSU has announced.
In the past, contributions associated with tickets were included in the calculation of Priority Points for new season tickets, parking permits and upgrades. With the new policy, only those donations not associated with tickets and parking, such as donations toward construction projects and scholarships, will figure in the distribution of new tickets and parking.
Also, in the event that the demand for new season tickets exceeds the supply, no more than four season tickets will be assigned per new account annually.
This new system will be used effective with the March 31, 2010, Priority Point deadline.
This modification to the Priority Point System will have no effect on existing ticket assignments and parking locations. Also, the method for distribution of away game and post-season tickets will not change. Contributions associated with tickets, such as Tradition Fund payments, will still count toward the point system for away game and post-season tickets.
The LSU Priority Point System is a system developed for the distribution and allocation of tickets and parking passes based on lifetime giving to LSU. The Tiger Athletic Foundation is tasked with maintaining the Priority Point System for LSU.
