Policy: Public address announcements are restricted to emergency situations only and must be requested through LSU Police at (225) 578-3231 or during games at (225) 578-4357.
Reason: Many announcements are requested, but only emergency situations can be addressed through PA announcements in Tiger Stadium. To properly address these situations, LSU Police is responsible for determining the level of importance of any requested announcement.
Policy: Southeastern Conference rules do not permit artificial noise-makers to be brought into or used in Tiger Stadium. Anyone found violating this policy is subject to ejection.
Reason: The SEC implemented this rule in order to prevent the distraction of the participants and officials in the game.
Backpacks and Bags
Policy: Backpacks are not allowed in Tiger Stadium. Bags larger than 8½" x 11" are not allowed in Tiger Stadium.
Reason: LSU is following the advice of security officials who have designated backpacks and large bags as a security risk. Also, the searching of backpacks would contribute to longer lines for security checks at gates. Thank you for your cooperation with this very important policy.
Recommendation: LSU recommends the use of clear bags smaller than 8½" by 11" (per person) for carrying items into Tiger Stadium.
Banners and Poles
Policy: Banners may not be hung and poles may not be brought into Tiger Stadium except as approved by LSU.
Reason: Banners or poles in Tiger Stadium can obstruct the view of other fans. Also, LSU must ensure that it abides by its contractual agreements with corporate sponsors regarding signage in Tiger Stadium.
Beverage Policy (Alcohol)
Policy: The possession or consumption of alcohol in the general seating areas of Tiger Stadium is expressly prohibited by University policy. Stadium personnel and law enforcement officials will enforce this policy.
Reason: In an effort to encourage an enjoyable experience for all fans in Tiger Stadium, persons who are intoxicated or who are in possession of alcohol will be ejected from the stadium.
Policy: Cameras are permitted in Tiger Stadium for both fans and working news media. All photos taken in Tiger Stadium must be for editorial or personal use only and may not be used for advertising, promotions or other trade purposes, or any other commercial or promotional endeavor, without the permission of LSU. Contact the LSU Office of Finance and Administrative Services at (225) 578-3386 with any questions.
Reason: The sale of images with current student-athletes is against NCAA rules and can risk the eligibility of LSU student-athletes. Additionally, any commercial use of photos of Tiger Stadium, campus landmarks or identifiable campus elements is prohibited without the prior written approval of the University.
Re-Entry to Stadium
Policy: Anyone leaving the stadium must have a full ticket to return to the stadium. Once a ticket has been scanned or the stub removed, it may not be used again for re-entry, unless otherwise directed by LSU officials in emergency situations.
Reason: SEC rules prohibit "pass out checks" from being issued.
Policy: Smoking is not permitted in all areas of Tiger Stadium. (Established by Louisiana Law 2007)
Reason: The "Louisiana Smoke Free Air Act" became law in the State of Louisiana on January 1, 2007. The statute La. R.S. 40:1300.252 specifically prohibits smoking in any public building, defined as a building owned or operated by the state or any other political subdivision of the state. All of LSU's athletic facilities are considered public buildings under this statute. Additionally, a public place also covers sports arenas, educational facilities and any enclosed areas to which the public is invited.
Policy: The throwing of objects from the stands is strictly prohibited and is cause for immediate ejection. Also, fans may not go onto the playing field at anytime before, during or after games.
Reason: Thrown objects can cause serious injury. LSU takes very seriously the safety of fans, coaches, athletes and officials. LSU will act promptly and accordingly if the safety of any individual is in jeopardy.
Standing During Games
Policy: LSU encourages fans to be courteous of other fans in choosing to stand during games. Spontaneous reaction to plays or significant events is expected and encouraged. Continued standing during game action when other fans are sitting is discouraged and will be addressed by game marshals if complaints from other fans are reasonable and continuous.
Reason: Common courtesy dictates that fans should not block the view of other fans who are seated during game action.
Policy: Visitors to Tiger Stadium may be subject to search.
Reason: With heightened security now a way of life, LSU will do everything possible to provide a secure environment for its fans. Please be cooperative with our security officials during your visit to Tiger Stadium. They are there for your safety.
Recommendation: LSU encourages fans to arrive early and to bring as few personal items into the stadium as possible.
Stadium Seats (Portable)
Policy: Any seat that impedes on the comfort and enjoyment of a fan in an adjacent seat (in front, behind or to the side) is prohibited. (Revised: 2007 season)
Reason: Wide stadium seats can overlap into the seat of the fan next to you.
Recommendation: Any stadium seat measuring 16 inches wide or less will fit into any seat in Tiger Stadium. In some portions of Tiger Stadium, seats wider than 16 inches may fit. Please be considerate of those sitting around you. Please be aware that some seats with LSU logos on them are sold that are larger than 16" because some fans use these seats for purposes other than LSU football games.
Policy: All LSU home games are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Central Time, however the starting times for all games are subject to change. Television rights as negotiated by the Southeastern Conference often dictate a change of starting time for a game. For further information, please visit the Official Web Site of LSU Athletics at www.LSUsports.net/football or check your local news media.
Reason: Night games are a tradition at Tiger Stadium, and LSU will play games at night when possible. However, as a member of the SEC, LSU is obligated to cooperate with the league office in moving start times for television.
Recommendation: Watch your local media or check www.LSUsports.net/football for the most up-to-date starting times for LSU football games.
Policy: All persons, regardless of age, must present a ticket for admission to Tiger Stadium.
Reason: This policy is for the convenience and safety of all Tiger ticket holders. Even the smallest of LSU fans sitting on their parents' lap can be an inconvenience to the fan sitting in the next seat and a safety risk for the child.
Policy: Umbrellas are not allowed in Tiger Stadium.
Reason: Umbrellas are a sight obstruction for other fans, and can be a safety hazard.
Recommendation: LSU advises the use of ponchos or other wearable rain gear for inclement weather.
Policy: Video cameras are not permitted in Tiger Stadium except for the working news media. Video images taken in Tiger Stadium must be for personal use only and may not be used for advertising, promotions or other trade purposes, or any other commercial or promotional endeavor, without the permission of LSU. Contact the LSU Office of Finance and Administrative Services at (225) 578-3386 with any questions.
Reason: LSU is obligated to protect the television and digital rights granted by the Southeastern Conference to television networks and other media. By prohibiting video cameras except for use by credentialed working media, LSU can best manage that obligation.
For the comfort, enjoyment and safety of all Tiger fans, please follow these guidelines for items brought into Tiger Stadium:
- Backpacks, coolers and containers of any kind are prohibited.
- Bags larger than 8 ½" x 11" are not permitted for security reasons.
- Food and drinks may not be brought into Tiger Stadium.

Please Stay Off Of The Field!
The Southeastern Conference takes seriously the issue of fans "storming the field" after major victories. While the enthusiasm of the fans is admirable, it has caused serious injury to some fans and athletes and can result in unwarranted violence and vandalism.
The SEC has adopted the following principles regarding fan access to competition areas:
- In all sports, access to the competition area shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly-credentialed individuals at all times.
- For the safety of participants and spectators alike, at no time before, during or after a contest shall spectators be permitted to enter the competition area.
Penalties against individuals who improperly enter the competition area shall include, but not be limited to, expulsion from the facility, arrest for trespassing, and the loss of future ticket privileges. In addition to these three penalties, violators who are students shall be subject to student disciplinary measures.
Penalties for Institutional Violations
In the sports of football, men's basketball and women's basketball, at the discretion of the Commissioner, schools in the Southeastern Conference may be fined the following amounts if fans at their respective institutions enter the area of competition before, during or after an athletic contest:
1st offense: institutional fine of $5,000
2nd offense: institutional fine of up to $25,000
3rd offense: institutional fine of up to $50,000
Thank you for your cooperation.
