In preparation for a potential NCAA Baseball Regional/Super Regional to be held at Alex Box Stadium, the LSU Ticket Office will begin accepting ticket requests from LSU students at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 20.
If LSU is awarded a host site (to be announced May 25), the NCAA Baseball Regional would be held at Alex Box Stadium from Friday, May 30, through Monday, June 2. If LSU hosts the Super Regional, games would be played the following weekend with dates to be announced.
NCAA Regional ticket books are $50 apiece and include one ticket to every game of the regional tournament. NCAA Super Regional ticket books are $30 apiece and include one ticket to every game of the super regional tournament. All seats will be reserved bleacher seats. Should demand exceed supply, a lottery will be conducted and reserved bleacher seats will be given out first. Any remaining students who did not win the lottery will be given Standing Room Only books. The deadline to submit your request will be Thursday, May 22 at 5 p.m.
To place your request, or to create and/or join a seating group, please login to your Student Ticket Account.
GROUP SEATING PROCESS
The LSU Ticket Office has implemented a Group Seating Process for those students who would like to be seated next to each other during the baseball NCAA Regional and/or Super Regional. If you would like to sit with other students, please be sure to create and/or join a group BEFORE you place your ticket order, as this will be your only chance to do so. Ticket requests and group creation will begin at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 20.
Please review the step-by-step group seating instructions below.
1. Select a group leader and have them create a group.
Choose a person to act as group leader. The leader will need to login to their student account and click on "Student Ticket Requests" then click on "Student Bowl Requests". The leader will then need to click on Create a Group in the middle of the box. The leader will then enter the group's name, password, and the email address of the students that will be invited to join the group, and then click submit. An email will be automatically sent to the listed students inviting them to join the group.
2. Invite other students to join the group.
Students whose emails were listed in the initial group creation process will automatically receive an email inviting them to join the group, but receiving the email is not a requirement to join the group. Anyone with the correct group name and matching password can join the group, so feel free to invite other students through any means you choose.
3. Join a group.
To join a group, students must login to their student account and click on "Student Bowl Requests". Then click on the Join a Group button in the middle of the page. Students will then enter the appropriate group name and password, and then click on submit.
4. Request tickets and select a group.
Creating and/or joining a group does not constitute placing a ticket request. Students must still login to their online account and go through the ticket ordering process to place a request. To do so, click on either “2014 NCAA Regional” or “2014 NCAA Super Regional”, then put “1” as the Ticket Quantity, select your Seat Group from the drop down menu (or “None” if you choose not to sit with a group), and click “Add to Cart.”
***IF YOU DO NOT SELECT A GROUP FROM THE DROP DOWN MENU DURING THIS STEP IN THE PROCESS, YOU WILL NOT BE REGISTERED TO SIT WITH THAT GROUP, EVEN IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY JOINED THE GROUP IN STEP 3.***
5. Submit payment information and process the request.
Once students have added their order to the online shopping cart, they must continue through the online ordering process until they have submitted their payment and receive a confirmation screen.
Once your order has been successfully submitted, you will receive an email confirming your request. The deadline to place a request is 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 22. You must place an order for BOTH the Regional and Super Regional if you want tickets for both tournaments.
