Tiger Stadium Brings Alcohol Sales Back For Next LSU Football Game
Alcohol sales were banned from LSU's Tiger Stadium as part of the COVID-19 precautions for the Tigers' first home game against Mississippi State. The thought at the time was that alcohol would remain prohibited during the whole LSU season. But that's not changing.
Today, LSU announced that alcohol sales will return to Tiger Stadium for this weekend's game with Missouri.
Here are some of the details sent out by LSU:
- Alcohol sales will be permitted in general and premium areas of Tiger Stadium for fans 21 years of age and older.
• Fans purchasing alcohol must be wearing a face mask covering the nose and mouth.
• Fans must consume alcohol in their seats. Standing consumption will not be permitted.
• The service of alcoholic beverages will cease at the earlier of the end of the third quarter or 11 p.m.
• The majority of beer and wine will be sold in portable locations around the perimeter of the stadium on the west, north and east sides and in limited stands in the south lower portion of Tiger Stadium.
• For the 2020 season, the conference requirement for pouring alcoholic beverages into a cup has been suspended.
• LSU fans are reminded to review LSU Athletics alcohol policies.
Additionally, LSU has announced that the CDC Wellness Checks will no longer be required for those entering Tiger Stadium before games. The plan is to reduce waiting times in lines to keep gatherings limited. LSU is asking fans to "self assess" before attending games.
LSU also announced that they will be opening more concession areas throughout Tiger Stadium, again in an effort to reduce lines and wait times.
Another part of the update from LSU Athletics was about masks. LSU said that many fans removed their masks after they found their seats during the first home game, but LSU wants to remind fans that masks must be worn at all times, even in your seats.
