Earlier this week, LSU announced that there would be COVID-19 protocols to enter Tiger Stadium for home games this season. Game attendees must provide either proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within three days of the game.
The athletic department announced more information in regards to attending games. There will be a vaccination even on Thursday, Sept. 2 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center from 4 to 8 pm. This is according to the release on Friday.
LSU Athletics and Our Lady of the Lake will also provide gameday vaccinations on Saturday, September 11 before the Tigers’ home opener against McNeese State. Details on gameday vaccinations will be released to the public when finalized.
Limited COVID-19 PCR testing will be available on gameday for fans who preregister. The link for preregistration for gameday testing will be available at noon on Wednesday, September 1 at LSUSports.net and distributed across LSU Athletics’ platforms.
Gameday testing will cost $35 and run from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. on September 11 at the PMAC.
The school also announced that tailgating is set to return for the first time since the 2019 season under no COVID-19 restrictions. They do encourage physical distancing, masking, and sanitizing. This is huge for the fans, especially considering LSU is one of the top tailgating events in the country.
ESPN recently named it on their ultimate road trip for the Auburn-LSU game:
Start with a drive through campus and stop off to visit Mike the Tiger at his enclosure. I mean, how often do you get to see a live tiger mascot just feet from a football stadium? It’s worth the pit stop. From there, grab some Louisiana style pizza at Fleur de Lis. Oh, you didn’t know Louisiana pizza was a thing? It’s cheesy and rectangular and glorious. For seafood, it’s hard to go wrong, whether it’s a po-boy at Parrain’s or oysters at Drago’s. But don’t fill up at breakfast on game day because the tailgating on campus starts early and will sustain you all the way up until kickoff, whether it’s savory gumbo, smoked sausage or even alligator. Don’t be afraid to wander around and make friends because hospitality in Baton Rouge means feeding everyone under the tent. – Alex Scarborough, ESPN
