LSU students now have a way to move up the priority list for tickets in Tiger Stadium this season.

LSU sent students an email Monday saying students who complete a coronavirus test any time after Tuesday will have priority consideration for student tickets for the 2020 football season, The Advocate reported.

LSU said last week that Tiger Stadium would have 25 percent capacity for the Mississippi State game on Sept. 26. Interim LSU president Tom Galligan said at the time a plan was being finalized that would require students to prove they tested negative for COVID-19 to attend games.

The student ticket plan, according to the email, makes testing an incentive to receive tickets, and the email directed students to the testing facility options on campus. The student ticketing plan, which was developed by the LSU ticket office and the university’s student government, said all tickets for the season will be reserved seating and students can set up groups of a maximum of four people. Student guest tickets will not be given this season.

The plan says accommodations are being made to try and have “as many students as possible with a ticket to at least one game” this season, but students can apply for multiple games.

Student ticket prices range from $12 to $30 depending on the game.

Student ticket allocation will be divided up based on class, the email said. Seniors will receive 40 percent of available tickets, juniors will receive 20 percent, sophomores 15 percent, freshmen and transfer students 15 percent, and graduate and professional students will receive 10 percent.
