LSU’s Tiger Stadium is currently undergoing a substantial renovation in its south end zone. The upgrades are scheduled to be completed in time for the Tiger’s 2014 home opener against Sam Houston State.
When completed, the south end zone will be home to approximately 6,900 additional seats, including up to 24 suites. The addition will bring the total seating capacity of Death Valley close to 100,000.
For fans worried about it being finished on time, Eddie Nunez, senior associate athletic director for internal operations, reassured that construction was on schedule.
“It’s on schedule and the crews have taken the work to another level,” said Eddie Nunez, senior associate athletic director for internal operations. “The construction crews have taken the work to another level and are working 24 hours a day. They are trying to maximize efforts while the weather is favorable.
“A lot of concrete is being poured and we are getting to a point where the building is closing in. We had some hurdles like you always do, but we’ve made up a lot of time and are moving at a better pace. That’s why you see the stadium lights on some nights.”
