The new Skyline Club in the upper deck of the south end zone will make its debut on Saturday.
“We are excited to be able to offer this new concept in Tiger Stadium to our fans,” LSU Vice-Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva said in a press release. “The new Skyline Club will provide an affordable club-level experience for fans, while also giving us an opportunity to continue to enhance and provide unique ways to entertain them.”
The Skyline Club features catered food and is one of the few places in the stadium that allows the sale of alcohol. Fans will have a choice of domestic, premium and craft beer along with multiple wines, but they will not be able to take the alcohol to other areas in the stadium.
Along with the Skyline Club, Tiger Stadium will have added food selections. LSU has partnered with Aramark Concession to enhance menu options.
One of the new menu items are fry staks, which will only be available at one concession stand in the south end zone. Fans can choose from either a crawfish stak — french fries with crawfish queso, sour cream, green onion and pickled okra — or gumbo poutine stak — queso, chicken andouille gumbo, cheese curds, sour cream and green onion.
Other items include:
•Tasso white beans
•Creole gumbo nacho
Besides food options, Tiger Stadium has instituted new rules regarding its clear bag policy and has renovated bathrooms. As of this season, fans will no longer be allowed to bring diaper bags into the stadium. However, the contents of the diaper bag will be allowed in the stadium as long as they are place in a clear bag.
The majority of the bathrooms in Tiger Stadium have seen changes since the end of last season. Thirty-four bathrooms have been renovated, and nine were expanded. The south end zone bathrooms were not renovated; however, the concourse in the south end zone has been expanded with the removal of 50,000 square feet of abandoned dorms and space.
