New wrought iron fence for Tiger Stadium
Tiger Stadium to get a ‘Champions Plaza’ and more
by David Blake
In the college football offseason, contractors are ready to do $8 million worth of work to improve the appearance of the Tiger Stadium. The chain link fence that’s been something of an eyesore along the west side of the stadium is being replaced with wrought iron, along with stone gates and archways.
Fans maybe even more excited about “Champions Plaza,” similar to the popular Champions Square outside the Superdome.
LSU has something similar at Alex Box stadium.
”It shows our six national championships there, as well as other recognition of great players of LSU baseball history,” said Vincent.
This plaza would be loaded with LSU football memorabilia, so that fans could experience the history of the sport. In addition, Vincent says they’re interested in expanding the stadium on the south end zone.
”We’re doing some ground testing now to see what that area of the stadium is like and what kind of problems we might have to tackle,” he explained.
They could add a mixture suites and both additional club and public seating.
