LSU ATHLETIC VENUES GOING CASHLESS IN 2020


BATON ROUGE – LSU Athletics announced today all athletics facilities will accept only credit card and mobile payments for merchandise and concessions beginning in the fall of 2020. The move to cashless operations is designed to minimize points of contact for fans and improve speed of service.

“This is all about improving the fan experience and safety at our venues,” said Robert Munson, senior associate athletic director. “Reducing contact points when making transactions is a key component of that and will allow our fans to purchase concessions and merchandise with a heightened level of comfort.”

LSU Athletics also recently announced a move to digital tickets for LSU football games in order to reduce contact points at entry at Tiger Stadium.

Fans at LSU athletic events will be able to purchase concessions and merchandise using one of four payment types:

-All major credit cards
-Apple Pay
-Android Pay
-Tiger Cash


For those fans that do not have one of the four payment types available, LSU is working on a prepaid credit card purchase option.

LSU Athletics concessions in general seating areas are operated by Aramark.

SpencerRob = a-hole. I’ve got six season tickets. 2 on west side 4 on east. All I’m saying is that it’s easier giving the kids some cash. Also dumb is you worrying about me.

I’m not worried about you in the least, I just can’t stand bitching about a change that isn’t that big of a deal.

Just another reason I will opting out of whatever tickets are offered to me this year. Depending on what the plan is for 2021 my 26 years of having season tickets might be coming to a end.

Dumb. What if you have kids spread out in stadium. Guess I’ll be getting extra debit cards.

What’s dumb is you taking time to bitch about it. In the unlikely event you have “kids spread out in the stadium”, and you have more kids than credit or debit cards, tell the little fat bastards to meet you at halftime at a designated concession stand, because God knows they might starve to death if they go 3 hours without jamming something in their pie holes.
