LSU began mailing season football tickets Monday while working to reach out to season-ticket holders impacted by the devastating South Louisiana flood.
Athletic ticket manager Brian Broussard said the school has worked with its ticket printer in Arkansas to identify season-ticket holders in flood-affected zip codes. Those ticket holders have been contacted by an emailed survey to determine how to best to get them their tickets.
Season-ticket holders in flooded areas who didn't receive a survey should visit the LSU Athletic Ticket Office adjacent to Tiger Stadium or call (225) 578-2184. Broussard said about 2,000 accounts are affected, numbering about 6,000-7,000 season tickets.
"Hopefully over the next few weeks we can send those tickets out or hold them here for people to pick up," Broussard said.
Before the flood, LSU mailed out tickets for the Tigers' Sept. 3 season opener against Wisconsin in Green Bay. Broussard advised those whose Wisconsin tickets may have been lost or destroyed to contact the ticket office. LSU will work with the Green Bay Packers to reissue tickets if needed.
Assuming season tickets arrive as scheduled, the LSU Athletic Ticket Office will offer extended hours later this week with plans to be open Saturday, Broussard said.
Season tickets will continue to be sent out through next week, Broussard said. LSU's home opener is Sept. 10 against Jacksonville State.
