Louisiana sportsbooks are up and running. Residents in the state can now signup at one of the various sportsbook operators and begin betting on NFL, college football, NBA and more.

But LSU’s average home attendance in football, according to tickets sold, has not been best. It has dropped in each of the last two seasons – from 102,004 a game in 2015 to 101,231 in 2016 and down to 98,506 in 2017.

He explains a number of factors that have played into the numbers over the years, but the bottom line is that the Tigers want to see their attendance go up. These fans will also discuss a number of other issues relating to the game experience, including traffic and parking, customer service, concessions, in-game entertainment, facilities, security and seating.

Of course, it would help attendance if LSU is in contention for the SEC Western division, too.

The council is now accepting applications and future members will also be asked to submit new ideas for things they would like to see at games.

“In order to continue to be the best, we need to make sure we always find more ways to actively listen to our fans,” Senior Associate Athletic Director Robert Munson said in a statement. “Fan experience is a top priority for us and this council will help us develop what that looks like for years to come.”
