Also from Louisiana athletics: "Due to COVID-19 restrictions and socially distanced seating arrangements within Lamson Park, the facility capacity will be extremely limited during the 2021 season. These precautions are subject to ongoing guidance from state and local officials regarding safety recommendations and venue capacity protocols.
Season ticket holders will not be able to sit in previously held seat locations, as adjustments have been made by the Department of Athletics and RCAF to accommodate an improvised, socially distanced ticketing structure for the 2021 season.
Fans who were eligible for season tickets for the 2021 season are encouraged to utilize mobile ticketing. Ticket and parking pass pick-up information will be available at the Louisiana Ticket Office at the CAJUNDOME at a to-be-announced date in the near future.
