The first bay (bay 26) of new windows were replaced over the weekend on the North End of Tiger Stadium. The new bay holds 12 of the 428 windows on the North End of Tiger Stadium that are being replaced as part of the Preservation of Tiger Stadium Window Campaign.
The Preservation of Tiger Stadium Campaign was announced by LSU Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva and the Tiger Athletic Foundation last month.
The first phase of this private fundraising project is to refurbish the 400 windows in the North End of Tiger Stadium. The North End Window Project is the initial phase of Alleva's plan to overhaul the entire corridor of North Stadium Drive between Tiger Stadium and the Maravich Center.
"Tiger Stadium is one of the most iconic venues in all of college sports, and it is has even more meaning for LSU fans around the world," said Alleva. "Tiger fans have grown up there, made friends there, cheered there and cried there. The memories are endless. That is why the preservation of the 86-year-old home of the Tigers is so important."
A contribution of $2,000 will allow TAF to replace a window in Tiger Stadium, which will ultimately help preserve and secure the stadium's future. Those donors who fund the replacement of a window will be permanently recognized around Tiger Stadium for their support.
Those who are interested in contributing to the project can contact the TAF Development Department at 225.578.4823.
