Soccer Set to 'Cram the Complex' Against MSU

BATON ROUGE — The LSU Marketing and Promotions Department has announced that the soccer team’s home match against Mississippi State on Friday night will be the focus of the fifth-annual “Cram the Complex” campaign at the LSU Soccer Complex.

The Tigers will attempt to set the all-time attendance record once again as they have already done so twice in three matches this year. Tickets for Friday’s match are only $1.

The squad drew 1,868 fans for its season opener against Southern Miss on Aug. 31, while 2,160 fans packed the stands against McNeese State on Sept. 14. The previous attendance record was set during the third-annual “Cram the Complex” campaign two years as 1,689 fans witnessed the Tigers battle division rival Ole Miss on Sept. 30, 2005.

“Our fans have been tremendous for us this year, and we look forward to another great college soccer environment on Friday night,” said LSU head coach Brian Lee. “We’ve always said that our fan presence is worth a goal a game, and that will be big for our team again this weekend.”

Fans in attendance at Friday’s match have the opportunity to win many great prizes as drawings will take place throughout the match, while special prizes will also be given away at halftime.

Sunday’s match against Ole Miss at 1 p.m. features more exciting promotions as all fans are encouraged to dress their dogs in LSU attire and bring them to the game on a leash. The first 100 fans that bring a dog to the game will get a free LSU doggie dish, and all dogs and their owners will be escorted to a special seating area reserved for the game.

Sunday will also feature a “Pooch Parade” at halftime for all dogs and their owners in attendance with a prize being awarded to the owner with the dog in the best LSU costume.
