LSU has set the capacity level inside The Chute at about 800 people to maintain a comfortable—not crowded—atmosphere, and fans have reached that number at every home game since the Sept. 8 season opener, says Robert Munson, LSU senior associate athletic director. The new beer section, however, is not a major revenue generator for LSU, because LSU does not make money on alcohol sales in the stadium. Rather, the outside concession company Aramark collects proceeds from beer and admission sales at The Chute. Aramark does pay LSU a vendor fee based on stadium attendance, Munson says, declining to disclose the amount. Total stadium attendance has also been up.
