Saints to meet with LSU on hosting home games

New Orleans Saints officials are meeting Tuesday with LSU officials about having the Saints play upcoming games at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Saints official Greg Bensel told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“LSU has been gracious and enthusiastic regarding hosting our future games, and we very much appreciate their partnership,” Bensel said. “We have also discussed the possibility of moving our home games to LSU with the NFL and they are aware of our exploring this option.

“Obviously, our overwhelming preference is to play our games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with partial fan attendance, but there has been no indication from the city on when, or if, this might be approved.”

New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell has repeatedly declined to allow the Saints to have limited-capacity fan attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.

LSU had previously announced that it will have fans this season at 25% capacity at Tiger Stadium, which has a capacity of 102,321.
