Florida State stands to make $5.1 million in each of its two upcoming non-conference games against LSU, according to contracts released Friday by the Seminoles.
FSU’s first meeting against LSU will be on the Saturday or Sunday of Labor Day weekend in 2022 in New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Seminoles will make $5.1 million from that, assuming they sell all of their 30,000 allotted tickets.
FSU will also receive 100 free hotel rooms at the New Orleans Marriott, 50 complimentary parking spaces for cars and another 20 for buses. Also, room for no more than 500 band members at the stadium.
The second game in the series will be the next year, also on the Saturday or Sunday of Labor Day weekend, at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium. The $5.1 million payday is the same. FSU will wear dark uniforms in that game and also receives 100 free hotel rooms.
The game will allocate 600 student/band tickets for FSU at $50 each.
