5 Things LSU Football and Mercedes-Benz Have in Common

Louisiana State University Tigers football is among the top college teams in the country and Tiger fans are famously spirited, loyal and passionate about their team. The celebrated institution of college football has a legacy of winning and a devout fan base to prove it.

Not unlike LSU Football, Mercedes-Benz also is an icon within its domain with devout fans, elite status and a winning attitude. But you don’t always think about comparing legendary football teams with luxury car makers. So what exactly do LSU Football and Mercedes-Benz have in common? More than you would imagine.

1. Prime seating and great amenities

Tiger Stadium seats 102,321 fans, making it the ninth-largest stadium in the world and sixth-largest college football stadium in the country. Affectionately known as Death Valley, the stadium boasts plenty of premium seating reserved for fans who want to experience game day on a whole new level. Tiger Den Suites and the Stadium Club give fans access to luxury seating with the best view of the field and special amenities such as game day buffets, snacks and drinks.

Giving customers a special place to relax in comfort and luxury also is a priority for Mercedes-Benz. The car maker offers genuine wood trim and leather seats that make driving and riding a delight. Optional cooled and heated seats, along with a special massage feature and in-cabin aromatherapy available in some models can take your Mercedes-Benz to the next level of comfort.

2.  Excellent service for VIPs

The moment you enter Tiger Stadium friendly members of the LSU Event Staff and LSU Geaux Team are there to help you find your seat or answer any questions you may have. High-speed elevators are available to help you get to the Stadium Club or Tiger Den Suites and there are employees there to greet you and direct you to the proper floor. Staff at the stadium is committed to providing guests with the utmost service in order to maximize their safety and enjoyment on game day.

The trained staff at Mercedes-Benz of Baton Rouge likes to offer a similar experience. At Mercedes-Benz of Baton Rouge, every customer is a VIP customer. Staff members are encouraged and rewarded for going above and beyond to serve customers and the dealership. Providing a world-class customer experience is the Mercedes-Benz way and is evident in the company’s motto, “Driven to Delight.”

3. Winning is in their blood

The LSU Tigers football team thrills its fans with every big touchdown, win and championship. The team has won three national championships (in 1958, 2003 and 2007). And the Tigers are highly ranked among teams with the highest winning percentages in college football.

Mercedes-Benz also knows a thing or two about winning. The car maker delights fans around the world as it competes in motor sports events. Mercedes has a long history in motor sports. It currently has race teams in Formula Three, DTM, V8 Supercars Australia and Formula One. Most recently, Mercedes AMG® Petronas Formula One team drivers, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, have clenched either victories or second-place finishes in both the U.S. Grand Prix and Mexican Grand Prix. The same technology, power and expertise that goes into making Mercedes-Benz racing vehicles resides under the hoods of all Mercedes-Benz cars.

4. Rev your engines!

Tiger Stadium, which also is fondly called Death Valley, is one of the loudest places to play football on earth. Passionate fans, along with the Tiger Band and spirit squads, have been known to make a lot of noise. In 1988, LSU won a game against Auburn (7 to 6). The crowd’s reaction to the last-second win was so loud it was registered as an earthquake by the Louisiana Geological Survey office on campus. That game has since been known as The Earthquake Game.

Mercedes-Benz engines also are an acoustic phenomenon to behold. Mercedes AMG® vehicles are known for their distinctive growl. However, while the engine revs on the outside, Mercedes vehicles keep things quiet on the inside. Top- notch window and door seals, as well as each car’s special aerodynamic design, help keep road noise at a minimum.

5. Constantly improving to exceed expectations

In 2014, a new $80-million south end zone and upper deck expansion was completed at Tiger Stadium. The project added 3,000 club seats and around 1,500 general public seats to boost the overall capacity of the stadium to 102,321 seats.

Mercedes-Benz of Baton Rouge also is constantly evolving to meet expectations and better ourselves and the products we offer. The dealership is committed to providing an excellent experience for customers and always seeks to go above and beyond when helping people purchase the vehicle of their dreams.
