Louisiana Athletics Announces New Ticketing Structure and Partnership with Paciolan
All ticketing services will be brought within Louisiana Athletics’ organizational structure
LAFAYETTE, La. – Louisiana Athletics announced a complete restructuring of the ticketing experience for Ragin’ Cajuns fans. With a targeted launch date of February 2024, the Louisiana Athletics Ticket Office will be housed within the Department of Athletics and has partnered with industry leader Paciolan – Learfield’s premier digital ticketing and marketing platform provider – to provide an enhanced ticketing experience for future events.
“We are very grateful for the ticketing partnership we have had with the CAJUNDOME for many years,” Deputy Athletics Director Trey Frazier said. “This endeavor to improve our fans’ experience and grow attendance is one of the most important projects our department will execute in the near future. Paciolan is the leading ticketing provider in college athletics and works with over 165 schools. This partnership will allow us to create a best-in-class ticketing and fundraising experience for Ragin’ Cajuns fans.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Louisiana Athletics to help them enhance their fan and donor technology” said Deana Barnes, President of Paciolan. “We look forward to collaborating with Louisiana Athletics to provide rich technology and insights into their fanbase to strengthen connections and foster growth with their fans, alumni and donors.”
Through this partnership, Louisiana will be provided a full-service ticketing and fundraising solution, including a fan-friendly web and mobile application that will make it easy for Ragin’ Cajuns fans to purchase, manage and resell tickets, make a gift to RCAF, and track priority points and historical contributions.
About the New Louisiana Athletics Ticket Office
After many years of partnering with the CAJUNDOME for all ticketing services for Louisiana Athletics, the Department of Athletics will bring all ticketing services within its organizational structure. The new Louisiana Athletics Ticket Office will begin as a team of four lead by Associate Athletics Director for Sales & Service Brandon Domingue. The remainder of the team will include a Director and an Assistant Director of Ticket Operations, who will be charged with managing the system set up and execution for all events, as well as a Director of Sales who will focus their efforts on growing attendance for all ticketed events.
The Louisiana Athletics Ticket Office will be located at the Home Bank Soccer & Track Facility Box Office, 111 Reinhardt Drive, Lafayette, LA 70506. Fans can begin contacting the ticket office by phone at (337) 482-GoUL (4685) or email at email@example.com in January 2024.
About the Transition
As Louisiana Athletics works with Paciolan on the implementation of the new system, Louisiana Men’s Basketball ticketing will continue to be run through the CAJUNDOME and the Ticketmaster system for the remainder of the 2023-24 season. Men’s basketball tickets will move to the Paciolan platform for the 2024-25 season.
The 2024 Louisiana Baseball and Softball season will operate in the new Paciolan platform starting with the first games in February of next year. Fans who have already purchased season tickets through the CAJUNDOME and Ticketmaster will have their tickets transferred into the new system.
Tickets for the 2024 Louisiana Football season will go on sale early in 2024 through the Paciolan platform. More information about season tickets for the 2024 Louisiana Football season will be released in January.
More information about the transition will be communicated over the next few months to ensure fans are informed and comfortable when the new system goes live.

Clear Bag Policy for all Ragin' Cajun Sporting Events
UL Clear Bag Policy: The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns implemented a clear bag policy effective August 2017.
The policy, which is part of a growing trend at professional and collegiate sporting venues across the country, will start with the 2017-18 competition season and will include all Ragin’ Cajuns’ venues that host ticketed events: Cajun Field (football), CAJUNDOME (men’s and women’s basketball), E.K. Long Gym (volleyball), M.L. “Tigue” Moore Field at Russo Park (baseball), Lamson Park (softball), and the Ragin’ Cajuns Track/Soccer Facility.
- Each ticket holder, including children, may carry one approved clear bag, such as a one-gallon storage bag, plus a small purse.
- The following bags will be permitted inside Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns athletic facilities and are subject to search.
- A clear plastic bag that does not exceed 12” by 6” by 12”.
- Clutch or small purse, with or without a strap, that does not exceed 6.5” by 4.5”.
- Equipment bag for necessary medical items.

- Prohibited bags include, but are not limited to: large purses, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, mesh bags, or any bag larger than the permissible size. Tinted or printed-pattern plastic bags are not clear, so they will not be permitted.
- A non-obstructive team logo on one side of a clear bag will be permissible. Licensed Ragin’ Cajuns clear bags will be available through the Ragin’ Cajuns Store and several area retailers.
- Fans can wear or carry items such as binoculars, hand-held electronic devices, and cameras (with lenses shorter than four inches) without carrying cases. Fans may carry in blankets and seat cushions that will be screened upon entry.
