Univ. Of Minnesota Seeks Continuation Of Alcohol Sales At Football Games
Published February 14, 2014
HOG WILD: WHOLEHOGSPORTS.com reported Univ. of Arkansas football club-seat holders "will be able to buy beer and wine at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium if a license for the sales is approved by Alcoholic Beverage Control." The purchase and consumption of alcohol "will be restricted to certain areas and won't be allowed in outdoor seating sections." School concessionaire Sodexo "will handle the sales." The school will be the eighth in the SEC to "sell alcohol in club areas during games" (WHOLEHOGSPORTS.com, 2/12).
TROJAN HORSE: Troy Univ. AD John Hartwell on Thursday announced that the school "will sell beer inside Riddle-Pace Field" during the '14 baseball season. He said that the decision "boiled down to two things." Hartwell: "We wanted to increase our fan experience. It also can help revenue, but the main thing was to enhance our fan experience and game day atmosphere." The TROY MESSENGER noted the beers "will be 16-ounce cans, but will be poured in to cups by Sodexo vendors at the concession stand." Troy will become "the eighth member of the Sun Belt Conference to sell alcohol at on-campus athletic events" (TROYMESSENGER.com, 2/13).
