LSU announces its beer and wine policy for sale at concessions stands in the general seating areas of Tiger Stadium. A new SEC policy approved in the Spring gave schools the option to sell beer and wine in public areas. LSU Senior Associate athletics director Robert Munson says it’s something fans have asked for.
“I think our fans are going to embrace this. I think they are going to do it responsibly and thoughtfully and as we always do, we are going to have a great time in Tiger Stadium this fall,” said Munson.
The school has yet to decide how much a beer or chardonnay will cost. Munson says they expect an increase in revenue from beer sales, but not sure how much.
“We know that our fans will purchase beer and wine, but we also know that it is going to displace other purchases. If you are accustomed to getting a bottle of water, a Coke, and a hotdog at a game, you may now get a bottled wattle, hotdog, and a beer, but you’re not going to get that Coke,” said Munson.
Sales will stop at the end of the third quarter and the SEC mandates all beer and wine will be poured into a cup. no more than two alcoholic beverages may be purchased per transaction. Munson says most concession stands will sell a variety of domestic and imported beer as well as red and white wines…
“We will also have some kiosks around the stadium as well, but it will be all be in the corridors, very convenient for our fans,” said Munson.
