SEC commissioner Greg Sankey announced Friday that the league has removed the ban of alcohol in campus stadiums which will allow fans to buy beer and wine in public areas this fall.

LSU began selling alcohol last football season in The Chute, a designated area inside Tiger Stadium where fans could purchase and consume alcohol. Now Tiger fans will be able to buy drinks at basketball, baseball, softball, and other athletic events on campus starting August 1. Per SEC Sports:
quote:

SANDESTIN, Fla. - The Southeastern Conference today announced a revision to its existing limitations on the availability of alcoholic beverages at athletics events. Under this revised policy, each institution in the Conference now has the autonomy to determine the permissibility of selling alcoholic beverages in its athletics venues, subject to certain Conference-wide alcohol management expectations.

The revised SEC policy on alcohol availability, which was approved during the Conference's 2019 Spring Meetings, requires any SEC institution choosing to permit alcohol sales at athletics events to establish policies governing the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages consistent with requirements established and agreed to by the Conference membership. In the past, SEC athletics programs have been prohibited from selling alcohol in public areas of SEC athletics venues. Read more.

Problem is they have already forced us to be creative and figure out how to get our booze in the stadium... There is no way I am paying $12 for a beer when I know how to sneak in all the booze I want for a lot cheaper.

Sadly, beer purchases will not count toward TAF dues.

I’m all for this but all 14 stadiums in our conference might want to hire a few more security people that are capable of stopping and breaking up brawls. Like my Bama gal that dove over a row of chairs to get some. There might be a few more incidents like that now.

If a game enters any form of overtime, sales should be reopened. Amendment 1.

Only took 86 years after Prohibition ended for the SEC to get with the times.

Sales end at the end of the 3rd qtr. If alcohol was the issue will they be leaving at the end of the 3rd? Wasn’t the end of the 3rd when they started leavening anyway?
