Penn State To Sell Alcohol At Football Games

In a trend that is becoming more and more common, Penn State will join several other universities with the addition of alcohol sales at football games and other athletic events in a controlled environment, according to NBC Sports.

NBC Sports says university trustees voted in favor of a proposal from a panel of trustees. 

With the proposal given board approval, Penn State plans to sell alcohol to fans sitting in suites, club seats and reception areas at Beaver Stadium as well as the Bryce Jordan Center and certain other facilities on Penn State’s campus.

This move should generate more revenue for the university and open possibilities beyond 7 or 8 home football games. 

Updating the stadium and adding alcohol sales to Beaver Stadium make the venue more attractive to potential options for non-college football events like the NHL Winter Classic exhibition soccer matches and concerts.

Expect to see this trend continue around the country.
