Tiger Stadium alcohol sales to start this football season

    LSU fans will be able to buy alcohol inside Tiger Stadium come football season, the school announced this morning. 

    Beginning this fall, LSU Athletics will allow beer and wine sales in public areas throughout the stadium, according to a press release, which also outlined policies and procedures for alcoholic beverages inside Tiger Stadium, including a fan code of conduct for responsible drinking. 

    The news comes after the SEC lifted its alcohol sales ban on May 31, allowing SEC schools to decide whether or not to sell booze at athletics events. 

    Aramark, LSU Athletics’ concession vendor, will sell a variety of domestic and imported beer, along with red and white wines, to fans ages 21 and over at most concession stands in Tiger Stadium. Alcohol sales will end after the third quarter. 

    “This is all about enhancing the fan experience, responding to the feedback from our fans and doing it responsibly,” LSU Athletic Director Scott Woodward says in a statement. “It’s a big addition to our events and we believe it will be a positive one overall, but we are going about it with the appropriate mindset and thorough planning.”

    Prices for alcohol have yet to be determined, LSU says, and the sale of beer and wine in other athletics venues is currently under review.
