Another SEC school has approved stadium-wide alcohol sales at home football games. This fall fans can purchase beer and wine at Neyland Stadium.
“I appreciate everyone whose efforts have helped us develop what we believe is a comprehensive and responsible plan for alcohol sales at home football games,” Tennessee Director of Athletics Phillip Fulmer said. “The game day experience at Neyland Stadium is historic and unrivaled, and I’m confident these new concessions options will aid our continued efforts to enhance that experience for Tennessee fans and visitors throughout the stadium.
“We remain committed to providing a safe, positive, and family-friendly atmosphere in our venues and have measures in place to assure that standard is met.”
Tennessee joins Arkansas, LSU, Missouri, Vanderbilt and Texas A&M in the pro-alcohol SEC community. Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, and Mississippi State will exclusively sell alcohol in premium seating areas.
