The first domino has fallen.
Texas A&M announced Thursday Kyle Field will offer beer and win to the general public beginning in 2019. A&M is the first school to approve stadium-wide alcohol sales since the prohibition was lifted by the league at the SEC Spring Meetings.
“This is another way we are enhancing the amenities at Kyle Field,” interim Director of Athletics R.C. Slocum said in a university release. “We are extending the availability of alcohol beyond the premium areas which have had this option for many years. Fans, 21 and older, will have the option to purchase alcohol, regardless of seating area.”
Kyle Field will set last call for the end of the third quarter.
A move applauded by many, it’s quite a 180-degree turn from the school’s chancellor, who said this back in 2015.
