Could beer soon be sold at Boone Pickens Stadium?
STILLWATER, Okla. – If you enjoy watching the game with a cold one in your hand, you’re not alone.
Several college football stadiums across the country and the Big XII allow fans to purchase alcohol.
Currently, Oklahoma’s two largest universities do not allow general ticketholders to purchase beer on campus, but that could be changing.
According to the Ocolly, administrators at Oklahoma State University are watching the effects that beer sales have in stadiums and will determine if a change needs to be made to the school’s policies after the season.
The newspaper sites a 2013 Journal of Sport Management study, which showed that universities that sell beer in the stadium gain an average net profit of $576,000.
Currently, the only people allowed to purchase alcohol inside the stadium during an OSU game are club level ticketholders.
