PHOENIX — Arizona State University is expanding beer and wine sales at its Sun Devil Stadium to include all concession areas, except those for students.
The Arizona Republic reports the alcohol sales coincide with the university no longer allowing re-entry to the stadium once a ticket is scanned. Fans previously could leave for tailgating during the game and still return.
Vice President for Athletics Ray Anderson says the university is "continuing to enhance security measures for the safety of our fans, while also offering expanded concession options."
The university is completing reconstruction work on the east side of the now 55,000-seat stadium, the final major phase of a $307 million, multi-year renovation.
The first home game is Sept. 1 against UT-San Antonio.
