Oregon State is expected to implement facility-wide alcohol sales at Reser Stadium this coming season, according to a report from The Oregonian.
In order to bolster revenue and provide a new fan amenity, more athletic programs have been moving toward offering venue-wide alcohol sales at their facilities, including football stadiums. That appears to be the case at Oregon State, as the university is reportedly preparing to introduce expanded alcohol sales at Reser Stadium for the 2018 season.
Oregon State has been working to finalize its new policy over the last several months and could make an announcement soon, per John Canzano of The Oregonian:
Oregon State is nearing completion of an agreement that would allow stadium-wide alcohol sales at Reser Stadium for the 2018 football season, per a source.
Autzen Stadium announced a similar policy last week and OSU has been at work for several months finalizing its own new stadium policy. It’s unknown if the current re-entry policy that allows Beavers fans to move between the parking lot and stadium during games would be altered. A source with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission said it’s working with OSU officials on certification and direction.
This is not the only similar policy change taking shape for the 2018 college football season, so the trend of expanded alcohol sales around the sport is certainly continuing this year.
