University policy change allows alcohol sales at athletic events


According to an email from Warren Strauss, K-State director of internal auditing, the K-State Policy on Alcohol Cereal Malt Beverage has been updated with a revised section .040. The section, titled Athletic Facilities and Athletic Events, now states that “all sales of alcoholic liquor and cereal malt beverage shall be conducted by a third-party concessionaire.”

Previously, alcohol was not sold in the general admissions sections of home football and basketball games. The new policy allows for third-party vendors to sell alcohol to those of legal drinking age provided that they hold liability insurance and indemnify the university with respect to such sales.

The policy still bars spectators from bringing alcohol into the stadium and reserves the right of the university to eject unruly fans from the stadium.
