According to a  new report, Penn State is considering selling alcohol during the second game of the season against Central Michigan on September 24.

The idea is not a new one. The school has talked recently about having alcohol sales in Beaver Stadium and the one leading the charge is new athletic director Pat Kraft.


“We’ve got to find other ways to use it,” Kraft said in reference to the program’s Beaver Stadium while at B1G Media Days. “That building should be used more than seven days, in my opinion. And we have to find ways to do that. We’ve got to provide ourselves the opportunity to really generate more revenue off of it.”

According to the report, fans will be held to a 2-drink maximum and the university will use a vendor to sell the alcohol. Right now only fans in boxes and suites are allowed to consume alcohol within the stadium. If all goes well with this event, the school will continue selling alcohol during games.

PSU isn’t the only school exploring selling alcohol inside their stadium. The University of Alabama also decided to sell alcohol inside Bryant-Denny Stadium during their home games after a battle with the city of Tuscaloosa.

Alcohol sales are huge money makers for schools which is the primary reason Penn State and many other schools have decided to go this route.

Editor’s note: The article has been corrected to 2-drink maximum.
