Several B1G schools have decided to start selling beer and wine to the general public at home football games, but Wisconsin isn’t expected to join the crowd.
According to a report from the Wisconsin State Journal, school chancellor Rebecca Blank will make a decision on whether or not to join other B1G schools and make alcohol sales available to fans in general admission seats. Blank, however, doesn’t see the need to change the current policy.
“The university believes that there is already an atmosphere of energy and excitement around Badger game days,” the school told the Wisconsin State Journal. “The addition of alcohol to general seating areas isn’t needed to improve that experience and could detract from it for our students and fans.”
Seven B1G schools will sell alcohol at home football games in the 2019 season, as Indiana, Illinois and Rutgers have recently decided to make the change. Other schools currently selling beer and wine at home games are Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio State and Purdue.
Recently, Michigan State Athletic Director Bill Beekman said that Spartan Stadium does not plan to sell alcohol to general admission fans anytime soon, either.
