Texas to sell beer at football games in 2015 season


The fans of the Texas Longhorns will be allowed to buy beer and wine for the 2015 season at home football games.

If Charlie Strong’s second season doesn’t show vast improvement from the 6-7 product Texas put on the field last year, at least they’ll be able to drink their sorrows after the school allowed the sale of beer and alcohol at home games in 2015.

According to Chris Hummer of Horns247, there are no more impediments for the university and the athletic department and Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium will join the other Texas sports in selling beer and wine.

Annabel Stephan shares more details:

Athletic director Steve Patterson has been vocal about wanting the sale of beer and wine at football games after seeing the benefits after basketball, baseball and softball games sold beer in 2014.

Joining Patterson’s beer and wine campaign was new Texas president Gregory Fenves who was in favor of giving the fans the chance to enhance their fan experience.

The fan experience will be a rich one if Strong’s Longhorns can make a big improvement in the second year in his tenure. Texas has questions at quarterback where Tyrone Swoopes is competing with Jerrod Heard for the starting job and the defense must find a way to replace first round pick Malcom Brown.

Whether they’re winning or losing, the beer sales are sure to be positive, but it’s much more fun to toast to a winner than drowning your sorrows in another beer.

Texas is now the 33rd school to sell beer at home football games.
