The SEC has lifted the ban on stadium-wide alcohol sales

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey has shared some exciting news for fans who like to enjoy adult beverages with their college football, and sports in general, in SEC Country.

Effective August 1st, the SEC is lifting the ban on stadium-wide alcohol sales, with a few restrictions. Previously, fans in club and suite-level locations in the stadium had access to alcohol sales, but not the general seating areas, and that changes with the restrictions being lifited. It will now be the decisions of each individual SEC program whether or not they serve alcohol to the masses on game days.

"There is no expectation that anyone make alcohol available beyond clubs and suites," Sankey shared in announcing the news during the league's Spring Meetings.

Any SEC school choosing to sell alcohol at athletic events will need to establish policies governing the sale and distribution of those alcohol beverages "consistent with requirements established and agreed to by the Conference membership."
