Report: Oklahoma State to test selling alcohol at sporting events

Oklahoma State’s alcohol policy at sporting events could see a change as soon as spring.

According to the Tulsa World, the Oklahoma State/A&M Board of Regents approved a “pilot program” for the university to sell alcohol at athletic events during its Friday meeting.

The Tulsa World’s Mark Cooper was informed by an OSU spokesman that alcohol sales will first be tested at Oklahoma State home baseball games. The baseball team’s home opener is scheduled for Feb. 20, 2018, although, there’s no indication if alcohol will be available at the start of the season.

Selling alcohol would provide the university with another revenue outlet and the change in its alcohol policy would not be unprecedented in the Big 12.

The University of Texas introduced the sell of beer and wine at home football games over the past few seasons.
