After a successful test to bring alcohol to baseball and softball games last semester, Texas State will be selling alcohol at home football games as well. Students will be able to choose from a variety of beer and wine, which include, but are not limited to, Miller Light, Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra and a few craft brews like Hopadillo and Ziegenbock.

When asked what was the main cause behind the change, Assistant Vice President for Advancement Communications, Matthew Flores said that it is something fans have been asking to have for years now. Students will need to verify their age by showing an ID to get a wristband to make purchases. As for the cost, Flores said that the price of the beverages would be eight dollars for wine and six dollars for beer. Consumers can purchase two alcoholic beverages per transaction and alcohol will cease from being sold at the end of the third quarter.
