Alcohol at College Sporting Events

Do you think it is okay for colleges to sell alcohol at sporting events?

There is a new trend of colleges turning to alcohol sales during sporting events. This trend is occurring in order to boost attendance at games as well as bringing in extra money for the school. Of course, the paradox is that many college students are under the legal drinking age of 21.

There are two train of thoughts to why selling alcohol at a college sporting event is either a good idea or a bad idea. Those who believe it is a good idea cite these points:

•Increased revenue for the school
•Improves the “fan experience”. People can now drink and watch the game live instead of going to a bar or staying home while enjoying their alcohol
•Less pressure for fans to drink outside the stadium since they can now enjoy alcohol in the stadium
Those who believe selling alcohol at college sporting events is a bad idea cite these points:
•No proof that game day drinking will decrease because the fans can now buy alcohol in the stadium
•Underage college students might be able to obtain the alcohol
•Binge drinking, public intoxication, underage drinking, and disorderly conduct might increase due to alcohol

Binge drinking either by a minor or an adult could result in a person becoming violent. This could lead to an arrest for assault and battery. Public intoxication, defined as “occurring where an intoxicated person poses an endangerment to public safety or causes a public disturbance while impaired or drinking alcohol in a public place” could also lead in an arrest. Underage drinking or possession of alcohol by a minor can lead to a misdemeanor charge. Disorderly conduct could result in being escorted out of the game or being charged with a crime. All of these charges could result in fines, jail time, and/or probation.
