U of A has green lit alcohol sales “to enhance the fan experience” for the upcoming season — details from Tuscon.com: The UA will contract with a professional, licensed concessionaire for alcohol sales, which will be offered at a limited number of concession stands. Beer and wine will be sold in plastic cups with sales beginning 90 minutes before kickoff and stopping before the end of the third quarter, according to the UA. “We’re going to do this the right way, grow into it,” UA athletic director Dave Heeke said Thursday during a tour of construction at various athletic facilities. The UA will be taking steps to ensure responsible drinking, such as increasing security at games and providing wristbands to drinkers of legal age, the UA said.
