KSU has sold beer at K-State baseball games in Tointon Family Stadium since 2013 and at soccer matches in Buser Family Park since the program began in 2016.
“We want to continue to find ways to make the experience for our fans at our events more attractive and we feel expanding our beer and wine sales to Bramlage for basketball games will do that,” Athletics Director Gene Taylor said. “This was a decision that was thoroughly vetted with our staff, campus leaders and our Sodexo Inc., partners, as well as gathering input from our donors and fan base, and we look forward to this new addition to our game day operation.
Fans must be at least 21 years of age and present a valid state ID or driver’s license to purchase alcohol. Sodexo personnel will verify age and provide a wristband to those guests of age, who will be permitted to purchase up to two drinks per transaction. Multiple points of purchase in concession stands and at portable locations will be available throughout the concourse of Bramlage Coliseum, in addition to the premium areas of the arena. Sales will begin when doors open and close at the 15-minute mark of the second half for men’s games and with five minutes remaining in the third quarter for women’ games.
Taylor also emphasized there is no imminent plan to expand beer and wine sales to Bill Snyder Family Stadium for football games.
