Add TCU to the ever-growing list of Big 12 teams who will be selling beer at football games. Athletic Director Jeremiah Donati made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday morning.
The countdown rolls on‼️ Today I am excited to announce we will now make beer available for purchase to the public throughout the stadium. We look forward to seeing @MillerCoors and @sodexoUSA deliver a great experience for our fans❗️🍻🐸🏈 #GoFrogs #CountdownToKickoff pic.twitter.com/CaPrbb0KnB— Jeremiah Donati (@JDonati_TCU) August 6, 2019
“I am excited to announce we will begin selling beer throughout Amon G. Carter Stadium beginning with our home opener versus Arkansas-Pine Bluff on August 31,” Donati said. “Based on the overwhelming feedback from our season-ticket holders and constituents, we believe this addition will significantly enhance the overall game-day experience for our fans. As always, fan safety is a top priority to us and we will employ best practices to ensure the program is administered in observance of all appropriate safety protocols.”
However, don’t expect any discounts. Although I guess these prices are cheap compares to say, Dallas Cowboys games. TCU will have about eight different beer selections available, all Miller Coors brands, with beers costing $7.
The stadium will sell beer when gates open two hours before kickoff until the start of the fourth quarter.
Most recently, Oklahoma announced it would also begin selling alcohol during games. TCU now joins a list which includes OU, Texas, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, West Virginia and Kansas.
