DESTIN, Fla. (WAFB) -- The Southeastern Conference, university presidents, and chancellors voted on May 31 to lift the league’s policy against stadium-wide alcohol sales.
The vote was taken on the final day of SEC Spring Meeting in Destin, Florida. The universities are now free to choose if they would or would not like to sell alcohol in stadiums.
According to Commissioner Greg Sankey the new policy will go into effect August 1.
SEC announces a revision to existing limitations on alcoholic beverages at events. Under revised policy, each institution now has autonomy to determine the permissibility of selling in its athletics venues, subject to certain Conference-wide alcohol management expectations. #LSU— Jacques Doucet (@JacquesDoucet) May 31, 2019
