Beer, wine will become available at The Swamp, O'Dome in 2016
If you haven’t felt inclined to shell out the extra dough for premium seats at The Swamp or the O’Dome, maybe you will now.
That’s because Florida announced on Wednesday that beer and wine sales will be coming to both venues in 2016.
At Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, fans in the Holloway Touchdown Terrace and Evans Champions Club will be able to purchase beer and wine until the start of the third quarter during the 2016 season.
At the Stephen C. O’Connell Center, fans will be able to do the same in the Sideline Club and Courtside Club until the start of the second half. The new amenities there will be provided in December 2016, once a $64.5 million renovation is completed for the new O’Connell Center.
“Providing alcohol in our premium seating areas for both football and men’s basketball was another amenity we wanted to provide to the fans in those areas,” UF athletic director Jeremy Foley said in a press release.
There are currently five other SEC schools that offer alcohol at football games and three that do so at basketball games.
