Missouri registers impressive sales, low incident reports after first home game serving alcohol
Like several other SEC schools, Missouri served alcohol in its stadium to start this season, and the Tigers have reported impressive numbers following the first home game.
Missouri had $157,000 worth of alcohol sales in the game against West Virginia, a 38-7 victory, Andrew Kauffman of ABC17 reported, and there were no arrests and just 3 ejections from a crowd of 51,215 people in attendance, 13KRCG reported.
Missouri Deputy Athletics Director Nick Joos said that people were limited to two drinks per time they went through the line.
“We’ve really worked hard as we talked about when the SEC first changed the policy to ensure that we had a policy that provided safety first and foremost, would help cut down on binge drinking and then obviously, continue to provide an outstanding environment for all fans and hopefully we’ve done that,” Joos said.
In a statement when the sales were first announced last month, Athletics Director Jim Sterk echoed that thought, and added, “We consider that a win-win for our fans.”
Sales are also cut off after the third quarter.
