Beer and wine to be sold at spring UT sporting events

Posted: Updated:

UT will begin selling alcohol at select UT sporting events starting Friday.

Beer and wine will be sold at Red & Charline McCombs Field when Texas Softball hosts Texas Invitational.

"This trial will be in effect this spring for all remaining men's and women's basketball, softball and baseball games, and the fan fest area at the Texas Relays," said UT Men's Athletics Director Steve Patterson. "We could look into expanding it for other sports events next fall provided the outcome of the trial is positive."

UT says at the end of the 2014 spring sports seasons, they will evaluate the effectiveness and safety of the trial to determine if alcohol would be sold at other sporting events.

Beer and wine will not be sold at the April 19 football game at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium.
