Smooth 1st day for alcohol sales at TCF Bank Stadium

| No Comments

University of Minnesota officials said alcohol sales at TCF Bank Stadium went smoothly during the first game of the season.

Yesterday marked opening day for the Minnesota Gophers Football season, the first season where fans will be able to purchase alcohol during events.

U spokesman Chuck Tombarge said that extra security isolated the area where the alcohol was sold and vendors stopped sale after halftime, which he said helped lessen rowdiness. Although Tombarge didn't have an exact number of incidents, he said that they were lower than usual, reported the Minnesota Public Radio News.

Tombarge also said that the total amount of alcohol sold at Sunday's game won't be clear until next week.

Around 47,000 spectators watched as Minnesota defeated New Hampshire 44-7, reported the Star Tribune. The Gopher's last FCS victory was a three-point win over South Dakota State in 2009.
