Alcohol may soon be for sale in TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota--but only available for those with premium seats, according to the Minnesota Daily.
A Minnesota Senate committee passed a bill Wednesday that would allow limited alcohol to be served at the stadium, Northrop Auditorium and seven other on-campus locations, reported the Star Tribune.
The bill would lift a mandate on the stadium that said alcohol must be made available to at least one third of general seating, said the Minnesota Daily.
The University decided to opt-out of all alcohol sales at the stadium in order to decrease access to minors, which Kathryn Brown, chief of staff for the current University president, told the Minnesota Daily. She said the mandate also forced them to reduce premium ticket prices and cost the University revenue.
But Democratic Sen. Linda Scheid told the Star Tribune any attendees of legal age should be able to buy alcohol, regardless of their seating.
