Arizona State University is considering the “expansion of concession offerings,” including selling beer, at football games.
Senior Associate Athletic Director Rocky Harris hosted a Q and A segment on Twitter, and one fan asked if ASU is planning to sell beer at the stadium in the future, according to the Phoenix Business Journal.

According to CBS Sports, approximately 40 schools are going to offer beer at their football stadiums this upcoming season.
Currently, ASU only sells alcoholic beverages in the suite level at Sun Devil Stadium, so students and other fans who attend the game with a normal ticket don’t have access to purchase alcohol in the stadium.
Harris mentioned constantly in his Q and A segment that most of the major changes of any kind won’t be considered until at least the 2017 season.
However, Harris followed up the segment by saying there are no plans at this point to sell beer at the stadium.
