NCAA alcohol policies - BleedsHuskieRed - 10-11-2010 11:15 AM

I always thought it was against NCAA policy to serve alcohol at on campus venues, however, I'm having a hard time finding that policy, and in fact have found more to contradict that. If it is within the rules to sell alcohol, I think NIU needs to seriously look into this at football games and basketball games. They are missing a major revenue source here. Thoughts?

I know Kent did up until half time. I dunno the rules though.

It isn't an NCAA rule, but I do know in some cases individual conferences have their own set of rules regarding that. Obviously, if Kent was selling it, then it is okay to do within MAC guidelines.

Quote:"Now, therefore, be it Resolved that NCAA members shall be encouraged to:

"Prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages during all preseason, regular season, conference and postseason intercollegiate events. [Alcoholic beverages should not be sold or otherwise made available for public consumption in the athletics facility during intercollegiate athletics events.]

"Promote only the legal and responsible use of alcohol by fans outside the stadium or arena (e.g., tailgating). [To the extent that an institution can preclude the sale of alcohol outside the stadium or arena, those efforts should be made. When such restrictions are not feasible, an institution should visibly promote the legal and responsible use of alcohol for all fans associated with the event.]

"Prohibit on-site alcohol advertising during all preseason, regular season, conference and postseason intercollegiate events. [Except when expressly prohibited by prior contract, institutions should preclude advertising, banners, and signs of displays for liquor, beer(including nonalcoholic beer) or wine products. Any permanently affixed or leased advertising, banners, signs or displays in the facility, should be covered during the event.]

"Prohibit media advertising of alcoholic beverages that exceed six percent alcohol by volume. [Immediately prior to, during and subsequent to televised competition, institutions should preclude media advertising of alcoholic beverages that exceed six percent alcohol by volume.]

"Limit advertising of malt beverages, beer and wine products that do not exceed six percent alcohol by volume and include content that emphasizes legal use of alcohol . These advertisements could include tag lines such as "Drink Responsibly" and "Be Legal." [ Such advertisements should not compose more than 14 percent of the space in any game publications; not more than 60 seconds per hour of any telecast or broadcast or not more than one hundred twenty (120) seconds total in any telecast or broadcast. Any such content should include an appropriate focus on legal and responsible use of alcohol.]

"Provide programs and resources for education, prevention and treatment of alcohol abuse."

I just don't see how selling alcohol at a college game is a good idea.

Agreed

Maybe on the West side only, but selling it to college students could be a disaster. First time someone gets hurt, NIU would have a lawsuit on their hands.

Considering the fiasco this summer with people complaining about students behavior on the East side, I can't see this going over well.

Why would it be any different than selling alcohol at a professional sporting event. I don't see how by simply selling alcohol NIU would open itself up to any lawsuits.

Mainly fact the crowd would be all young people who are more likely to cause troubles than your average pro team crowd. Add to that, I was told by the athletic department, that someone got something thrown at them last year in our crowd and that was what led to the East Side ticket situation. Considering the concern at the time was lawsuits, I'd have to think this would only make it worse.

Alcohol would be a huge source of revenue.
