ARLINGTON, Texas - Beer and wine sales will begin at all UT Arlington sporting events at College Park Center beginning with the 2012 UTA volleyball season.

"Allowing alcohol sales at UT Arlington athletic events is another added value to our customers," UT Arlington athletic director Jim Baker said. "We are committed to the well-being of our students and fans, and believe the guidelines in place promote safety and responsibility."

 The guidelines are as follows:

  • Sell beer and wine from all open concession stands
  • Ask for an ID from anyone who appears to be 40 years old or younger
  • Sell no more than two alcoholic beverages per customer at a time
  • Stop selling beer and wine at the start of the third game of volleyball matches and at the beginning of the second half of basketball games

Domestic brands will sell for $6 per cup and premium labels will sell for $7 per cup.

Tailgating on campus has also been approved for sporting events at College Park Center, and for baseball and softball games. Approved locations for tailgating include The Green at College Park, and parking lots adjacent to Clay Gould Ballpark and Allan Saxe Field.
