MADISON, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Cracking a cold one. It’s something Badgers fans who are sitting in general seats weren’t able to do at games until now. With fall sports underway, fans can now drink an alcoholic beverage at the Kohl Center and Labahn Arena. Before, it was only served in clubs and suites.
Although happy with the decision, one fan shared her concerns for students who are not allowed to indulge quite yet. Julie Nessberger says, “I do see a concern with a lot of our students being underage and going on campus. If there’s no disruptions to the environment, I’m all for having it available.”
The decision was announced by the UW-Madison Athletics Department back in August, but the change is not approved at Camp Randall except in club and suite seating. UW-Madison is now the eleventh Big Ten school to serve alcohol in general seating.
