KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The University of Tennessee will begin selling alcohol at football games for the 2019-2020 season.

Fans will be able to buy alcohol beginning on September 7 when UT plays BYU at Neyland Stadium.

The Southeastern Conference recently announced it would allow the sale of beer and wine in public areas during college athletic events – at the discretion of each SEC school.

"I appreciate everyone whose efforts have helped us develop what we believe is a comprehensive and responsible plan for alcohol sales at home football games," UT Director of Athletics Phillip Fulmer said. "The game day experience at Neyland Stadium is historic and unrivaled, and I'm confident these new concessions options will aid our continued efforts to enhance that experience for Tennessee fans and visitors throughout the stadium.

A maximum of two alcoholic drink can be purchased per transaction and must be poured into a clear cup. Click here to read more about UT’s policy.
