Fans Approve Of Alcohol During Game



Bookmark and Share

The University of South Dakota had more to offer than just a good match up against North Dakota State University on Saturday night.

 Earlier this month the City Council approved a special one-day liquor license for the game. Anyone who wanted to drink at the game was asked to present his or her I.D. and get a wristband. Fans were only allowed to purchase 2 drinks at a time.
    
 Steve Ross, who has a son that plays for USD, believed the limit on alcohol would help control the crowd and still allow others to have a good time.

He said, “It makes a person more relaxed and in certain instances it makes them cheer for their team even more.”

USD moved the game from the Dakota dome to Howard Wood Field earlier this year in an attempt to increase it's presence in Sioux Falls.  The stadium is typically a dry facility because it is the Sioux Falls School District's property. However, the Sioux Falls Sports Authority worked out an agreement with the district to be able to sell it. By allowing alcohol to be served to a stadium that can fit up to 10,000 people, the city hoped it would create more revenue.
     
Regardless of whether they could drink or not, most people were just looking forward to great game.
