Fans attending University of Wyoming football and basketball games will be able to buy beer and wine starting in the fall of 2017.

The UW Board of Trustees on Thursday approved alcohol sales at War Memorial Stadium and Arena-Auditorium.

Athletics director Tom Burman says the idea is to provide a safer game experience by cutting down on people sneaking alcohol into the venue.

It’s estimated that beer and wine sales will amount to about $290,000 a year.

Burman says beer and wine will be sold until the end of the third quarter at football games and until the middle of the second half at men’s and women’s basketball games.

People won’t be allowed open containers outside the stadium when the game begins, and there will be a no re-entry policy.
