Multiple Auburn athletics facilities approved for alcohol licenses by Auburn city council – AL.com

Multiple Auburn athletics facilities have been approved for special retail alcohol licenses on Tuesday night by the Auburn City Council, according to a report by the Auburn Plainsman.

The licenses were granted through B&B Bartending, which was previously granted a special alcohol license for Plainsman Park during the 2018 baseball season, and were unanimously approved by the city council. The special contracts were granted for retail alcohol sales at Auburn Arena, Plainsman Park, the softball complex and the Auburn Athletics Complex, according to the report.

According to the Plainsman, which quotes Auburn city planning director Forrest Cotton, this is the first time the university has “just kind of gone for an annual contract” after a history of applying for event-specific alcohol licenses.

The SEC prohibits the sale of alcohol at on-campus sporting venues, except for in premium seating areas, which have to be completed separate from general admission seating. That’s the case at Jordan-Hare Stadium, where alcohol is often available in luxury suits, and at Plainsman Park this past season, where alcohol was sold at a cordoned-off patio tent down the right-field line that required a ticket, ID and an additional fee to enter.
