Committee approves lifting NH's ban on serving alcohol at college stadiums

New Hampshire state law bans most university sports arenas from serving alcohol, but lawmakers may be changing that.

A committee agreed Wednesday to let stadiums sell liquor and beer during college sporting events at locations approved by the state's Liquor Commission. They would also be required to obtain a special license, according to the Concord Monitor.

Some of the state's colleges are already interested in applying for the necessary liquor license.

The University of New Hampshire hopes to serve alcohol in both the sky boxes at the Whittemore Center and at the new football stadium that is being built, spokesman Thomas Cronin told the paper.

Serving alcohol can attract more people to these sporting events, therefore bringing in money for the state's colleges and universities.
