Club seat holders will be able to buy beer and wine at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium if a license for the sales is approved by Alcoholic Beverage Control, according to a news release.
“We are pleased that beginning in 2014, our club seat holders at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium will be offered a new service that they have been requesting,” Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long said in a statement.
The purchase and consumption of alcohol will be restricted to certain areas and won't be allowed in outdoor seating sections, according to the release. Sodexo, the university's concessions partner, will handle the sales.
The university will be the eighth in the Southeastern Conference to sell alcohol in club areas during games.
The release states that Sodexo has also applied for a license to sell alcohol at Bud Walton Arena and Baum Stadium, but "no current plans exist to sell alcohol at those venues."
