EAST LANSING, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Michigan State University and Spartan Stadium will undergo two major changes at its game on Saturday. First, the Spartan football game will carry on without head coach Mel Tucker as he remains suspended without pay while a sexual harassment investigation against him continues. Second, Spartan Stadium will start serving alcohol.
The move comes after a new law signed in July legalized the sale of alcohol at certain college sporting arenas.
The fixed-location carts for alcohol sales will be at several locations in Spartan Stadium. MSU officials said alcohol sales will be regulated beginning one hour before announced kickoff time until 10 minutes remaining in the third quarter, at which time sales will discontinue.
In addition, anyone purchasing alcohol must show ID. Spartan Stadium is limiting people to two alcoholic beverages per transaction. Alcohol is not permitted to leave Spartan Stadium.
