UVa Backs Alcohol Sales with Hydration Stations

Andy Berg

The University of Virginia’s athletic department is hoping everyone enjoys the upcoming football season and stays hydrated while doing so.

The school announced this week that it is reducing the price of bottled water at its concessions to $3, according to WINA News Radio

There will also be two additional hydration stations with complimentary water and sustainable cups. The hydration stations will serve as a supplement to water fountains located throughout the facility.

The move comes as Scott Stadium announced this week that it will begin offering wine, beer and hard cider within beverage gardens that will open 90 minutes before kickoff.

The venue will issue guests of legal drinking age bracelets, which will allow the purchase of two drinks at once and no more than four total during a game. All alcohol must be consumed inside the perimeters of each beverage garden, and sales will end at the conclusion of the third quarter.
