LAWTON — University of Oklahoma President James L. Gallogly recommended a pilot program to the board of regents for the sale and advertising of alcoholic beverages at athletic facilities and events. At a meeting in Lawton, Gallogly said that while the plan is not to have alcohol sales for this football season as there are only a few home games left, he proposed a pilot program for sales to be in place for implementation during the 2018-19 men's and women's basketball seasons at the Lloyd Noble Center and for the 2018-19 baseball and softball seasons.
The university will report outcomes of the pilot program to the board of regents in May and may seek approval of the regents to continue the sale and advertising of alcoholic beverages at that time. Gallogly also recommended approval of the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium Bowl Improvement Project, which incorporates improvements for the addition of handrails, aisle and seat widening, an additional 158 ADA and companion seats and other structural maintenance and repairs. The project also adds Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the stadium. The improvements have been funded by Athletics Department capital funds and through private funds.
