Alcohol to be sold stadium-wide in new policy at Ohio Stadium

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Ohio State University has announced there will be alcohol sales stadium-wide as part of new policies being implemented at Ohio Stadium.

The policy will begin taking effect with the Buckeye Country Superfest June 18 through 19.

Officials say this will also result in increased security and improve the game experience for fans.

“We have worked alongside our safety, security and management teams and studied similar no bag policies,” Craig Stone, chief of the Ohio State University Police Division, said. “We are confident this new policy will create a safer environment for our fans. We also believe the policy will expedite the process of getting our fans into the stadium and to their seats.”

Also, part of the policy change, bags that are larger than 5x8x1 inches big will not be allowed into the stadium.

There will be one exception to the policy with regard to the size of handbags:

  • Guests with medical or childcare needs will be permitted to carry one bag, no larger than 14x14x14-inches, into the stadium through one of these locations: the Band Center entrance between Gates 10 and 12 or the Press Entrance between the Huntington Club and Gate 23. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
