Alcohol sales at Ohio Stadium top $400k through first three games


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Officials say the money raised from alcohol sales will go to campus safety initiatives including the hiring of more officers.

According to a spokesperson with the Ohio State University, total sales through the first three games of the Buckeyes’ season have reached $412,000 in revenue.

That revenue will be used to fund campus safety initiatives including four additional police officers, and increased security at football games.

The university will also use the revenue to provide funding towards the center for alcohol and substance abuse.

Beer sales are limited at Ohio Stadium to two beers per purchase per fan, and alcohol sales are cut off at the 3rd quarter’s 10-minute mark.

The Buckeyes next home game is against Northwestern, October 29, at 5:30pm. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
