Despite approval from the Southeastern Conference Committee regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages in its participating partner schools, UGA will not be one of them.

 UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity announced Tuesday the university will not sell alcoholic beverages in general seating areas for all athletic events during the 2019-20 school year.

“After consideration of the many facets involved with the Southeastern Conference’s revised alcohol policy, the Athletic Association has made the decision to maintain, at this time, the current UGA policy which prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages in non-premium seating areas of our athletics facilities.

A loophole has been made, however, in regards to donors to the school. Anyone who pledges money to the school for premium seating will receive alcohol in the school’s stadium.

The area will be limited to members of the Georgia Bulldog Club Magill Society, which requires members pledge to donate at least $25,000 to the UGA Athletic Association.

SEC has made it clear the sale of alcoholic beverages is not a requirement of partnering schools. Colleges and universities are allowed to not give permission to sell alcohol to consumers or fans.
