WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University fans planning to attend this weekend’s college football opener will notice a change in seating arrangements.
The south end zone bleachers at Ross-Ade Stadium have been ripped out. A new patio will replace the bleachers temporarily, until a new south end zone is built.
The patio will be available to season ticket holders and students with a VIP card. Fans will be able to purchase food, beer and wine.
Until this year, alcohol sales at the stadium have been limited to premium seat holders.
"We've had it in our suites and club spaces behind us here since 2001 so it's not brand new. It's new because it's sort of out in the open, but IDs will be checked and scrutinized and we think our fan base will handle it fine and it will be a good option for them," associate athletic director Tom Schott said.
Space is limited to 1,500 fans at a time. Purdue has no plans to expand alcohol sales to fans who buy general admission tickets.
