Let the beer flow and the profits roll in. Gov. Roy Cooper on Wednesday signed a bill into law that allows legal beer and wine sales at campus sporting events throughout the UNC system. Last week, House Bill 389 passed the N.C. Senate and House. Now that it has Cooper’s signature, the final step before alcohol sales begin at college stadiums and arenas is for the Board of Trustees from each UNC system school to vote to allow sales throughout their athletic facilities. UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham, in a statement to the News & Observer through spokesman Steve Kirschner, said his school’s board is in favor of beginning sales. In addition to UNC-Chapel Hill, the new law impacts stadiums and arenas that house NCAA Division I teams at N.C. State, East Carolina, Appalachian State, N.C. Central, N.C. A&T, Charlotte, UNC Wilmington, UNC Greensboro, UNC Asheville and Western Carolina. Division II schools Elizabeth City State, UNC Pembroke, Winston-Salem State and Fayetteville State will also have the freedom to begin alcohol sales at their stadiums and arenas. – STEVE WISEMAN, newsobserver – Read More
