The University of Toledo says it has earned nearly $90,000 in alcohol sales at home football and basketball games since it began offering beer and wine to fans over the age of 21 last year.
During the Rockets' football season last fall, the school took in $63,084 from the sale of 16-ounce beer bottles and sealed cups of wine inside the Glass Bowl, according to university spokesperson Meghan Cunningham. $26,562 has been earned from alcohol sales at Savage Arena.
Rocky's Pub and Grill has earned $875.
The school was issued a permit to sell alcohol on campus last year, allowing them to sell beer and wine to fans inside the Glass Bowl and Savage Arena. The school proposed the license in May 2013 as a way to offset a decrease in state funding.
Beer and wine became available to fans 21-years and older beginning with the fall 2013 Rockets football season.
Fellow Mid-American Conference schools Bowling Green, Akron, and Kent State also offer adult beverages at stadium concession stands.
