WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest will have stadium-wide beer and wine sales for home football and basketball games this season.

The school previously sold alcoholic beverages in select areas of Deacon Tower, Bridger Field House and Top Hat Tavern at BB&T Field during football games, as well as in a corporate-sponsored area at Joel Coliseum for basketball.

The school said Thursday it will add additional security personnel and require a wrist band for alcohol purchases. Wake Forest is also considering alcohol sales for baseball and soccer games.

In a statement, athletic director Ron Wellman cited favorable reviews from fans since the 2014 opening of Top Hat Tavern as a factor in the decision. He said the school has consulted with other universities regarding best practices for alcohol sales.
