WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Beer and wine sales at Brooks Field will begin Friday, Feb. 14, when the UNCW baseball team plays host to the Seahawk Classic.

Late last month, the UNCW Board of Trustees unanimously voted to approve the sale of alcohol at baseball, softball and soccer games on campus.

The university began selling alcohol at basketball games at Trask Coliseum during the 2019-20 season.

UNCW released the following details about alcohol sales at Brooks Field:

  • Beer will be sold at the food concession stand and for select games a second location will be opened underneath the awning below the press box area.

  • Per state law, customers will be sold one drink per person, per transaction.
  • Everyone serving beer in the stadium will be a certified and a properly trained server.
  • Beer will not be sold to anyone appearing to be intoxicated.
