Cal considers selling alcohol at games, demolishing Edwards Stadium, to reduce budget deficitCal’s financially strapped athletic department is considering selling alcohol at football and basketball games — as well as the naming rights to Memorial Stadium — in an effort to boost revenue amid a massive budget shortfall.Potential expense reductions include trimming roster sizes for men’s sports and reducing the number of out-of-state scholarships offered; cutting entire sports was not specifically listed.Relocating the track and soccer programs to allow the campus to construct residential housing at Edwards Stadium.Before any plans are set, we will work closely with campus leadership to put systems in place that ensure sales are handled appropriately and responsibly, putting fan safety and the gameday experience as a priority.In 2014, a sold-out soccer match between Real Madrid and Inter Milan at Memorial Stadium “featured beer sales with minimal alcohol-related issues.”A task force commissioned to generate methods for revamping the department made eight recommendations in June, but failed to agree on the hot-button issue of cutting entire sports programs.
