ASU tailgating rules: ASU no longer allowing kegs, alcohol games during tailgating

TEMPE, AZ - While tailgating is a football tradition, ASU fans will have to adjust to new alcohol rules for the upcoming season.

The Arizona Board of Regents adopted new tailgating procedures for Arizona State University fans to adhere to while waiting for kick-off. 

Kegs are no longer allowed in designated tailgate parking lots surrounding Sun Devil Stadium prior to football games.

Due to safety concerns, ASU and Sun Devil Athletics are no longer permitting games that "encourage reckless consumption of alcoholic beverages". That includes beer bongs and games like beer pong, shot gunning or flip cup. 

According to Sun Devil Athletics, campus and Tempe police officials will enforce the new tailgating restrictions. 

Athletic Director Ray Anderson said that while tailgating is one of the "great traditions" of football, ASU is encouraging its fans to "act responsibly on game day". 

ASU now joins both Northern Arizona and the University of Arizona in no longer allowing kegs during tailgating activities.
