The US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs will begin beer and wine sales starting with the 2017 season at Falcon Stadium.

Cash only sales will start 60 minutes before kickoff with a cut-off point mid-way through the 3rd quarter.

Fans will be limited 2 drinks per visit to the kiosks. Cadets and anyone in uniform will not be served. All customers must show a valid ID in order to purchase.

Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton says, "We started a fan-engagement committee two years ago and one of the desired improvements was to offer alcohol in a controlled setting at games. We have worked hard with our teammates on base to ensure we have best practices in place to keep Falcon Stadium a family-friendly environment. We are confident we can do this responsibly and successfully and add to the fan experience."

The first home game of the year has Virginia Military Institute visiting the Falcons on September 2nd.
