COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Tribune News Service) — There will be new beer options at Falcon Stadium, along with easier access to different levels.
A partnership with Anheuser Busch will make Bud Light and Breckenridge Brewery the official beer and craft beer of Air Force athletics. The agreement will expand the craft beer options at the stadium. The school said it will also use new assets to speed up beverage lines. A partnership with Tailgate Guys has added reserved locations and options.
"This partnership (with Anheuser Busch), along with the other additions, will greatly improve the experience for our fans," athletic director Nathan Pine said in a press release.
Air Force added the sale of beer prior to the 2017 season, with Coors serving as the original partner.
Work is still being done to complete a set of elevators on the stadium's south side. One will run from the concourse near the south entrance to the second level, where a connection can be made to a second elevator to the third level. Handrails have also been improved as part of a $4.8 million project to bring the stadium into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
It is likely the elevators will be ready by the second home game Sept. 27 against San Jose State but not for the opener Aug. 31 against Colgate.
Also new for this season is an agreement with the American Forces Network to carry Falcons football games in 168 countries. The games will also be carried regionally by KVOR 740 AM in Colorado Springs and The Fan 104.3 FM in Denver.
