EUGENE, Ore. (KMTR) - A reminder from the National Collegiate Athletics Association that beer sales are banned during tournament games.
Guidelines prohibit such sales across the nation, including Eugene's PK Park.
The tournament being held in Eugene is the first in the location since the 50s. Starting Friday and running through the weekend, beer won't be available in the stadium's "Fowl Territory" like usual.
"Alcohol is obviously an issue on college campuses and so that's the stand that NCAA has taken," explained Craig Pintens, director of marketing at the University of Oregon.
Pintens said no one has ever complained about the ban. The main focus for a lot of fans is the victory and leisure of attending the game.
"We still anticipate were going to get hopefully 3,500 to 4,000 people in here tonight. Alcohol won't be served but it's not going to be an issue at all because they're going to be at the baseball game," he said.
The no-alcohol rules also applied to the NCAA's basketball tournament games earlier in the year, hosted in Portland.
Pintens said fans are welcome to tailgate for the games.
He said the rules will still apply for any games that are played Monday.
