BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Beer and wine returned to the regular seating areas at University of Colorado, Boulder’s Folsom Field for the first time in 19 years.

The Daily Camera reports ( ) that Saturday’s matchup against Arizona State was the first time since 1995 that beer or wine could be purchased at the stadium - outside the premium seating areas. Alcohol was offered to those 21 and older in beer gardens, where it must also be consumed.

Alcohol was banned in 1996 as the school and Boulder cracked down on excessive drinking on and around campus.

CU Police Chief Melissa Zak said lifting the ban is aimed at keeping people in the stadium. Zak said that people would go to the parking lot, drink their beverages and return to their seats.
