JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A permit has been approved allowing alcohol to be served at some events on the Arkansas State University campus.

ASU says Arkansas Alcohol Beverage Control Board Director Bud Roberts approved the permit for the NEA Sports Club of Jonesboro on Monday, conditional on a final inspection of the facilities.

ASU’s Board of Trustees in April approved a 10-year lease agreement with the nonprofit sports club allowing it to serve alcohol to its members at Centennial Bank Stadium, the Convocation Center, Tomlinson Stadium, Fowler Center, Cooper Alumni Center and the A-State Pavilion.

ASU System President Charles Welch has said the plan is in response to requests of university patrons. System Vice President Jeff Hankins said alcohol will be allowed to be served during ASU’s first home football game on Sept. 12.
