MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University will expand offering beer sales to the general public at home basketball games next season.

Athletic director Shane Lyons announced the move Thursday during a news conference where he detailed a $15 million construction project at the WVU Coliseum.

Media outlets report the project’s first phase includes constructing more concession stands and food and drink options, more than doubling the number of restrooms and widening the concourse. A second phase will add additional arena seating for disabled people.

WVU began selling beer for club-level patrons in the Coliseum in 2012 and at football games in 2011.

A separate project announced Thursday includes a 12,000-square-foot strength and conditioning center for Olympic-sport athletes, a resurfacing of the indoor track and practice areas benefiting the golf and rowing teams.
