SC stadium gets liquor license for Beyonce, Jay-Z concert

August 21, 2018

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The University of South Carolina’s football stadium has received a liquor license just in time for the Beyonce and Jay-Z concert.

State Department of Revenue spokeswoman Bonnie Swingle tells The State of Columbia that the license granted Monday will allow Aramark Sports and Entertainment LLC to serve beer, wine and liquor at Williams-Brice Stadium for two years.

But Gamecocks fans shouldn’t expect access to alcohol at games, as the university says they only want to sell alcohol at “private, nonathletic events.” Southeastern Conference rules ban the sale of alcohol to general admission seating during game days.

The license allows for on-site consumption only. Aramark had applied for it in June.

Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “On the Road II” tour stops in Columbia on Tuesday.
