TROY, AL (WSFA) -

Planning on going to a Troy Trojans' home football game this season? There are some changes that you should be aware of.

The Troy University Athletic Department announced on Wednesday that some changes will go into effect to help enhance the fan experience at football games.

Alcoholic Beverages:

Alcohol will be sold at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Only fans who are 21-years or older and have proper identification are permitted to purchase alcohol. No outside alcohol is permitted inside the stadium.

Alcohol will be available for purchase at five locations throughout the stadium, two locations on the west concourse, two locations on the north plaza and one location on the east concourse.

Once a customer provides proper identification at the point of sale, a band will be placed on the customer's wrist, identifying that individual is of legal drinking age.

All beer will be poured into a clear plastic cup provided by Sodexo Food Services.

If a fan is found consuming beer in a cup not provided by Sodexo, or is found not wearing a wrist band, they will be instructed to pour out the contents of the cup.

Customers are permitted to purchase no more than two beers at one time.

Beer sales will be halted at the end of the third quarter.

Sodexo, law enforcement and game management officials reserve the right to refuse the sale of alcohol to anyone.

Tickets:

Tickets will be sold at Gate one and Gate two. Tickets will go on sale two hours prior to all Troy home games.

Pass outs:

Fans will not be permitted to leave the stadium and return without purchasing another ticket.

Will Call:

Gameday will call has been moved to the Riddle-Pace Field (baseball) ticket booth and will be open two hours prior to all Troy home games.

Express Lane:

Fans entering Veterans Memorial Stadium without a bag have the option to use the Express Lane at Gate one to expedite their entrance into the stadium.

Umbrellas:

Umbrellas are not permitted inside the stadium.
