The Iowa Hawkeye Football Season is about to kick off. In the previous weeks, there’s been discussion about alcohol consumption of Iowa Hawkeye fans during tailgating, the football game and after the game. Initial statements were pretty strict but the Iowa University has since appeared to tone down their thinking.
In addition to the Kinnick Stadium 2010 Policies and Procedures booklet, there is a “Think Before You Drink” informational sheet. On the “Think Before You Drink” informational sheet, the Iowa Hawkeye University gives rules and guidelines regarding alcohol consumption. Also, what is acceptable and what’s not acceptable. Within the “Think Before You Drink” information, the Iowa University isn’t so quick to have law enforcement arresting people as the previous comments from the Iowa University appeared to indicate.
As things stand now, law enforcement may stop anyone who appears to be underage and drinking or have possession of alcohol. If they are found to be intoxicated or have possession they will receive a citation. If they are a University of Iowa Student, they may not be able to attend future games.
Anyone walking or driving on University of Iowa Property with viable alcohol will be subject to a citation.
Law enforcement will have zero tolerance for public intoxication and / or public urination. Any Iowa Hawkeye Football Season Ticket Holders given a citation for public intoxication or public urination will lose their season tickets and possibly parking privileges.
After a Iowa Hawkeye Football Game fans are able to consume alcohol within reason in University parking lots for up to one hour after the game. Fans are requested to leave the Iowa university parking lots within two hours of the game ending. The one exception to that is the Penn State game where everyone is asked to leave immediately. Random vehicles may be stopped and checked for alcohol by law enforcement.
Be safe and always have a designated driver.
