Consequences of Sneaking Alcohol into Fargodome

With a few games under the Fargodome’s belt this year, students continue to sneak alcohol into the facility to enhance their experience during a Bison beat down.

About 4,ooo students attend North Dakota State football games, and Rob Sobolik, the general manager of the Fargodome, said a large percentage of the alcohol incidents come from the student body.

“If a student is found to have alcohol on them while they are coming into the event, the alcohol is removed and the student is ejected from the facility or denied entry for the day,” Sobolik said.

The Fargodome will take down the student’s name and hand that information over to the university.

If alcohol is found it will than be confiscated and properly disposed of on the spot.

Sobolik said he doesn’t know exactly the number of incidents that happen at NDSU football games, but there are more than a few every time a home game is played.

“It’s difficult to say a lot because everyone’s definition of a lot is subjective,” Sobolik said on the total amount of incidents. “There is more then three times each game that it happens, but considering there’s around 3,900 students coming to the game, it’s less than even one percent.”

Students older than 21 are allowed to drink in the tailgating lot on the west side of the venue, but no alcohol is available for purchase inside the Fargodome during football games.
