Fargodome Authority Reverses July Approval of Football Alcohol Sales

The Fargodome Authority reversed its July approval of alcohol sales at North Dakota State football games Tuesday evening by a 5-1 vote.

The motion comes following a summer of deliberations among city and school officials over if and how to offer alcohol to football fans in private suites and a proposed beer garden. An exploratory committee will be formed comprised of Fargodome Authority members and city and school officials.

Fargo City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn, who has advocated to delay any commission decision regarding alcohol sales at games for a year, said the ultimate approval will take time.

“You want to do it well,” he said. “We don’t need to be in a rush, and we have to have everybody’s safety in mind.”
