There’s reportedly a chance alcohol won’t be sold at NFL games during the 2020 season.

This according to NFL insider Peter King, who thinks the league could consider it as one of many options as sporting events slowly return to normal activity following the coronavirus pandemic.

According to King, if fans are allowed to attend games this season, the NFL might ban alcohol sales in an attempt to increase social distancing measures by fewer trips to crowded concourses and bathrooms.

King shared the news in his weekly column for Pro Football Talk:

I could see the NFL, if and when fans are allowed to come to games, advising anyone over 70 to not come. I could see alcohol being banned at games for the year. (Meaning, theoretically, fewer trips to crowded rest rooms through crowded concourses by patrons.)

They might as well not have fans if they aren't going to serve alcohol.  Football and beer go together like nothing else.  How are we going to have insane brawls in the stands if alcohol isn't served?  It just won't be the same family friendly experience.
