Athens, GA– The heat and the score weren’t the only things that fans were complaining about after the Georgia Bulldogs football game against Nicholls State on September 10. The UGA Athletic Association will no longer offer free refills on souvenir cups at concession stands inside the stadium.
UGA Assistant Director of Marketing and Athletic Association member John Bateman is hoping the loss of free refills will help keep the concession stand lines shorter. Bateman says they dropped the additional refills because “it was not proving to be the experience they hoped it would be, it’s clogging up the lines.”
Additional changes include new misting tents offered outside of gates 7, 10, and Reed Plaza. Also, a “black-out” game, where fans are encouraged to wear the color black, will take place November 19 against The University of Louisiana-Monroe.
