Hughes Stadium Policies

The infiltration of alcohol is prohibited in Hughes Stadium and will be strictly enforced. Landmark Event Security staff screens for alcohol and other prohibited items at entrances to Hughes Stadium. Visibly intoxicated fans will not be admitted.

Only beer and wine are permitted in the parking lot(s) and consumers must have ID wrist bands to indicate to authorities that they are of age to drink.

Alcohol service will be controlled very closely through:

  1. ID check-in stands with hand stamps or wrist bracelets.
  2. No sales to visibly intoxicated persons.
  3. A limit one beer per customer.
  4. Closing all beer sales at the start of the second half.

Ambulance need
In the case of an emergency that requires an ambulance, CSU police will coordinate this effort with PVHS. For on-field ambulance needs, this will be directed from the trainer/physician to the game manager. The game manager will then work with CSU police for ambulance coverage.

Banners and signs
Only those approved by the CSU athletic department, its vendors and advertising contracts and conference policies will be allowed. Homemade signs are permitted, but signs in poor taste will be confiscated.

Parking lots open three hours before game time. Stadium gates open 90 minutes before game time.

In case of evacuation, instructions will be given over the PA system. Gate personnel and ushers will assist in directing fans to the appropriate exits.
