— A planned expansion at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan Stadium might include the sell of beer and wine.

The $80 million project will add 3,000 seats in club level boxes and private suites.

UNC Athletic Director Dick Baddour said Sunday that the university is considering selling beer and wine in the new seating areas. The beer-and-wine idea is geared toward attracting more corporate sponsors and wealthy alums to the private areas.

General and student seating would remain alcohol free.

Baddour said the idea is just up for discussion at the moment.
