Underaged, Inebriated Easily Get Drinks at Stadiums

Vendors working the stands most likely to illegally sell alcohol, study finds

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 20 (HealthDay News) -- If you're a minor or already drunk, many vendors in American sports stadiums will still gladly sell you a beer or other alcoholic beverage.

That's the finding from a new study that suggests stadiums aren't doing enough to keep booze away from those who shouldn't drink.

People who clearly appeared underage were able to buy alcohol 18 percent of the time at 16 professional sport stadiums in five states, and actors who seemed to be drunk were able to make purchases nearly three-fourths of the time.

"We know that we have problems with fans drinking too much and contributing to problems in and around stadiums. We need to make sure we prevent these illegal sales from occurring."

The study authors launched the study in the wake of previous research into illegal alcohol sales and media reports about alcohol-related incidents at stadiums.

The researchers recruited two men and five men who were older than 21 but were judged by a panel to appear between 18 and 20. The study authors also hired four actors -- two women, two men -- to act as if they were drunk.

From September 2005 to November 2006, the study participants visited stadiums in five states and tried to buy alcohol. Selling alcohol to minors is illegal, and it's against the law in some places to sell alcohol to people who are already intoxicated.

The study authors don't identify the stadiums, mainly to prevent word spreading on where it's easiest to illegally buy alcohol. However, they said the stadiums housed professional hockey, basketball, baseball and football teams.
