With the exception of a victory against Texas, Kansas football fans have had plenty of reasons to drown their sorrows the last few seasons.
The university is ready to supply beverages to fill some of that demand.
The Kansas athletic department announced Thursday that Williams Education Fund members with Jayhawks football season tickets can purchase a membership to the new Field Goal Club. For $400, Jayhawks fans 21 and older can enjoy beer, wine, non-alcoholic bottled drinks and water, as well as food options from Chick-fil-A and the Salty Iguana, while watching the game just beyond the north end zone.
The area also offers an elevated viewing area atop the club, and bleacher seating with seatbacks.
Memorial Stadium as a whole does not sell alcohol, though it has club options beyond its end zones that serve beer and wine. The Touchdown Club is at the sound end of the stadium.
Fans interested in a Field Goal Club membership can fill out an online form or visit Kansas’ ticket website. No more than six memberships can be bought, and the number purchased can’t exceed the number of season tickets held. A payment plan is available, allowing fans to put down 10 percent and pay the remainder in payments Sept. 1 and Oct. 2.
The Jayhawks have seven home games this season, including their opener Sept. 2 against Southeast Missouri State.
