Neyland Stadium is now smoke-free


The University of Tennessee’s Neyland Stadium is now a smoke-free environment.

In compliance with a new state law passed this year that prohibits smoking in all enclosed public places, smoking will no longer be allowed inside stadium gates.

The “Non-Smoker Protection Act” signed into law this June applies to sports arenas, including indoor and outdoor areas. Last year the university limited smoking to ramp areas and the Gate 21 plaza.

The new policy will start with the Volunteers’ first home game at 7 p.m., Sept. 8, against Southern Mississippi.

Tennessee will become the fifth SEC school to ban smoking: Arkansas, Florida, LSU and South Carolina have already banned smoking in their stadiums.
