New food vendors at Arizona Stadium
Arizona Stadium will feature five new vendors this upcoming football season.
The newly released vendors were selected after a request for proposal, or RFP, process that was conducted by Arizona Athletics, the University of Arizona Procurement and Contracting Services and UA Student Unions.
Four of the vendors are confirmed and the acceptance of the last vendor, which will serve Mexican cuisine, will be announced in a short time, according to Arizona Athletics.
Fans of the Wildcats will have access to food and beverages ranging from frozen drinks and barbecue to healthy sandwich and vegan friendly options.
Here are all of the new vendors:
eegee's - located on the west concourse (second and 4th levels), upper- (seventh level) and mid-level- (fourth level) east concourse areas and south end zone concourse
