BOISE -- Fans at this year's Boise State home football games will be allowed to drink alcohol at tailgate parties near Bronco Stadium.

On Tuesday night, the Boise City Council voted unanimously for creating the Ten to Ten Zone.

The Ten to Ten Zone is between the hours of 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. on Bronco football home game days where alcoholic beverages will be allowed in plastic cups.

The cups cannot be see-through and cannot display brand names or logos of alcoholic beverage companies, and anyone consuming alcohol must be at least 21 years old.

Boise Police Chief Mike Masterson says this will allow officers to focus on other issues rather than ticketing open-container violators who are otherwise following the law.
