Business expansion, soccer and suds

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local sports plex has some of its neighbors up in arms over it's idea to expand business. 

Officials at the Maracana Indoor Sports Complex, south of downtown want to sell beer.  After renovations and rent increases, the arena is having trouble making ends meet, so managers want to start selling beer to bring in more money. 

They will have to get the okay from the city, but the neighborhood association in the area says they don't want alcohol being sold at the complex fearing ‘rowdy' soccer fans.

The City Council is expected to make its final decision on February 12, but today is the last day for public comment.
