TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama is looking forward to hosting another sellout crowd when the Crimson Tide football team hosts the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and the UA Athletic Ticket Office wishes to remind fans of the potential danger of being sold counterfeit tickets at Tide home games.
If fans have any doubt about the validity of their tickets, they can visit the UA Athletic Ticket Office at Coleman Coliseum to verify their tickets during regular business hours, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. On game day those tickets can be verified beginning at 3 p.m. by University officials on Saturday at the stadium by reporting to Gate 3 or Gate 32. Officials will be available at those gates to examine any tickets.
Unfortunately, counterfeit tickets – sold on the Internet and by individuals around the stadium and on campus on game day – can lead to some fans being defrauded. With this in mind, the UA Athletic Ticket Office would like to remind fans that any person who purchases a stolen or counterfeit ticket may be denied admission at the gates and any individual trying to gain entry with a ticket found to be fraudulent could be subject to investigation. Also, any person in the stadium who is caught with a stolen or counterfeit ticket will be ejected.
The lone authorized outlet for Alabama football tickets is the UA Athletic Ticket Office. Buyers who purchase tickets from other sources do so at their own risk.
Bryant-Denny Stadium gate agents will be strictly and consistently applying the rules at this Saturday’s game. So, even if you have been able to take an out-sized bag into the stadium before, you should not count on being able to do that this weekend.
Bryant-Denny Stadium and all Alabama athletics facilities prohibit the following items:
-Oversized bags over 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches (includes backpacks, purses, etc.)
-Chair backs larger than a single seat (16 inches wide)
-Artificial noisemakers (bells, horns, whistles, cow bells, etc.)
-Outside food or drink
-Video recorders or camcorders
-Cameras with telephoto lenses over 6 inches long
-Flags and banners on poles
