Some Tide Football Tickets Available

There are those who think The University of Alabama Athletics Department wasted a great deal of money in the most recent modernizations of Bryant-Denny Stadium. Why, pray tell, were ticket booths included? There is never a ticket for sale to an Alabama football game. Well, almost never, that is. Here's some good ticket news for Crimson Tide fans.

Each year, Alabama makes a deal with each football opponent regarding tickets. Although Bama almost never refunds any tickets to away games, it seems that some on the other side aren't interested in seeing their teams against the Crimson Tide.

It helps that Bryant-Denny Stadium seats 101,821.

Due to returns from various allotments, a limited number of tickets are available for several 2012 University of Alabama home football games – Western Kentucky ($55 each), Florida Atlantic ($55 each), Ole Miss ($70 each), Mississippi State ($70 each) and Western Carolina ($55 each).

These tickets will go on sale Wednesday at 8 a.m. CDT. There is no limit on the number of tickets a person may purchase for any of the games.

Additionally, packages located in the South End Zone Field Suite area are currently available for the games against Western Kentucky, Mississippi, Mississippi State and Western Carolina. The Field Suite is an upscale area of the stadium, which includes a food amenity. For more information on Field Suite ticket availability please call (205) 348-2262.

Fans may order tickets online at and may take advantage of the "Print at Home" deliver method for instant delivery. Fans may also call (205) 348-2262, or toll free at 1-877-TIDETIX (843-3849). The Athletic Ticket Office in Coleman Coliseum is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Extended hours for phone orders are through 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

Alabama opens the season Sept. 1 against Michigan in Arlington, Texas. The first home game is Sept. 8 when Bama hosts Western Kentucky.
