Crimson Caravan Schedule Is Set

Alabama followers get the opportunity to hear directly from the Crimson Tide coach each spring when Bama has its Crimson Caravan. Tickets for the tour stops are now on sale.

Alabama Coach Nick Saban and other special guests representing the Crimson Tide will make eight stops this year on the Crimson Caravan.

In addition to remarks from Saban and the opportunity to have him answer questions, there is a seated dinner. Also making the tour, so to speak, is the crystal football trophy awarded Alabama for the 2012 national championship following Bama's 42-14 victory over Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship Game.

The tour begins in New York on April 25 at the Terrace Club at Club Quarters Midtown.

Other stops are April 30 at the Wynfrey Hotel in Birmingham, May 2 at the Mobile Convention Center, May 7 at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, May 9 at the Wills Valley Recreation Center in Fort Payne, May 14 at the Harry Hinson Kiwanis Community Center in Andalusia, May 16 at Turner Field 755 Club in Atlanta, and May 22 at Orange Beach Event Center at The Wharf.

Each event will begin at 6 p.m. local time.

Tickets may be purchased from The University of Alabama Athletics Ticket Office at or by calling (205) 348-2262. If you have questions, e-mail

Tickets for the New York event are $100 each. All other events are $50 per ticket.
