Received a message from the Alabama Ticket Office regarding ticket returns if no season
Message is long. Quote.....


A Message to Supporters of Alabama Athletics
27 National Team Championships
99 National Individual Championships
192 Academic All-Americans
106 Southeastern Conference Championships

No question there has been a lot to celebrate being part of the Crimson Tide. Whether you witnessed the goal line stand of the 1979 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, or you were sitting in Mercedes-Benz Stadium watching the overtime win over Georgia in 2018 to win our 17th national championship, these are memories that will last a lifetime for all of us.

While we remain unsure of what is to come for the 2020-21 season, we continue to work through a multitude of scenarios and cost-savings measures to operate as efficiently as we possibly can in these unprecedented times. Despite the unknowns, we remain committed to the core of our mission, which is centered on educating, serving and developing the best student-athletes.

With the financial challenges Alabama Athletics is facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve already taken steps to help offset revenue shortfalls including a decrease in operating budgets for all of our departments and sports, a freeze on vacant non-coaching positions as well as facility operating and energy savings. We have a number of other strategies under review that we will look at implementing as decisions are made for the fall, however donor contributions, season ticket purchases and TIDE PRIDE memberships are vital to our operation and we could not be where we are without the support of so many of you.

Under normal operations, a large percentage of our annual budget comes directly from ticket sales and TIDE PRIDE memberships. In the event we have to adopt a modified seating model at Bryant-Denny Stadium, this number will be impacted significantly. While we don’t yet know the effects on individual ticketholders, we do know that we will need your continued and generous support.

As plans become clearer, the Crimson Tide Foundation and TIDE PRIDE/ticket office will work with you to provide options to continue supporting our core mission, including the opportunity to donate TIDE PRIDE contributions and ticket purchases as a potentially deductible gift to the Crimson Tide Foundation. Those affected will also have the option to elect a complete or partial refund of TIDE PRIDE contributions and ticket purchases.


While we are still living in a world of unknowns, we do know that because of people like you, we will come out of this together. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have generously supported Alabama Athletics over the years. You play a crucial role in the experience of our over 600 student-athletes, and we are forever grateful.

Our staff remains hard at work and is here to serve you. Questions for the Crimson Tide Foundation can be directed by phone at 205-348-9727 or email at ctf@ia.ua.edu, while inquiries specific to the ticket office and TIDE PRIDE can dial 205-348-2262 or email ticketoffice@ia.ua.edu.

Roll Tide!

Does he not know how to spell his own name?

EDIT: I guess you copied/pasted the body but manually typed the signature line? Didn't think of that to start with.

No. Copied and pasted the whole thing. What you see is what I received by email, including his name.

I guess an office worker sent the email and misspelled his name.

I remember when people told me this would never happen when I said it might be the only option to have fans in the stands this fall.

Got the same message. If any fans are allowed and it will be on the point system.

My account page says that I am ranked 9,364 out of 16,725. I'm hopeful that many of the ones above me are old and won't want to risk their health, but even then, I think the values on the secondary markets like Stubhub will be much higher this year. If there are only 30,000 tickets issued for Georga and Auburn, those prices will be sky-high. I can't imagine any season ticket holders turning down their tickets.
