The university has also announced that ticketing and parking will move to mobile-only this season. All tickets and parking passes will have to be downloaded onto spectators’ phones and scanned. No PDF tickets and passes will be accepted.
Fans entering the stadium will also have to show “cleared” GuideSafe passport on their phone. A link will be sent to ticket holders 48 hours prior to the game and fans must fill out the needed information in order to enter the stadium on game day.
This comes a day after the Southeastern Conference released its schedule for all teams this season. The Crimson Tide’s first home game is scheduled for Oct. 3 against the Texas A&M Aggies.
