BIRMINGHAM – The UAB Department of Athletics will be operating UAB Football games at Legion Field to accommodate fans with social distancing measures in place this fall.

Football season ticket holders, UAB students and student-athlete guests will have top priority as seats are allocated leading into the 2020 season. UAB Athletics will be reallocating fans who have completed their purchase of UAB Football season tickets for the 2020 season beginning the week of August 3 to adhere to social distancing measures. Season ticket holders will be allocated based upon current Blazer Boosters Priority Points and the price type of tickets purchased. Fans will be notified of their seat locations and sent their season tickets electronically starting the week of August 17.

“Our staff has been working hard to finalize details for fan accommodations and will continue communicating those plans in the coming weeks leading into kickoff,” Director of Athletics Mark Ingram said. “Given the evolving circumstances, the best way to guarantee your seat in 2020 is to purchase season tickets.”

UAB Football begins fall camp on Wednesday leading into the 2020 season and expectations are at an all-time high for the two-time defending C-USA West Division champs. The Blazers return 18 starters to a team that won the second most games in history a season ago (9). Since The Return in 2017, UAB has won 28 total games – the most of any team in Conference USA during that span.

“Our fans have been extremely instrumental in our 18-game home winning streak and we are excited to see them back at Legion Field this fall,” head coach Bill Clark said. “UAB is a world class medical institution and we are taking the precautionary measures necessary to promote the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and fans.”

Season tickets for 2020 are on sale starting as low as $75 with the Family Four Pack. Additionally, Blazer Boosters members and current season ticket holders will have top priority for Protective Stadium entering 2021. Click here to purchase 2020 season tickets.  The UAB Department of Athletics has also announced mobile ticketing for the 2020 season. Click here to learn more about how mobile ticketing will work this fall. UAB Athletics anticipates 2020 single game tickets being available in mid-August once all season ticket holders have been assigned.
