“It’s Games Time!”: 40th Anniversary Alabama State Games coming June 9-11


MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The months of planning and weeks of work have dwindled down into a few days of anxious anticipation as the 40th Anniversary Alabama State Games are just days away. The events- https://www.alagames.com/sports– are scheduled for June 9-11 in Birmingham and Jefferson County.

The response has been quite encouraging with athletes converging on Birmingham from throughout the Great State of Alabama and several from our neighboring states. If you haven’t registered yet there is still time, but deadlines are fast approaching. Go to ALAGAMES.com to learn more about your sport and to register.

All athletes who register for the 40th Anniversary Alabama State Games and attend either the State Farm Athlete’s Leadership Summit or Opening Ceremony are eligible to win one of 17 scholarships ranging from $500-$4,000.

Since the scholarship program’s inception in the early 90s, $335,000 in academic scholarships have been awarded to athletes of all ages. The scholarships are to any two-year, four-year or trade school with no restrictions. They are also transferable between family members. Athletes who attend either or both events on June 9 at Bartow Arena will be gifted a 40th Anniversary Alabama State Games Commemorative T-shirt. Those who are unable to attend will have the opportunity to watch Opening Ceremony live on the Alabama State Games Television Network with stations spanning the state: Huntsville (WAFF), Birmingham (WBRC), Montgomery (WSFA), Dothan (WTVY) and Mobile (WALA).

As the days between now and the 40th Anniversary Alabama State Games are shrinking, it’s a great opportunity to talk logistics and release the venues we are going to be using.
