In what it calls measures to provide a safer environment and help protect against fraudulent tickets, the University of Alabama is transitioning to a mobile-only ticketing and parking pass system beginning with the 2020 season.

The movement applies to season tickets, home single-game tickets, neutral-site game tickets, away game tickets and parking passes. In the new system, purchasers will receive their tickets via email, which will allow them to download the tickets to Apple Wallet or Google Pay Wallet, where the tickets will be scanned for entrance to the stadium. Tickets printed at home will not be accepted.

Those that do not own smartphones are encouraged to contact the UA ticket office at or at 205-348-2262.

“Information regarding capacity at all Alabama home events will be determined at a later date,” the release said.

Season ticket holders, with the exception of UA students, faculty and staff, will still have the option to sell their tickets online (Stubhub is UA’s official fan-to-fan marketplace) or transfer tickets to someone else.
