Internet-only presale directed to Tide fans who are not season ticket holders.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The University of Alabama Athletics Ticket Office will begin accepting orders for the 2007 Alabama vs. Florida State football game from the public beginning tomorrow (Wednesday, March 7) at 9:00 a.m. exclusively via the internet at www.rolltide.com. This is an internet-only presale directed at Crimson Tide fans outside of the UA season ticket holder base.
The Crimson Tide will face the Seminoles of Florida State on Saturday, September 29, at ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla. Both schools have been allocated 33,000 tickets to sell for the event. The presale is designed to allow other Tide fans the opportunity to order tickets to the game which are priced at $45 each. Other price categories are being reserved for Tide Pride season ticket holders, UA students, UA faculty/staff, and former UA lettermen.
Tide Pride season ticket holders may order their Florida State tickets, and any other offered road games, with their season renewal form, which also will be available online beginning March 7. By ordering on their renewal form, season ticket holders will ensure their Florida State tickets are assigned by their current priority points.
Tide Pride season ticket holders will be mailed their printed season renewal forms on March 19, with the same opportunity to order Florida State tickets.
Alabama students, faculty/staff, and former lettermen should also order Florida State tickets in the same manner in which they always order road game tickets, which is through their forthcoming season ticket order blank. Student, faculty/staff, and former lettermen priorities and order limits will follow regular road game allotments.
All Florida State ticket orders and locations will be prioritized by Tide Totals priority points. Both universities have been allocated an equal allotment of tickets, so all Tide fans are encouraged to order Florida State tickets from the University of Alabama. The March 7 pre-sale to the public in no way affects a Tide Pride season ticket holder's location for the Florida State game, as all orders will be allocated and accepted according to Tide Total priority points.
Thus, a Tide Pride season ticket holder who elected to order Florida State tickets on their printed renewal form (to be mailed March 19) will have the same ordering access and opportunity as a Tide Pride season ticket holder that ordered and renewed season tickets via the internet.
