TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Due to overwhelming response, the University of Alabama Athletics Ticket Office has suspended until further notice the internet-only public sale of upper deck tickets for the Alabama - Florida State football game. In slightly less than three hours this morning, UA sold more than 7,000 tickets at $45 each to the game slated for Saturday, September 29, at ALLTEL Stadium in Jacksonville, Fla.
This sale will resume after May 1 - and then only if tickets remain following sales to season ticket holder groups such as Tide Pride members, UA Faculty/Staff, Lettermen, and UA Students.
The University of Alabama has been allotted 33,000 tickets for this game. The majority of those tickets are being reserved for Tide Pride season ticket holders, who may order Florida State tickets on their renewal applications. UA faculty/staff, former lettermen and students will have an opportunity to order their normal road game percentages of tickets on their forthcoming season ticket order blanks.
