Q: How do I get my student ticket to home football games?

Student access to UAB Football is provided free of charge to all current/active UAB students with a valid BlazerID card. Students will need to present valid BlazerID at Gate 6 of Legion Field to gain access to the stadium on game day.

Q: How do I get to the games?

A game day shuttle is provided free of charge to students, beginning approximately 4 hours prior to kick off until kick off and then begins again during the third quarter and runs until 30 minutes after the conclusion of the game. Shuttle service will pick up on campus at Blazer Circle (south end of green space) and drop off at the corner of Graymont Avenue and 6th Street West at Legion Field. The service is free and no advance reservations are needed. Shuttles will run approximately every 20-30 minutes while in service and seating is first come, first served. Please be advised that the shuttle service speed is dependent on traffic in and around the stadium. It is recommended to begin your route to the stadium early to avoid long wait times and crowded shuttles.

Limited parking is available to students on game day, see below for details.

Q: If I don’t want to ride the shuttle, where can I park my car?

It is encouraged to take advantage of the free student shuttle service, but if students must drive there are two options for student parking on game day: Reserved Student Tailgate Parking or General Student Single Game Parking. An advance pass is required to access the Reserved Tailgate area (see below for tailgate details) located on the west side of Legion Field. Parking in the General Student Parking lot on the east side is complimentary on game day only to current students with valid BlazerID. No advance reservations required but space is allocated on a first come, first served basis. All parking areas open 4 hours prior to kick off unless otherwise stated. Parking areas must be vacated 30 minutes after the conclusion of the games.

Q: Where can I tailgate prior to the game?

A limited number of reserved tailgate spaces will be available to students for each game. The reserved tailgate area is located on the west side of Legion Field, at the corner of Graymont Avenue and 6th Street West. This area will accommodate 50- 20’ x 30’ spaces to allow for a vehicle and/or tailgate set up for a group of students. Reserved tailgate space passes will be available for students to pick up Tuesdays at 9 am at the Bartow Arena Ticket Office, on weeks of home games. BlazerID is required to pick up reserved tailgate pass and all passes will be distributed on a first come, first served basis until all 50 have been distributed. Only one vehicle is allowed per 20’ x 30’ space but a vehicle is not required to utilize the space. Students picking up passes are required to provide contact information and select their space at time up pick up. It is recommended to secure only one (1) reserved parking space per organization/group to maximize the space available for all.

If students do not secure one of the available reserved tailgate spaces, east side student parking area (see map below) is available. All students are subject to the rules, regulations and policies of Legion Field and the City of Birmingham. UAB Athletics is not responsible for lost or stolen items in the reserved tailgate area.

If your BlazerID card is broken or can’t be read, you will need to see the box office for assistance. No other photo ID will be accepted for admission.
