UA reminds Iron Bowl fans to watch for fake tickets

The University of Alabama Athletic Ticket Office is reminding Iron Bowl fans of the potential danger of being sold counterfeit tickets. 

If fans have any doubt about the validity of their tickets, they can visit the UA Athletic Ticket Office at Coleman Coliseum to verify their tickets during regular business hours, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Wednesday. On game day those tickets can be verified beginning at 10:30 a.m. by University officials on Saturday at the stadium by reporting to Gate 3 or Gate 32.  Officials will be available at those gates to examine any tickets. 

Unfortunately, counterfeit tickets – sold on the Internet and by individuals around the stadium and on campus on game day – can lead to some fans being defrauded.  With this in mind, the UA Athletic Ticket Office would like to remind fans that any person who purchases a stolen or counterfeit ticket may be denied admission at the gates and any individual trying to gain entry with a ticket found to be fraudulent could be subject to investigation.  Also, any person in the stadium who is caught with a stolen or counterfeit ticket will be ejected.

"We want our loyal fans to understand that purchasing game tickets on game day from individuals on the street is a risky proposition, at best," said Chris Besanceney, Assistant Athletic Director for Ticketing & TIDE PRIDE. "The lone authorized outlet for Alabama football tickets is the UA Athletic Ticket Office. Buyers who purchase tickets from other sources do so at their own risk."
