Family Weekend Package

Family Weekend packages cost $35 each and can be purchased once registration opens. A package includes admission for one person to participate in the Family Weekend Kick-Off, Family Weekend Tailgate, and the Student Life Brunch. The purchase of a Family Weekend package does not include tickets for your UA student(s). Each person in attendance must purchase a package. Take a look at the description for each signature event below.

Family Weekend Kick-off on Friday (weather permitting): Families will experience an evening in downtown Tuscaloosa with Parent & Family Programs. This event will include live entertainment in the beautiful Government Plaza and the option to purchase food from local restaurants and food truck vendors. This event is open to the Tuscaloosa community and is not a ticketed event. Present the ticket from your Check-In packet for a free picnic blanket (only available at the Kick-off)! This event is co-sponsored by Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports and the National Alumni Association. 

Family Weekend Tailgate on Saturday: Join Parent & Family Programs for a tailgate 2.5 hours prior to kick-off with food, goodies, and Crimson Tide tradition and pride!

Student Life Brunch on Sunday: Enjoy brunch with your UA family and Student Life representatives at one of our amazing campus dining locations. A great way to cap off your weekend on campus! You will select your seating time during registration.

Football Tickets

For every Family Weekend package purchased, you are eligible to purchase one football ticket, on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that your Family Weekend registration purchase does not include your football tickets, but simply makes you eligible to purchase a football ticket on a separate transaction.

Note about football game tickets for UA Students: Student tickets for the football games are purchased and distributed online and are available on your student’s Action Card. If your student purchased package D (freshmen) or package B (transfer and returning students), they should already have a ticket in the student section for the football game. Please check with your student to see if they have a ticket to the football game during Family Weekend. If your student does not have a ticket to the game and wants to sit with you in the stadium, you will need to purchase a Family Weekend package for your student in order to make them eligible for a football ticket. This also applies if the student already has a ticket in a different section but wants to sit with you at the game

After you make your Family Weekend package purchase, visit our Football Tickets page for information on purchasing your game tickets. With any questions regarding football ticket purchases, contact the Athletic Ticket Office at 1-877-TIDETIX.
