Getting Ready for the First Home Football Game of the Season at Bryant-Denny Stadium
Fall in Alabama, and most Southern states, means football. To the Bama fan, no place reminds us more of that than Bryant-Denny Stadium.
The stadium opened in 1929 and was originally named Denny Stadium in honor of former University of Alabama president George H. Denny. The stadium's name was amended to Bryant–Denny Stadium in 1975 to also honor famed Alabama coach Paul "Bear" Bryant.
This 101,821 seater is the fourth largest stadium in the SEC, the seventh largest stadium in the United States and the tenth largest stadium in the world.
Over the years many amenities have been added to make our time inside this massive venue the best experience possible. This year you'll see a few new additions and will realize all of the action on the field can easily be seen from anywhere in the stadium.
The concession areas have all gotten an upgrade complete with a new paint job and a point of sale system that will now take credit cards. You'll also notice there are 54 new 55-inch televisions and 92 new 42-inch televisions placed down each corridor, atop the concession stands and even over water fountains.
Fans going to any of this year's 7 home games will not miss a single minute of Crimson Tide football.
