Bill Battle Director of Athletics


Dear Tide Fans: What a memorable year it’s been so far! Another BCS National Championship, a Men’s Golf National Championship, outstanding new coaching hires, and remarkable new facilities…just to name a few highlights. Congratulations to the University of Alabama staff, and to you – the Tide’s biggest supporters – on all of the continued accomplishments. In the midst of the achievements, we experienced the loss of a great leader and friend in Mal Moore. His life was truly a story, and his legacy a road map for the future. I know we are all so grateful for his tremendous service to this University, his guidance of Alabama Athletics, and his judgment to hand over the reins to Bill Battle. It was an honor to work for Mal, and it remains an honor to do so now for Coach Battle. We are anxiously looking forward to having you back in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Our staff has been working hard on creating enhancements to the services offered to you --- and they do so because they genuinely care about you and your game day experience. We all want this to be your best year yet in The Zone! Please use this Services Guide to answer any questions that you may have concerning club policy or the services available to you, but never hesitate to contact our Crimson Tide Hospitality Office at any time for assistance. Thanks for allowing us to serve you! Roll Tide!

Roy W. Robertson, Jr. President & CEO
