University of Alabama students will have the opportunity to attend the game for free. An email with the directions on how to opt-in will be sent on April 6 with the deadline to submit the opt-in ending on April 7. Notification of ticket fulfillment will occur on April 10. 

There has been no specification as to what the max capacity will be or how many tickets will be sold for the game. Last month, Alabama Athletic Director Greg Byrne mentioned he expected capacity to be kept to 20-25%. During the Alabama football regular season, capacity in Bryant Denny Stadium was reduced to 20,000 seats out of a possible 100,000. 

The A-Day acts as the 15th and final practice of Alabama Football’s spring practice session. The 2021 A-Day game will be the first in almost two years, as last year’s game was cancelled due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
