Alabama sets A-Day 2011 schedule

Here is the official release from UA about the Alabama Crimson Tide’s spring game:

A-Day Game Scheduled for Saturday, April 16
Bryant-Denny Stadium set to host another memorable A-Day Spring Football Game.

The University of Alabama will hold its annual A-Day Spring Football Game on Saturday, April 16, at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Admission will be free to the public and kickoff is tentatively set for 2 p.m. Further details on television coverage and events surrounding A-Day will be released at a later date.

Last season’s A-Day Game was televised nationally by ESPN with a then-capacity crowd of 91,312 looking on at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Over the last four seasons, Alabama leads the country in spring game attendance with a combined total of 345,700 fans attending the event since 2007, an average of 86,425. With the recently completed expansion of Bryant-Denny Stadium to a capacity of 101,821 the possibility exists of an even larger crowd in 2011.

In 2007, a capacity crowd of 92,138 filled the stadium. In 2008, 78,200 fans attended the spring game. In 2009, Alabama attracted 84,050 despite the game being nationally televised by ESPN. In 2010, a capacity crowd of 91,312 filled the stadium as ESPN again televised the event.
