Championship celebration planned for Saturday

The University will celebrate the Crimson Tide’s 2009 National Championship on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Gates will open at noon. The celebration will last approximately one hour. Admission is free. Block seating will not be available for students; seating is first-come, first-served. The first 50,000 fans entering the stadium will receive a poster of the championship team at the Rose Bowl. Coaches and players will not be available for autographs before or after the celebration.

Parking options and street closings will be similar to A-Day games. Streets on campus will close at approximately 11 a.m. on Saturday. Colonial Drive will be blocked off at 8 a.m. on Saturday, which means that students who park on Colonial will not be able to move their cars after that time.
