The University of Alabama and ESPN announced Wednesday that the 2016 Golden Flake A-Day Spring Football Game will be televised by ESPN on Saturday, April 16. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. (CT) inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Every Southeastern Conference football team playing a spring football game this year will have their game nationally televised, with 10 games airing on SEC Network and two on ESPNU. The Crimson Tide are the only SEC team scheduled to have its spring game air on ESPN.
The annual A-Day Game is the 15th and final practice of the spring. Admission will once again be free to the public. More information on A-Day, including additional activities, traffic and parking, will be posted on rolltide.com when it becomes available.
Alabama leads the nation in spring game attendance over the last nine years with a total of 733,532 fans and an average of 81,503 fans per game during that period. The largest A-Day crowd in school history came in 2011 (92,310). In head coach Nick Saban’s first year of 2007, the stadium was at full capacity prior to expansion (92,138).
