Bryant-Denny stadium

With renovation projects of $47 and $65 million to renovate and expand the north and south end zones, Bryant-Denny Stadium is truly one of the top football facilities in the nation. The current seating capacity of 101,821 makes Bryant-Denny Stadium one of the nation’s largest on-campus football stadiums.

Originally constructed in 1929, the facility was named Denny Stadium to recognize the contributions of former University President Dr. George Hutcheson Denny. The stadium was re-named Bryant-Denny Stadium on April 10th, 1976 in honor of legendary coach Paul W. “Bear” Bryant. The 2010 renovation marked the fourth expansion since 1988 of this magnificent edifice and was the seventh time Bryant-Denny Stadium has been expanded since it was originally constructed. Other expansions were completed in 1946, 1961, 1966, 1988, 1998, and 2006.

The 2014 season was only the 14th time in the stadium’s history that Alabama has played all of its home games at Bryant-Denny. From 1990 until 2003, Alabama played at least one home game at Birmingham’s Legion Field.

The Crimson Tide owns an impressive 252-53-3 (.823) record in games at Bryant-Denny Stadium and holds a 339-66-3 (.835) all-time record in games played in Tuscaloosa. Dating back to the 1988 renovation of Bryant-Denny Stadium, more than 15.7 million fans have witnessed the Crimson Tide play in 199 home games over the last 29 seasons.

Walk of Champions

Following the 2006 expansion of Bryant-Denny Stadium, a new tradition was born for Alabama football now known as the “Walk of Champions”. Two hours and fifteen minutes prior to kick-off, the Crimson Tide enters into Bryant-Denny Stadium from the north end of the facility off University Boulevard greeted by fans and statues honoring the legends of Alabama football.

All fans, parents, students, cheerleaders, and band members are encouraged to come support their team at the Walk of Champions and cheer them on as they walk into Bryant-Denny Stadium for the game. Please assist in spreading the word throughout your school.
