Alabama football fans got some big news this week, as the SEC and NCAA made decisions in favor of a return to on-campus athletic activities.  Health and safety are a top concern for the University of Alabama as student-athletes return to Tuscaloosa.

According to the Alabama Athletics Communications Office, the University of Alabama Athletic Director, Greg Byrne, released a statement on Friday, stating “the health and safety of everyone, including our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans has been, and will continue to be at the forefront as we prepare to return. We appreciate the leadership and guidance of the Southeastern Conference and its Return to Activity and Medical Guidance Task Force throughout this situation to best equip our campuses with educational materials and recommendations on best practices. Resumption of voluntary in-person activity is an important step in moving us towards the fall athletic season, which we are fully preparing for with a phased approach beginning June 8. In addition to our public health officials, we are fortunate to have an elite sports medicine staff here at Alabama, from our athletic trainers to our team doctors that we will continue to take direction from as we make decisions for a safe return. We look forward to welcoming back our student-athletes, coaches and staff to campus.”
