The UAB Department of Athletics and Bruno Event Team, the nationwide leader in sports event management, have agreed to a three-year partnership to advance the fan experience for UAB Football and its historic return to the football field.
Carrying unprecedented momentum towards Sept. 2 vs. Alabama A&M at Legion Field, UAB is making a concerted effort to enhance the fan experience. From the moment fans leave their house, to the moment they arrive home, UAB and Bruno Event Team will strive to make sure the fan experience is a first-class operation.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with such an established and nationally-renowned company like Bruno Event Team,” said Director of Athletics Mark Ingram. “Our goal at UAB is to make sure our fans have a remarkably positive experience at our events and the Bruno Event Team will ensure that at Legion Field this season and beyond.”
The Birmingham-based Bruno Event Team has been the front runner in sports marketing and event management since 1995 and sponsors events for the PGA, LPGA, PGA Champions Tour, NCAA, Indy Car Series and the Southeastern Conference.
Bruno Event Team will help revamp the UAB Football gameday experience, ranging from traffic control to and from Legion Field, tailgating outside of Legion Field, the launch of www.BlazerGameday.com (coming soon), shuttle services and much more.

Bruno Event Team will devote significant resources to ensure that UAB’s fans have a positive gameday experience.
“The gameday experience is instrumental in building the fan base necessary for a successful football program. We look forward to partnering with UAB for many years to come as we all work together to provide our fans many future memorable Saturdays.”
