Frequently Asked Questions
What is Blazer Boosters?
Blazer Boosters is the fundraising arm of UAB Athletics and serves as the primary source of revenue for the athletics department. Members of Blazer Boosters are alumni and friends of UAB who recognize the value of the student-athlete experience. Blazer Boosters members assist in generating revenues for three main purposes. The first is to offset annual student-athlete scholarship costs. The second is to secure financial resources for capital projects such as new athletic facilities or renovations to existing athletic facilities. The third is to enhance a specific sport's operating budget.
How do I obtain priority seating for men's basketball?
Blazer Boosters members have the opportunity to purchase priority seating at Legion Field or Bartow Arena. Priority seating requires an annual Blazer Club per-seat donation in order to purchase season tickets. The per-seat donation must be paid annually in addition to the season ticket cost in order to retain seats. Please review the minimum per-seat donation requirements in the Blazer Boosters membership guide.
Is my contribution tax deductible?
UAB Athletics recommends that donors check with their tax advisor. Generally speaking, if a donor's gift is related to priority seating, 80% of the contribution is tax deductible less any additional benefits received.
