Birmingham bowl 2023 military flyer
The Birmingham Bowl has been “Honoring our Heroes” since 2006 by recognizing current and former members of the United States Armed Services during our pre-game activities each year. We also work with our sponsors, teams, and conference partners to donate complimentary tickets for active military, veterans, retirees, and their families.

We are happy to be partnering with Gameday For Heroes for the 2024 Birmingham Bowl.

Gameday For Heroes’ Mission: To provide collegiate game day experiences for active-duty military and veterans. Our focus is to restore families, honor those who have put their lives on the line, and to provide a healing atmosphere for our heroes.

Heroes are given the opportunity to fellowship and forge bonds with other warriors at our pre-game tailgates and continue their experience together during a game.

Food, Fellowship, and Fun are the three pinnacles that make Gameday for Heroes so unique and special.


Complimentary Tickets: All active military, military veterans, and retirees are eligible for up to four (4) complimentary tickets by creating or logging into their Gameday for Heroes account to be notified about ticket availability. Tickets will be sent digitally the week of the game or can be picked up during the pre-game tailgate event, at Uptown.

Please note: You will need your DD214 form, NGB22 form, ID Card (VA or Retiree), a copy of your current orders, or .mil email account in-order to sign up initially.

If you are a current or former member of the US Armed Services and need additional information, please contact Bowl Chair Mike Oakley at [email protected] or 205-288-3026.
