Want a chance to take in an Alabama Crimson Tide home football and meet coach Nick Saban this season? ESPN is offering that experience to anyone over age 25 — for a price.
As part of the network’s ESPY Day Auction that runs through July 13, ESPN is auctioning off that experience, with the current bid at $2,700. The winner gets VIP tickets for two to the game, behind-the-scenes tours of the school’s football building and Bryant-Denny Stadium, and several other perks. The meeting with Saban will come prior to kickoff.
Should the winning bid be $15,000 or higher, hotel accommodations and airfare are provided to those living 250 miles or farther from Tuscaloosa. We would be stunned if the winner chose a game other than the Iron Bowl, set for Nov. 26.
Bidding started at $2,500 and closes next Wednesday, so it will be interesting to see how high the price goes. All proceeds go to The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
