A Birmingham-based company offering reserved parking through an app may offer a window into the future of how college football and sporting events will look this year and beyond.
Clutch! is the app that will be used to buy, transfer or redeem digital parking passes at designated lots on the University of Alabama campus. The company is partnering this season with the university’s Parking and Transportation Services.
Formed in 2018, Clutch! last year offered gameday parking options for both Alabama and Auburn, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia and South Carolina.
Season passes are now on sale for the 2020 season on the Alabama campus. But what that season will look like is still an open question. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, various scenarios are being tossed around, from the season beginning in August on time, to being pushed to the spring, or not happening at all. And then there’s the question of whether any fans will be let in, or whether conditions will minimize traditional tailgating on campus.
