Alabama announced its annual A-Day spring football game will kick off at 1 p.m. April 19 and be televised by ESPNU.

The annual A-Day Game is the 15th and final practice of the spring. Admission will free.

According to a news release from the school, Alabama leads the nation in spring game attendance during the last seven years with 594,851 fans and an average of 84,978 fans a game during that period. The largest A-Day crowd in school history came in 2011 (92,310). In coach Nick Saban's first year of 2007, the stadium was at full capacity before expansion (92,138).

One of the ESPN outlets has carried A-Day live to a national audience in five of the last six years.
