Statement from Council President Alexander regarding upcoming USFL season
Statement from Birmingham City Council President Wardine Alexander:
“With spring and summer right around the corner, Birmingham is set for an unprecedented season of activity as we welcome both the United States Football League and the 2022 World Games to our city. This goes to show just how in demand the Magic City and our venues have become to organizations looking to showcase their products to the world.
Because of this busy time, the USFL is having to relocate their final three games of the season to Canton, Ohio due to scheduling conflicts with the World Games and the local venues. We could not be more excited to be hosting these two ventures in the months to come and look forward to the 40 USFL games that will still be played in Birmingham. This is just the beginning of Birmingham becoming a major destination for sporting events and entertainment.
These next few months present a huge opportunity for us to show the nation and the world exactly what Birmingham has blossomed into in recent years. Of course, none of this could be possible without the continued efforts of our local business leaders, citizens, elected officials and media partners who all have worked tirelessly to help redefine Birmingham and tell the world what we have to offer. “
