• The deal to allow the USFL to user LegionField is done.



  • BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The goal to bring the United States Football League to Birmingham for 2022 is another step closer to reality after a vote from the city council Tuesday. City leaders approved a resolution to allow the city and Birmingham Park and Recreation Board to execute an agreement with the USFL league to provide services to the USFL that do not exceed $500,000.

    Under the agreement, the city would allow the league to use Legion Field, personnel, police, fire, and rescue for the new league.
