Morgan Copes, VP of USL Birmingham
Morgan Copes moved to Birmingham in 2012 with a job at Regions and a love for soccer. After a few years and a conversation over a beer at a local brewery, he dreamed of bringing professional soccer to the Magic City.
The people of Birmingham immediately gathered around Copes and the Birmingham Hammers was born. With the goal of attracting a professional team, the Hammers played an exhibition season and jumped into a league around 2015.
And just about two months ago Copes got to announce that his dream is becoming a reality-a United Soccer League franchise is coming to the ‘ham.
