The Birmingham Bowl is a great opportunity to showcase our city and everything Birmingham has to offer. This video will be airing on ESPN around the country during the game today! #BirminghamBowl
An uplifting commercial, the video, which is narrated by Mayor Woodfin promotes Birmingham as “blazing a progressive trail, from our history fighting for civil rights to our future in social justice. Where people from all walks of life have a seat at the table. Birmingham is putting people first.”
Woodfin concludes the commercial with the invitation – “Come join us!”
On average, between one to two million people have been tuning into 2017’s College Football bowl games.
