“Over there its so quiet. Over here its a riot! Walking along, singing our song, walking in a Legion Wonderland.”
Magic City Brigade singing “Legion Wonderland” to the Atlanta United supporters group which brought several hundred fans to the game.
This past Saturday, an overflowing sold out BBVA Field record crowd of 6,722 – sang and cheered on their Birmingham Legion FC against MLS powerhouse Atlanta United FC in a preseason exhibition.
As a proud member of the Magic City Brigade, the Club’s supporters group, I happily volunteered to capture the sights and sounds of the big game for Bham Now (also got some photos and videos from fellow Brigade members and the Legion).
As you can see -we had a little fun. Check it out.

Don’t miss the 2020 season
Along with the fan friendly atmosphere, the Legion played well against the top division Atlanta United, losing 3-2 on a goal scored in the 93rd minute.
Beginning their 2nd year, Legion FC is off to a great start. As one Magic City Brigade superfan declared…
“The Birmingham Legion has arrived!”
Season and individual tickets for the 2020 season are still available.
