The 2023 schedule for the reigning USFL champion Birmingham Stallions was released today.

Six of the scheduled ten games will be played at Protective Stadium, beginning on April 15th when the Stallions host the New Jersey Generals.

A  Season to Remember

Last year, the USFL’s eight teams played all 40 of their regular season games in The Magic City. The two playoff games and championship game were played in Canton, Ohio—home of the Football Hall of Fame. 

On July 3rd, the Birmingham Stallions—who had only lost one game all season—played an “instant classic” against the Philadelphia Stars, winning the USFL Championship 33 to 30.

The final 2023 home game in Birmingham will be a rematch of the title game.
