You won’t want to miss your chance to see UAB Football back on Legion Field this Saturday. This Spring Game will be the highlight of your weekend.
Alabama loves football. But it’s a rough sport. You probably know someone who’s been injured in the game. Recently, football has come under fire for the inherent risks, which include the lifelong effects of repeated head injuries, such as concussions.

This video highlights the immense pride and spirit our city has for this team. Thanks, UAB Football for reminding Birmingham what it’ll be like to have their team back.
