BIRMINGHAM, Ala (WIAT) — The Birmingham Legion preps for match against the Tampa Bay Rowdies. Tampa Bay is first in the East in the United Soccer League (USL) standings. Birmingham is in twelfth place.
“I feel like it’s a great test,” Legion coach Tom Soehn said. “We probably just went through our toughest test of the season and end with the toughest opponent, but I use it as a measuring stick to see how we compete against them and how we compare. So we are excited for this one.”
The Legion take on the Rowdies Saturday night at 7 p.m. at BBVA Compass Field.
