New turf put in at Legion Field


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The home of UAB Athletics now has new renovations Tuesday to their field.

A new turf layout was put in the stadium as part of the city of Birmingham’s approved bid of $714,000 bid to replace the field.

A new stadium is in the works, but UAB football and other sporting events will need a home in the meantime.

The turf was put in with the help of FieldTurf USA Inc.

The Magic City Classic between Alabama State and Alabama A&M will also be played this season at Legion FIeld.
