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.
