BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Legion FC has announced the team will play their home games next season at Protective Stadium.

The new home to the UAB Blazers will now serve as home to the professional soccer club in the Magic City as well. Last season, Legion FC played their games at PNC Field and had made it to the United States Soccer League (USL) eastern conference semifinals this past season.

“Legion FC is excited for this defining moment in our club’s trajectory,” Legion FC President and General Manager Jay Heaps said. “Protective Stadium is a milestone addition for the city of Birmingham and is a great example of the amazing growth and potential of our city and our club.”
