As we get closer to an official announcement of the USFL playing at Protective Stadium. There are still agreements being finalized to make this all happen.
“The Jefferson County Commission on Thursday will consider a resolution that offers funding to the USFL through an agreement with the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center Authority (BJCC).”
Under this resolution Jefferson County will chip in money to the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center Authority (BJCC) to help cover the cost they are using to bring the USFL to Birmingham.
“Under the agreement, if approved, Jefferson County will pay an amount not to exceed $500,000 to the BJCC as reimbursement for a portion of its uncovered costs associated with allowing the USFL to use the stadium at no cost for the USFL’s 2022 season.”
All sides understand the economic impact of bringing a full fledge football league with a national broadcast package to their region.
“Having the USFL play at Protective Stadium could result in an estimated $15 million economic impact throughout the city and region.”
The USFL is expected to hit the field on Friday, April 15th, 2022. Stay tuned to XFL News Hub for all your USFL news.
