IT S MORE THAN JUST A GAME
Birmingham s four distinct seasons and beautiful facilities provide the backdrop for a range of competitions such as NCAA championships, SEC, SIAC, SWAC, and Gulf South Conference championships, NASCAR and Indy Racing, the Davis Cup, the Bassmaster Classic and the Regions Tradition golf tournament. And with more than 3.4 million people living within 100 miles, our population packs the house for some of the South s best sporting events.
Home to the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and headquarters
of the Southeastern Conference and Southwestern Athletic Conference, Birmingham has long been a hub of all things athletic. Add to that the convenience of an international airport and the entertainment options that fill Alabama s largest city, and it s no wonder why Birmingham is fast becoming one of the nation s favorite spots to play.
