BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The City of Birmingham turns a new page in its sports history Tuesday night with the sign lighting for Protective Life Stadium.

Governor Kay Ivey, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin, Protective’s Rich Bielen, UAB’s Ray Watts, the BJCC’s Tad Snider, and others will take part in the lighting and celebration.

Protective Life Stadium will be the new home to the UAB Blazer football team. The $200 million multi-purpose stadium is also set to host The World Games opening and closing ceremonies in July 2022.

World Games 2022 CEO Nick Sellers released the following statement in celebration of the new stadium logo lighting:

“In less than 300 days, Protective Stadium will be home to the Opening Ceremony for The World Games 2022,” Sellers said. “It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for thousands of fans, the 3,600 competing athletes, the city of Birmingham and the state of Alabama. That’s why the entire World Games family is elated to see the new stadium signage, because we know it moves us another step closer to welcoming the world to this state-of-the-art facility in 2022.
