For true football fans, the time immediately following the Super Bowl has always felt rather empty. Knowing that it will be long months before you see any more real action on the gridiron can be a downer. That was all before the Birmingham Iron came onto the scene. Now in its inaugural season, the Iron is satisfying football fans and gaining ground as a team to watch while NFL and college leagues take a breather. Make sure to get tickets for a Birmingham Iron game so you can say you saw them way back when.
As one of eight teams that make up the Alliance of American Football, the Birmingham Iron is already gaining plenty of buzz. The Alliance brings together teams composed of talented athletes in this spring league that aims to carve a niche for itself in what has until now been the off-season.
American Alliance Teams
The Birmingham Iron is the one we’ve got our eye on, of course, but there are seven others in the league: The Arizona Hotshots, the Memphis Express, the Orlando Apollos, the Salt Lake Stallions, the San Antonio Commanders, and the San Diego Fleet have all claimed their rightful spot. You might even seen some familiar names on the rosters – Alliance teams have players from Auburn, Alabama, and other teams we know well around these parts.
