Cool New BHam Soccer team to be announced today
http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2017/...set_f.html

The USL is one division below Major League Soccer in American soccer's four-tier division system, and has more than doubled in size since 2014. The new franchise could play at Regions Field or UAB's soccer stadium, BBVA Compass Field, before a permanent home is built.

Excellent. Hopefully they go to BBVA Compass Field. Nothing is worse than watching a soccer game in a baseball stadium.

I agree. The USL has said before they prefer soccer specific stadiums, but the article did mention the Reno team plays in the minor league baseball stadium there. I would think there would too much overlap with the Baron's schedule to make Regions Field work. In addition to their actual schedules you'd have to have time in between the soccer and baseball games to convert the stadium back and forth.

I think it would be great if the USL team locates at BBVA Compass Field and partners with UAB on funding the planned phase II upgrades of adding the other set of stands with the press box.

That has about as much chance as happening as I do becoming Supreme Glactic Ruler of Nebulon. Money will ensure that MLS doesn't have to do anything they don't want to, even up to and including pulling out of international participation

There is a possibility of playing an MLS team if the USL team makes it far enough in the Open Cup.
