here's a link to the PDF presentation: https://uabsports.com/documents/2019...ion_091819.pdf

basically what we saw last week, but some additional images released as well.

i, for one, am relatively satisfied. $174 million was not a lot to work with.

pics from al.com:


I'm pretty satisfied. As I said in the Southeast forum, it's practically a stadium in a park. No fields of concrete between it and the streets. Plus, it looks like there is ample room to permenantly expand if it ever became warranted. It might become the northern equivalent of Railroad Park / Regions Field. If so, we should expect some great things in the future on the northside.

I'm curious to see if Legion FC will relocate to Protective Stadium once it's built. I don't know what attendance is like at BBVA Field, but it seems like the lower bowl would offer the perfect capacity for some of the more high-profile matches.
