The Birmingham Stallions are a professional American football team based in Birmingham, Alabama. They are one of the eight members of the United States Football League (USFL). They currently play their home games at Protective Stadium and Legion Field, both located in Birmingham. They won the new USFL's inaugural championship, defeating the Philadelphia Stars 33-30 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio, on July 3, 2022.
The Birmingham Stallions were one of eight teams that were officially announced as a USFL franchise on The Herd with Colin Cowherd on November 22, 2021
On January 6, 2022, it was revealed that former NCAA coach Gene Chizik would become the head coach of the Stallions. Chizik confirmed the report, but the parties never reached an agreement and he ultimately took a deal to become the defensive coordinator of the North Carolina Tar Heels two days later. On January 20, 2022, it was announced on The Herd with Colin Cowherd that former NCAA football head coach Skip Holtz was named the head coach and General manager of the Stallions.
Initially, each team carried a 38-man active roster and a 7-man practice squad, but the rosters were increased to 40 active players and 50 total in May, 2022.
On June 13, 2022 the Stallions started a Best Hair Award tradition following by a teammate vote. The first ever winner was J'Mar Smith.
