Birmingham’s Lakeshore Foundation announced Tuesday that it has been selected as an expansion team in the new USA Wheelchair Football League (USAWFL).

The Birmingham Hammers will play wheelchair football, a full-contact sport played by both men and women with a permanent disability.

While wheelchair football has been played for more than 20 years across the country, a new, organized form of the game began under the direction of the USAWFL in 2020. The league was established through a Salute to Service Grant from the National Football League (NFL) and the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
