The new United States Football League (USFL), a Fox Sports-owned league of eight teams that will play its entire 2022 season in Birmingham, launched on Tuesday at Protective Stadium during a powerful display of regional cooperation often talked about in the metro area, but seldom realized.

Dozens of elected officials from the city, county and state were joined by corporate and civic leaders for a kickoff in the Stadium Club that included Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin; Jefferson County Commission President Jimmie Stephens; and State Senators Jabo Waggoner, R-Vestavia, and Rodger Smitherman, D-Birmingham, as well as executives from the Fox and NBC networks.
