The Birmingham Legion announce they will form a women's team to join the United Soccer League's W League. The team will compete in the upcoming 2023 season this May.

The USL W League is a "pre-professional" circuit intended to provide a new pathway for local, elite female players between college and professional soccer. The league just completed its inaugural season and anticipates having 65 teams across 23 states this summer.

The Legion will be partnering with Birmingham United Soccer Association/Alabama Football Club to identify and develop female players. "We are excited to partner with Legion FC with the USL W League launch in Birmingham. Weíre excited about the opportunity to continue to provide extraordinary women exceptional pathways for continued growth and development," said BUSA/Alabama FC Executive Director Andrew Brower.

The new team's name, logo, and schedule will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
