City officials say Birmingham is becoming ‘sports tourism destination’

 Monday, March 13, 2023 


City officials are calling Birmingham a sports destination.

This week, the city will host the first and second round of the NCAA Tournament for Division 1 Men’s basketball.

These games are only a few of the many sports events being held in the area.

David Galbaugh, the Vice President of Sports Sales and Marketing at the Greater Birmingham Convention and Visitors Bureau, says it’s no surprise Birmingham is becoming a sports tourism destination.

He says the Magic City is chosen for all these events because of the location, the updated facilities, and the people.

Galbaugh says these sporting events bring thousands of visitors each year, promoting the city while providing a huge economic impact for all of its businesses.
