THE BIRMINGHAM HAMMERS ARE overwhelmingly excited to bring such a reputable organization as Andrew Sports Medicine into the fold. Andrews Sports Medicine has become an official partner, working with the Hammers as we continue our quest to bring professional soccer to the Magic City. Andrews Sports Medicine is an internationally-recognized sports medicine clinic that has cared for some of our state's and our country's most talented athletes. We could not be happier about the level of care and expertise to which our players will have access this summer. The Hammers hope to work with Andrews Sports Medicine to be on the forefront of research regarding soccer related injuries and their prevention. The clinic's staff currently serves as team doctors for the University of Alabama, Auburn, Samford, Troy State, Tuskegee, Birmingham Southern College, Shelton State, and the Birmingham Barons, among others. The Birmingham Hammers are honored to join this list.

TODAY IT IS OUR pleasure to announce that Vestavia Hills Soccer Club has become the official youth club sponsor of the Birmingham Hammers!

TODAY THE BIRMINGHAM HAMMERS are proud to announce that there will be an actual, physical Hammers soccer team playing matches this summer! We will play as a non-league team and thus remain as yet unaffiliated with an official league. Despite this challenge we have organized a number of home and away exhibition matches to be played this summer. We remain committed to bringing professional league soccer to the Magic City and believe that we can demonstrate the support we have garnered with this exhibition season. Specific opponents and dates will be announced at the second annual Birmingham Hammers Presents: UAB vs Atlanta Silverbacks match on Friday. March 20, 2015. Please come out and support the cause! #HammerHome
