I have heard that there is a rule against that.

One of those gold seats would be unique memorabilia for the license holder's man cave.

As explained in the Park Board letter (that I circulated at a radio show at Full Moon, Valley), the 2,571 Stadium Certificates are each for 2 prime location seats at any and all football games played by ANY teams at Legion Field and the legal rights are perpetual. No premium or other extra charge can be legally added above face value of a ticket. There is no present provision for transferring these rights to any other game site unless a new law is passed or a state court intervenes.

I would expect that when a new stadium is built, UAB will immediately begin charging a significant premium for purchasing the best seats there just as they do now for the best seats at Bartow Arena.

SEC games are never, read never coming back. Give up on that dream

The BJCC plan includes renovating the entire complex to add additional convention space, bring the arena to NCAA tournament standards (that's something that *would* come back), and build the football stadium for less than a 75,000 seat "dome"

If you think ESPN wouldn't move the bowl game to a brand new yet smaller stadium you should delete your account, throw your computer in the river, and stop opining on this topic

Good advice regardless.

It seems that Bowl attendance is down and will continue to trend that way. Not sure the bowl would even need 55,000 seats.

I wonder if Birmingham's bowl game would move up the pecking order for selecting teams if the game was held in a new stadium.
