99 Neighborhoods, Supporting as 1
That’s the rallying cry of the Elyton Ultras and our driving purpose inside and outside the stadium. Established in 2022, the Elyton Ultras were the first independent grassroots supporters group created specifically for Birmingham Legion FC. The group was established by Legion supporters who were there from Day 1 who wanted a space to allow supporters to be loud, rowdy, and energetic for all 90 minutes in their support for Birmingham Legion FC.
For our Prideraiser we chose another small grassroots-led organization, The Magic City Acceptance Center! The MCAC was established in the Spring of 2014 as a program of Birmingham Aids Outreach, a 501c3.
Their vision is to create a brave and radically inclusive space for the LGBTQ community in Alabama through outreach, training, and direct services,.
The MCAC relies heavily on the community in order to provide free programs for LGBTQ children, youth, adults, and family members! Through these direct services they have served 1535 unique LGBTQ Youth, ages 13-24, have logged 340 LGBTQ Cultural Humility Training hours, and have 45 Alabama counties represented in Online programs this year so far!
