USA Wheelchair Football League

It’s time to meet your Birmingham Hammers Wheelchair Football team!

In 2020, thanks to generous support from the NFL-Bob Woodruff Foundation Salute to Service Partnership, Move United established the first ever USA Wheelchair Football League. Birmingham was one of nine cities added to the league as an expansion team for the 2021 season including Buffalo, Chicago, Cleveland, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Phoenix and Tampa.

While you may be familiar with wheelchair flag football, USA Wheelchair Football takes the game to the next level. This co-ed league plays with more contact, a larger field and touch tackles. Learn more about the league at www.usawfl.org.
