BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — We are getting a first look at a new master plan for downtown Birmingham. It includes a new open-air football stadium that would host UAB football games and bowl games, like the Magic City Classic.

The stadium will be built just north of the new Uptown district.

Construction of the stadium is estimated to cost $174 million.
