During the 1996 Summer Olympics, Birmingham's Legion Field hosted nine men's and women's soccer matches.  UAB provided practice space for several of the teams playing in the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games, including the US men's team.

Earlier this year, UAB was announced as a host for the forthcoming World Games, to be held in Birmingham in July 2022.  Visiting athletes, coaches, and officials will be housed in UAB residence halls and four athletic competitions (lacrosse, tug-of-war, racquetball, and squash) will be hosted in venues on the UAB campus.  UAB Medicine will also be the official sponsor of medical services for the World Games.
