The University of West Alabama Department of Athletics has announced the cancellation of the Tigers’ football game vs. North Carolina Central University at Legion Field in Birmingham on October 6th. This cancellation is the result of a breach in the game contract by the Varsity Sports Marketing Group, the game’s promoter.
“We want all of the UWA and NCCU fans to know that our great universities really wanted to play this football game and we did everything possible to salvage it, but we were unable to resolve the contract difficulties with the game’s promoter” said UWA Director of Athletics E.J. Brophy.
This cancellation will result in an open date on October 6th for West Alabama, a 28-21 winner vs. Concordia College Saturday. The Tigers will return to the gridiron this Saturday on the road in their Gulf South Conference opener vs. Southern Arkansas. Gametime is slated for 6pm and can be heard live on Gospel Hits Y104.9 FM and athletics.uwa.edu.
