The Birmingham Stallions defeated the San Antonio Brahmas 25-0 on Sunday to win the inaugural UFL Championship, marking the third straight championship for the Stallions’ franchise.

This championship was the very first in UFL history following a merger between the USFL and XFL in January. The Stallions had won their previous two championships as a member of the USFL.

Birmingham finished the 2024 regular season with a record of 9-1 as the team rattled off eight straight victories following a Week 2 loss to the Brahmas in San Antonio.

The championship game featured the most electric offense and the most stout defense in the league.

The Stallions entered the championship game after scoring a league-high average of 26.5 points per game in the regular season, while the Brahmas defense gave up a league-low average of only 15.3 points in the same timeframe.

Birmingham struck first in the game after nearly an entire half of football. The team scored a touchdown with just 40 seconds remaining in the second quarter, with the Stallions carrying an 8-0 lead into the intermission.

This lead did nothing but grow in the second half of the game, as the Stallions scored another 17 points while shutting out San Antonio in the victory.

Stallions head coach Skip Holtz credited the coaches and players around him for the successful season, saying that the franchise did a great job of bringing together a group that was able to mesh well together throughout the year.

“I think the quality, the product, the talent, the coaches … I’ve been very blessed to be around some great coaches and some great players,” he said, per UFL Fan Nation.

“They’re surrounding them around great people and great talent. We’re finding a way to win some games,” he said.

The Stallions have become one of the most dynastic teams in all of professional sports. The franchise has won three straight championships between the USFL and UFL while producing players who have gone on to help teams in the NFL.

One of the most notable players to transition from Birmingham to the NFL was Cowboys kicker Brandon Aubrey, who was one of the best kickers in the league after making 94.7% of field goal attempts with a long of 60 yards.

Despite the narrative that players in the lower league could not make or survive the NFL, Stallions general manager Zach Potter said he does not believe this is the case and that many of the players are still prepared to contribute in various ways.

“I just think it’s another roadblock; adversity that these guys are gonna have to overcome and conquer. But the way … we’re trying to do it is we’re trying to acquire talent that we believe will be difficult for other teams to acquire,” he explained, according to the UFL.

The talent mentioned by Potter helped the team complete just the third three-peat in professional football history. The Stallions join the Green Bay Packers and Edmonton Elks as the only teams to accomplish the feat.
