Legacy Credit Union Featured on Monopoly: Birmingham Edition Board

On Wednesday, March 20, Hasbro announced the new Birmingham Edition of the Monopoly board game at Vulcan Park & Museum. The Birmingham board includes customized Community Chest and Chance playing cards, legendary Magic City landmarks, and even features Legacy Credit Union on many of the board pieces.


As local businesses were being selected, Legacy was chosen as the exclusive financial institution to be featured on the Monopoly board. As you’re rolling the dice, you’ll notice the Legacy all throughout the game. One of the first tax squares says “Pay Your Legacy Credit Union Auto Loan.” In addition to this tax square, Legacy is printed on the monopoly money. The sights of Birmingham will feature notable landmarks like the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Sloss Furnaces, Vulcan Park & Museum, and Legacy Arena. Also included are local businesses such as Pepper Lace Market and the Alabama Peanut Company. 


“In 2023, Top Trumps and the Monopoly team approached us and asked if we would have any interest in contributing to the Birmingham Edition board,” said Leia Ragland, AVP of Marketing and Business Development. “After meeting their team and learning about the project and its significance, we knew it would be a perfect fit for Legacy.” When asked how do you believe Legacy’s inclusion in the game benefits the community and enhances the game experience, Ragland said “it reinforces that we are Birmingham’s credit union and that we are committed to the growth and expansion of our community.” She continued saying “The individuals who live, work, or worship in the Greater Birmingham Community are our top priority. There are hundreds of options out there today for all of your banking needs, but few financial institutions are committed to investing back into Birmingham like Legacy does.”


“Legacy has worked hard to contribute to the growth of our community and to bring value to the members we serve,” said S. Glenn Bryan, Legacy’s President and CEO. “Being selected as a part of the Monopoly Birmingham Edition alongside so many iconic organizations serves to validate the relevance of our mission to Craft Financial Solutions for the Metro area.”


MONOPOLY: Birmingham Edition will be available in stores and online at retail partners, including Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Kulture City, Greater Birmingham Humane Society, Sidewalk Film Center, Birmingham Museum of Art, Memory Lane, At Home Furnishings, Golden Rule BBQ & Grill, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Sloss Furnaces, Bromberg’s, Protective Life Insurance, and Smith’s Variety.


MONOPOLY: Birmingham Edition, the game officials say, is the first city in Alabama with an authorized, Hasbro-approved Monopoly community edition.


To celebrate Legacy’s inclusion in the game, each Legacy employee received their own official copy of Monopoly: Birmingham Edition during our Legacy Week celebration. It was a full circle moment to be able to celebrate Legacy’s dedication to the Birmingham community, and the employees who make it all possible. Without them, Legacy would not be the financial fixture it is.
