“Finley Center Celebration”


The Hoover City Council is seen here with Mrs. Diane Finley, wife of Coach Bob Finley, at the grand opening and ribbon cutting of the new Finley Center named after the longtime head coach at Hoover’s W. A. Berry High School. The council presented Mrs. Finley with a proclamation honoring Coach Finley who “taught his students as much about integrity as he did football and basketball.”  The 155,000 square foot indoor events center includes 11 regulation size basketball courts, 17 regulation size volleyball courts, walking track, meeting and banquet space, trade show space and more. The Greater Birmingham Convention and Visitors Bureau has estimated this facility will bring an economic impact for the City of Hoover of between $27 million and $33 million yearly.
