The Birmingham–Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) (formerly Birmingham–Jefferson Civic Center) is a sports, convention and entertainment complex located in Birmingham, Alabama. It consists of a 17,000 seat arena, a 3,000 seat concert hall, a 220,000 square foot exhibition hall, a 1,000 seat theater and various banquet and meeting rooms and other facilities.

The arena, which seats 17,654 for sporting events and up to 19,000 for concerts, was the home of the Birmingham Bulls of the WHA from 1976-1979. It was also the home of the basketball program of the UAB before it moved into an on-campus arena in 1988, and was also home to the Alabama Steeldogs arena football team. Although the arena stands ten stories tall, it actually measures only 75 feet from floor to ceiling.

The BJCC has hosted four Southeastern Conference men's basketball tournaments between 1979 and 1992, five Sun Belt Conference men's basketball tournaments in 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1990 and the 1999 Conference USA men's basketball tournament. It has also hosted the NCAA college basketball tournament serving as first and second round host in 1984, 1987, 2000, 2003, and 2008. The BJCC has been a regional site six times - 1982, 1985, 1988, 1995, and 1997.
