The Birmingham Steel were a team that was scheduled to play in the World Basketball Association[2] based in Leeds, Alabama (just outside of Birmingham, Alabama). They were also a charter member of the Continental Basketball League.[3]

The Steel left the CBL for the WBA after the league lost a team in Tupelo, Mississippi.[2]

The Steel never played a single game in the 2010 WBA Exposure League. There was no official announcement but it is believed the team folded due to funding issues.
