Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center Coliseum, Birmingham, AL

The Legacy Arena (formerly known as the BJCC Coliseum until February 1999 and the BJCC Arena until December 2014), 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 to 1979; when the WHA folded, minor league teams with the same name called the arena home through 2002. It was there in December 1977 that hockey legend Gordie Howe, then playing for the WHA's New England Whalers, scored his 1,000th career goal at the age of 49; his Whalers defeated the Bulls 6-3. It was also the home of the UAB men's basketball team before it moved into Bartow 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 (23 m) from floor to ceiling. The arena can be converted into an intimate setting, known as the Magic City Theatre. The arena serves under this name when seating capacity is less than 8,000.
