The 2007 Alabama Steeldogs played their eighth and final season at the BJCC Arena, the second and final year under head coach Ron Selesky.

NBA legend Magic Johnson was scheduled to make an appearance during the July 28 home game, but canceled due to a conflict.

After the season the team's owner, King Myers Sports Group, began looking for an investor to take over majority ownership. Without a new owner, the team did not submit the paperwork to be part of the league for the 2008 season. The league gave the team a deadline of September 14, which it did not meet.
