The Birmingham City Schools Kick-Off Classic (also called the Birmingham Kick-Off Classic) is an annual multi-game high school football event held at Birmingham's Legion Field at the beginning of the season.

The event was planned by Faye Oats, head of the Mayor's Office of Sports and Entertainment, and is sponsored by the City of Birmingham as a partnership with Birmingham City Schools. Each year a different Birmingham high school will serve as "home team", with a $10,000 payout for its athletic department as well as the chance to keep the proceeds from advance ticket sales. The city will claim the revenue from tickets sold at the gate.

The inaugural event, held on August 24, 2019, matched up Carver High School vs. Parker High School and Ramsay High School vs. Minor High School.
