The Tragic City Rollers is a roller derby league based in Birmingham, Alabama. Founded in 2005, the league consists of two teams, and two mixed teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in December 2005[1] by Dixie Thrash,[2] after hearing about the Texas Rollergirls, and training with the Dixie Derby Girls for two months. The league's first bout was also against Dixie, in April 2006.[3]

Tragic City was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in October 2010,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[5]
