Birmingham City: Ground Guide

Birmingham City: Ground Guide

We take a look at St Andrews.

St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium is a fairly modernised stadium with three of the stands being recently renovated. The main stand is the oldest stand in the ground and was opened in 1953. This stand is known as the Garrison Lane Stand.


Capacity

The grounds official capacity is 29,409 and is the 10th biggest stadium in the Championship. Birmingham’s record attendance was against Everton in the FA Cup 5th Round in 1939. 66,844 fans were in attendance. However, their modern all seated attendance records stands at 29,588 when they played Arsenal in the Premier League in 2003.


Away End

The away end which is known as the Gil Merrick Stand usually holds 3,000 fans. The away end is the lower tier of this stand and offers good views. There are no restricted views in place for travelling fans.


Travel

If travelling by train to Birmingham New Street Station it is a 25 minute walk to the ground. If you opt to get a taxi it will cost approximately £9. Alternatively, you can walk to Moor Street Station, which is a 10 minute walk and catch a train to Bordesley which is the nearest station to the ground, 5-10 minutes away. For fans travelling by car, there are no designated car parks for away fans. The best option is to find suitable street parking near the ground.
