Redevelopment of Alexander Stadium

Closed 12 Jul 2019

Opened 21 Jun 2019


At the heart of the wider Perry Barr regeneration effort, Birmingham City Council plan to redevelop Alexander Stadium into a high-profile venue for diverse sporting, leisure and cultural events.

The venue at Walsall Road, Perry Barr, will be the focal point of the 2022 Commonwealth Games, hosting the Opening and Closing Ceremonies as well as the athletics competition.

A planning application will be submitted in Autumn 2019. The hybrid application will include both a detailed application for the ‘legacy stadium’ (i.e. all permanent features which will change and remain post Games) and an outline application for the additional elements required to deliver the 2022 Games.  

Looking beyond the Games, the redeveloped stadium will meet the needs and aspirations of the community for generations to come, creating a destination venue and shaping a legacy.
