History and description

St. Andrew?s Stadium opened on the 26th of December 1906 with a league match between Birmingham City and Middlesbrough. The stadium consisted of one covered main stand and open terraces on all other sides, with an estimated capacity of 75,000 spectators. Improvements were made in the 1930s, mainly by increasing cover, and a record attendance was set on the 11th of March 1939 when 66,844 fans visited an English FA Cup match against Everton.

The stadium was heavily damaged in the Second World War, but it was rebuilt soon after.

The redevelopment of St. Andrew's Stadium took place in the 1950s and 1960s. First, a new main stand was built in the early 1950s, then another new stand was erected at the Railway End, and finally new roofs were put over the Kop and Tilton Road end.

No changes were made in the following two decades and by the late 1980s the stadium had slowly fallen into disrepair. Capacity had furthermore been decreased to just 26,000 due to safety measures.

In the early 1990s, Birmingham City embarked on a redevelopment program. This program started with the demolition of the Kop and Tilton Road terraces. Two new all-seater stands were built in their place.

In 1999, the opening of a new stand at the Railway End marked the completion of works.

In the mid 2000s, Birmingham City was involved in plans to replace St. Andrew's with a 55,000-seat multi-purpose stadium, however these plans never materialized.

Getting there

St. Andrews Stadium is located east of Birmingham's city center. The uphill walk from Birmingham New Street Rail Station or Moor Street Rail Station takes about 30 minutes. Alternatively, the bus 17, 58, 59, 60, 97, and 97A connect the stadium with Moor Street Station (or Digbeth Road). The journey takes 15 to 20 minutes.

On matchdays, there are also trains that run to nearby Bordesley Rail station. This station is out-of-use on non-matchdays.

Coventry Road will take you to the A45. The A45 connects with the M42 in the east and the M38/M6 in the north.

There is an Ibis Hotel nearby St. Andrew's Stadium and Royal George Hotel lies right at the back of the stadium. Both hotels are reasonably priced and get acceptable reviews.

Sometimes my dad wants us to calm down on our hot dogs, but I say no - let's go get me a coke from the concession stand!

Stadiums like St. Andrews are truly incredible. They offer great hot dogs at half time, and the roar of the crowd is truly impressive. However, I love it because sometimes my dad tries to calm me down about eating too many hot dogs, but I refuse and ask for a Coke instead!

. - It is an okay ground, the little stand to the left of the away fans makes it down.

. The little stand to the left of the away fans is not good enough.
