About Alexander Stadium Redevelopment

An opportunity to see behind the scenes at the exciting new Alexander Stadium redevelopment. The upgrade will make the venue the largest facility of its kind in the UK.

The McLaughlin & Harvey team are delivering Birmingham a high-quality venue for diverse sporting, leisure, community, and cultural events. The project will see the venue’s permanent capacity increased from 12,700 to 18,000 – with the ability to temporarily increase up to a maximum of 40,000 for major events. The revamped stadium is set to host a range of tenants including the world-famous Birchfield Harriers Athletics Club and Birmingham City University. Acting as the new home for the university’s sports and exercise students, it will bring an exciting new partnership and purpose to the stadium beyond athletics.


Key features of the revamped stadium include:

A new western stand replacing the Main, Knowles and Nelson stand

New tiered seating to the north and south stands

A new 400m 6-lane warm-up track and re-laying of a new IAAF Category 1 track

Improved public realm, landscaping and parking provision

Installation of new stadium lighting and practice throwing field

A new access road from A453 Aldridge Road
