8 reviews of Birmingham City Football Club in English
A great atmosphere when it is full, St Andrews is the place to see the true football club of the city of Birmingham. The old place has changed over the past few years for the better but it is still dated in some aspects.
Most of the ground has been rebuilt over the last 10 years or so:
One large single tiered stand, incorporating the Tilton Road End & Spion Kop, completely surrounds half the pitch and has replaced a former huge terrace. At the back of the Spion Kop Stand, which runs along one side of the pitch, are a row of executive boxes, as well as a central seated executive area which also incorporates the Directors 'box’. The other new stand, the Railway End was opened in February 1999. It is a large two tiered stand, unusual in having quite a small top tier, called 'The Olympic Gallery’, which overhangs the lower tier. Again there is a row of executive boxes in this stand, housed at the back of the lower tier. Only one 'old’ stand (it was built in 1952), the Main Stand, now remains of the former St Andrews. This is a two tier stand running along one side of the pitch, with a row of executive boxes across its middle.
There had been talk of a move to a new stadium but I reckon new builds lack the atmosphere and are soul less compared to old stadiums. Lets hope we can get back to the Premier League whatever happens!
I love coming to watch matches at this stadium. The stadium has such a great atmosphere and the stadium itself is very nice and kept clean. There is plenty of parking around it and admissions are very competitive too. I have seen many a good match up here!
I used to go to watch matches with my dad pretty much every week for a few years when I was younger and we sat in the family stand or the tilton stand. The atmosphere was always a good one and I never felt out of place sitting there not really understanding the game but just enjoying spending some time with my dad. Since then I have visited about a year ago for a stadium tour with my dad and nephew. It was interesting to see around the stadium, the police cells at the side!, the dressing room with showers and massage tables, the executive seats and the offices. Well worth a visit for all blue noses!
Nirvana,the cathederal on the hill.the home of the worlds greatest football team(who needs trophies),hallowed ground,all non believers-”ye who enter abandon all hope”,The place where the people of Birmingham go to watch their football.Why does this scale only go up to five stars!!!
St. Andrews Stadium is home to Birmingham City FC, who've recently been promoted to the Barclaycard Premiership.
From a neutral perspective, perhaps a visiting tourist of a non-supporter, your always guarenteed to taste the true English football atmosphere here, with a loud crowd in a tightly packed stadium, with the capacity of only 30,009.
I'd reccomend walking from the city centre, just a brisk 10 min walk away (well signposted, follow the fans!), as driving is a nightmare- if you have to, there are several car parksin the immediate area that'll want £5 for parking off you.
Be warned, a lot of local pubs are for home support only, if you are a travelling fan its no a good idea!- Stick to the city centre pubs, or on Birmingham Broad Street, where there is plenty of choice.
All in all its a great days experience, yu can find tickets/fixtures at www.bcfc.com
