Edgbaston to undergo £30M refurb

A £30M transformation of Warwickshire County Cricket Club’s Edgbaston ground will see the construction of a new stand to increase capacity to 25,000.

The club, which relies on its Test Match status to maintain revenues, says the redevelopment will be complete next summer.

A 500-guest banqueting suite and new members’ areas will be built and a completely new pavilion area for players, the media and officials, will feature state-of-the-art facilities.

“With competition for Test Matches increasing in England, Edgbaston has to maintain its position as one of the principal venues in the country,” said WCCC chief executive Colin Povey

“The redevelopment of the ground will secure Test Match status and provide a wealth of new facilities for the club and its members.”

An eleventh-hour bid by residents to have the plans quashed was rejected earlier this year paving the way for the redevelopment to go ahead.
