Birmingham City Council is seeking a contractor to revamp and expand the existing Alexander Stadium in preparation for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The Alexander Stadium, in Perry Park, will host the Games’ athletics events, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies.
Under the council plans the stadium is set for a £63M overhaul to increase its capacity from the current 12,700 to 40,000.
The contract will see the construction of a new 15,000 seater west stand, and additional seating in the north and south stands.
Works will also cover the construction and installation of the main competition and warm up tracks and field.
The stadium received a £12M expansion in 2011 that added an additional stand opposite the main stand.
Consultant Arup is already working on the designs for the revamped venue, and Mace has been brought in to act as project manager for the council.
The contract will run for three years up to 2022, with interested parties given until 7 June to submit their bids.
