Before you read on, here are some key things to be aware of before arriving at the ground on a matchday, to make entry into the ground as smooth as possible.

Firstly, make sure you have the latest version of the app. One way to make sure you have the latest version is to uninstall and reinstall it. Secondly, have your tickets ready in the app: you can view our video guides to accessing and sharing tickets here. Make sure you are logged in to the app before you arrive at the ground. If you’re logged in and you’ve downloaded your tickets in advance, they will appear in the app without needing mobile or wifi connectivity.

Finally, get to the ground as early as you can. Bag checks are in operation so there may be queues at the gate. Have your tickets open in the app before you approach the gate.

Welcome to the venue information page for Edgbaston, home of Birmingham Phoenix.

Here you can find all the information you need ahead of your matchday, including gate opening times, food & drink, travel options, accessibility provision and on-site facilities.
