Description: Alexander Stadium
One of Britain's most well known athletic stadium sits within the picturesque Perry Park in Birmingham. Although it did host football on a number of occasions, usually it served as a training venue, once also hosting an American football fixture. On a daily basis the hosts are Birchfield Harriers, one of England's most historic athletic clubs.
The stadium was initially built with a modest main grandstand in the west in 1976. That stand was later joined by two semi-curves in the south and north, altogether reaching a covered seated capacity of roughly 7,000.
The latest addition came in 2012, when a brand new east stand was opened. With clean and simple design, this part of the stadium holds 5,000 on two tiers, also offering over 3,000 m2 of floor space, including a gym and offices.
Birmingham: Business case for Alexander Stadium still to come
While the track and field stadium is a burden for taxpayers at present, the business model for its use after the Commonwealth Games is still to come. There's still no guarantee that it will be self-sustainable.
