One of the main venues for the Commonwealth Games, the Alexander Stadium will stage the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
Athletes will also compete in track and field events from August 2 to 7 at the venue which has been transformed ahead of the Games.
With the new West Stand in place, the stadium will be able to hold 18,000 spectators in its permanent configuration, while additional temporary stands will increase the capacity to 30,000 for the Games.
First opened in 1976, the facility became the home of UK Athletics in 2011 following a refurbishment which saw the creation of the 5,000-seater East Stand on the backstraight.
Since holding its first Diamond League Meeting that year, the stadium went on to stage the British Grand Prix up until its closure for the redevelopment.
Post-Games, as well as continuing to stage major athletics events, the stadium will become a focal point for leisure and community activity within the regenerated Perry Barr district of Birmingham, which is receiving in excess of £700million investment ahead of Birmingham 2022.
