About Coventry Stadium

Since officially opening in 2005, Coventry Stadium and Arena has become a world-class destination in Coventry. The Stadium can accommodate more than 32,500 spectators, with the capacity rising to 40,000 for music events, and is also home to Premiership Rugby Team Wasps and Coventry City FC.

It has witnessed some unforgettable sporting moments – from Coventry-born Andy Goode setting an Aviva Premiership Rugby record, with the most points scored in a single match – to Wasps recording their biggest ever win in the Champions Cup. Its record attendance to a sporting event was in 2015 with 32,019 Wasps and Leicester Tigers fans showing their support in the local derby. It is one of the country's leading conference and exhibition destinations, having won numerous national awards.

Arrive Early: Coventry Stadium opens 2 hours before the session start time.

Accessibility: Externally there are some changes in level with ramped access round the building. Internally the venue has step free access and will have a range of existing accessible facilities and temporary facilities such as a changing places toilet.

Accessible Golf Buggy: To help improve access across the site, an internal Accessible Golf Buggy Service will be running.

 

What to expect

Rugby Sevens is seven-a-side rugby played at lightning speed on a full-size rugby pitch.

It’s bone-crunching hits, silky ball skills, elusive running and dynamic teamwork packed into two thrilling halves of seven minutes.

With more room to roam and less time for play, the result is a version of the game of rugby that is shorter, faster and high scoring. On average, a try is scored every 70 seconds.

Some of the world’s leading Rugby Sevens teams will compete at Birmingham 2022. There are sixteen teams in the men’s competition and eight teams in the women’s competition.

In addition to the sport there will be plenty to see and do at the Coventry Stadium. You can ‘Have a go’ at Rugby and maybe even meet an athlete or Perry the Bull, Birmingham 2022’s official mascot.
