Women’s cricket T20 will make its Commonwealth Games debut at one of the world’s leading cricket venues.
Edgbaston Stadium, the home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club, regularly hosts Test, One-day International and T20 International matches.
The stadium is recognised globally as having one of the best atmospheres in cricket, an atmosphere which has helped England’s men’s side make Edgbaston a fortress. Their record there is better than at any other home ground.
The stadium's history is littered with great feats. Brian Lara scored his world record 501 not out there for Warwickshire against Durham in 1994. In 1973, the ground staged the inaugural Women’s World Cup final, in which England beat Australia.
In 2011, Edgbaston’s capacity increased to nearly 25,000 following a £32 million redevelopment. Further improvements ahead of the Commonwealth Games include the new Edgbaston Plaza at the entrance to the ground.
Arrive Early: Edgbaston Stadium opens 1.5 hours before the session start time.
Accessibility: The ground is outdoor with some cover, with accessible routes around the ground. There will be a range of existing and temporary accessible facilities at this venue such as a changing places toilet.
