Skyline – situated at the height of the South Stand – will offer spectacular panoramic views of the pitch and Birmingham landscape, whilst delivering an unrivalled hospitality package.
The major refurbishment includes high-end hospitality and banqueting, private inclusive bar, reception areas, live music and DJ, plus superior seating in a partially-covered, contemporary roof-top setting.
Edgbaston is working on Skyline in partnership with Stadia by GL Events, Arcadis and wooarchitects, who devised concepts for areas at Wembley, Twickenham and the London Stadium.
Skyline is set for completion in the coming weeks with packages now on sale for a host of Major Match days in 2023, including the Men’s Ashes Test, Men’s IT20 against New Zealand and Vitality Blast Finals Day.
Chief Operating Officer Craig Flindall said the Skyline is set to be one of the most unique spaces in the world to enjoy a cricket match.
He added: “The Skyline will be a stunning viewing deck, offering an unrivalled spectator experience, that will be the envy of cricket enthusiasts around the world.
“It’s a contemporary, vibrant space that transforms the existing seating area to a stunning high-spec fit-out, offering a first-rate experience for spectators.
“The development is part of our wider Masterplan to further invest in our facilities at Edgbaston and create more multi-purpose, versatile spaces. The Skyline does that by giving us the opportunity to not only introduce a new hospitality facility but expand our conference and events capabilities to host more summer parties and outdoor events.
Craig Flindall, Chief Operating Officer
“The environment will be relaxed and informal, where there are not only exceptional pitch views but where the food is plentiful, and the atmosphere fun and lively.”
