Birmingham City: Club Profile
Our only proper match against Birmingham City up until summer 2020 was our home 1997 FA Cup Third Round tie… at their place. The reason? Well, back then, it wasn’t unusual for non-league sides to switch home ties against bigger clubs for the sake of safety reasons. We think the experience of giving up proper home advantage is a big reason why we made sure our 1998 match against Newcastle didn’t get switched.

Birmingham City Travel Information – Distance: 98 miles
You want the M1 and M6, which is no great shock. When you arrive at the interchange for the M6 Toll, however, stay on the old M6 for Birmingham. You’re coming off the motorway at Spaghetti Junction for the A38(M) for the centre of Birmingham itself.
At the end of this motorway, take the ramp for the A4540 towards the NIA among others; taking the first exit at the roundabout for the A5127. After another 1.5 miles, take the first exit at a large roundabout called Bordesley Circus onto Cattell Road (B4128).
There are four car parks in and around St Andrews – but we don’t know which of these, if any, are available to away fans. The club offers a map to show where these are – but not who can use them or how much it’ll cost you. The Football Ground Guide is a bit clearer on this. But the news isn’t necessarily good.
Services to: BIRMINGHAM MOOR STREET (for BIRMINGHAM NEW STREET)
Bordesley is the nearest station at around half-a-mile from St Andrews. The Blues state that services only operate to this station on a home matchday, which – to be fair – is the answer you are hoping for. Moor Street, however, is 1.4 miles away.
If arriving at Bordesley, leave the station on Bedford Road in a northbound direction. Go right onto Coventry Road at the end and over the main roundabout in front of you. Next, you’ll need to head straight up Cattell Road.
