REDDITCH United have confirmed that Birmingham United will play their home matches at the Reds’ Trico Stadium ground next season.
The Reds and Birmingham have reached a groundshare agreement for the 2023/24 campaign with Redditch plying their trade at step three and Birmingham at step seven of the Non-League pyramid.
Birmingham play in the Midland Football League Division Two and Reds chairman David Faulkner is delighted to welcome the step seven club to the Trico.
Faulkner said: “We are very pleased to have Birmingham United join us here in Redditch.
“It’s been a shame that our fantastic facilities have not been utilised every other Saturday afternoon when our men’s first team are away.
“Over the past 12 months, we have been able to again invest in the stadium adding a new PA system and installing energy efficient LED floodlights for the pitch.
“The more people we can have utilising our amazing ground the better.
“I’m absolutely sure non-league football in Redditch will continue to thrive and we will continue to invest heavily in Redditch United to ensure the future of our club whilst benefiting the local community.”
Birmingham United chairman, Rajab Noor, added: “We are delighted to secure this fantastic facility.
“We’re very excited to be playing on 4G next season and to grow our relationship with David Faulkner and Redditch United.
“As a club and committee, we want to say a big thank you to Redditch United for allowing us to groundshare for the 23/24 season.
“It has only been nine months since we completely took over the club, it’s a big step in the right direction for Birmingham United and shows the ambitions we have for the club.”
