Go Green Game

In 2023, Edgbaston hosted its Go Green Game – our first ever sustainable international match.

For the IT20 against New Zealand on Sunday 3 September, the stadium used the fixture to underlined its green credentials during the previous 12 months. The Club had reduced waste by a third, running kitchens on 80 per cent locally sourced produce, rolling out a low-energy LED light project, and continued use of e-cups that’s prevented 562,000 plastic alternatives being wasted.

Initiatives deployed for the Kiwis’ visit further drove down emissions and the match’s carbon footprint, whilst also raising sustainability awareness amongst fans and the wider community.

We want to raise awareness amongst staff, spectators and our community of the influence the sporting and event industry can have on sustainability and climate change.
