The BIG local derby is back this Friday!

Birmingham Bears will welcome local rival Worcestershire Rapids to Edgbaston on Friday 23 August, 7pm.

The Vitality Blast match is the biggest of the summer in Birmingham and a big crowd is expected to cheer on the Bears.

Gates open from 5pm, so why not join us straight from work with friends or colleagues. The night starts with our Bears Beer Festival, in association with Marston’s Brewery, which returns for a fourth year. Try a wide variety of beer, ales and ciders with 46 different options, including our very own Birmingham Bears Beer.

Your night will also feature Live Music pre and post match. It sets to be a night to remember and not one to be missed.

You can secure tickets at the best price by purchasing before the day of the match, with adult tickets only £19 (£25 on the day). There are also no booking fees.

Under 16s will once again go FREE to all group games in 2019. Please note, all under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

All our Twenty20 matchdays will take place during the summer school holidays, with three on Sunday afternoons – perfect for kids and families – and three on Friday nights. There’s something for everyone this summer.

As well as the fast Twenty20 action on the field, there will be plenty to do around the ground with family entertainment, live music, giveaways and more… your matchday ticket gives you so much more.

Tickets are on sale now at, over the phone by calling 0121 369 1994 (option 1) or in person at Edgbaston Stadium.
