The world famous British Army parachute display team are coming to Edgbaston

The 2018 Vitality Blast season is set for an even grander opening at Edgbaston later this summer, with the world renowned Red Devils parachute display team landing inside the stadium to deliver the match ball for the Birmingham Bears opening home game.

The Birmingham Bears open their home campaign against Yorkshire Vikings at Edgbaston on Sunday 8 July, with the Red Devils landing on the outfield at 2.00pm before the game starts at 2.30pm.

This truly is a treat for spectators as not only is it one of the only opportunities to catch them this summer in the West Midlands but also it’s included in the match day price.

What’s more, there will also be live music, free face painting and an Army climbing wall available for supporters at the Vikings game, whilst the club has also announced that its free Bears Kids Zone is returning for all Vitality Blast North Group fixtures at Edgbaston in 2018, with a range of giant inflatables and games available for young supporters to try for free.

Emma Windsor, marketing manager at Warwickshire CCC, said: “We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make our Blast games the perfect family day out, bringing in the Bears Kids Zone and much more off-field entertainment for young supporters, but also extending the opportunity to meet the players for autographs and selfies after the game. Our supporters were also treated to some fantastic performances from the Bears on their journey to the final.

“In addition to the bringing back the Bears Kids Zone to all games in 2018, we wanted to do something extra special for the first of our seven games at Edgbaston.

“A Red Devils display is a great spectacle, and the team has landed at Edgbaston twice before on Community Day. However, this will be the first time that we’ve welcomed the team at a Birmingham Bears home game, and we can’t wait to welcome them back on 8 July.”

Under 16s go completely free to all seven Birmingham Bears home games in the Vitality Blast, whilst adult tickets are currently priced at just £15 during the currently Early Bird Window, which ends soon!
