Birmingham Phoenix’s men’s and women’s teams will be back in action at Edgbaston for unmissable home fixtures from next week, as cricket’s most fast-paced competition returns to excite crowds with another year full of world-class sport and live entertainment for the whole family.
The thrilling home action begins with a standalone men’s fixture on Wednesday 10 August, when the team take on reigning champions Southern Brave at 6:30pm. Fans can also expect a live performance from Birmingham-born, BBC Introducing musician Leadley, who will be singing her hits for the crowd pre-match.
Returning with a bang, Birmingham Phoenix women’s team will be joining forces with the men’s fixtures from Monday 15 August, when the fixtures will return to the popular double-header format, with both men’s and women’s teams playing on the same day – with tickets enabling fans to enjoy both matches. The women’s side will face Trent Rockets at 3pm, before the men’s team take on the team later in the evening.
Fans of all ages can also enjoy another two double header fixtures at Edgbaston on Friday 19 August and Sunday 28 August, where both sides will play Northern Superchargers and Manchester Originals.
Birmingham Phoenix’s men’s team will be captained by Moeen Ali with Sophie Devine skippering the women’s team, who are both all-rounders.
What’s more, supporters can enjoy up-beat live performances from some of the most exciting names on the UK music scene, as part of a collaboration with BBC Music Introducing. DJ 2NV, Birmingham Phoenix’s resident DJ, will provide entertainment at every Edgbaston fixture, with Leadley performing on Wednesday 10th August, and Birmingham-raised Kofi Stone bringing high energy entertainment on Monday 15th August.
