Ground Information

There is only one stand at Billesley, a temporary all-seater structure situated alongside the touchline. Behind one try line there are twelve hospitality boxes, but aside from that the ground is open and spectators can either stand at pitchside or perch outside the clubhouse, which at least offers easy access to the bar at half-time. A raised slope at the far end of the ground offers another perspective on the action.

 Moseley are historically the premier rugby club in Birmingham, reaching the final of the John Player Cup three times in the late 1970's and early   1980's. They originally played at the Reddings, but after attempting to keep up with the   transition to professional rugby, the club ran into financial difficulties and were forced to sell their 125 year home to property developers. An unsuccessful five-year spell based at   the University of Birmingham followed, during which time they were relegated to National Division Two.

In 2005 the club moved to its new home at Billesley Common, and was promoted to National Division One in 2006. The ground is owned by Birmingham City Council. Plans for the replacement of the temporary facilities at Billesley with permanent buildings   were first put forward in 2007.

In 2009 plans were formally submitted to Birmingham City  Council for the construction of a 5000 seater stand along the east side of the pitch, thus  allowing the capacity to increase to 7,500. Planning approval was granted in January 2010, with construction dependant on funding

 

August 2015

However, with finance for the construction of this stand proving difficult to obtain  in a difficult economic climate, an alternative plan for a more modest construction was progressed, in the form of a stand with 750 seats on the west side of the pitch. This opened in April 2015.

Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.
