Birmingham Sport Thread

It seems strange we dont have one, considering we are a "European city of sport". So much go's on in and around the city it'll be nice to keep up to date :)

Some good news for Perv's and Tennis fans

Sharapova to return to Birmingham


Sharapova also won the Birmingham doubles title in 2004

Maria Sharapova has confirmed she will aim for a hat-trick of titles at the DFS Classic in Birmingham next week.

The 19-year-old will warm-up for Wimbledon at the event, which begins on Saturday, where she won back-to-back titles in 2004 and 2005.

The Russian joins a strong field that includes Daniela Hantuchova, Sania Mirza and veteran Martina Navratilova.

Sharapova won her first grass-court title in Birmingham in 2004 and then went on to capture the Wimbledon crown.

"I know Maria is excited to be defending her title and it will no doubt help her preparation for Wimbledon this year," said tournament director Marjory Howie.

"We have an excellent field of players entered this year and I'm sure the title will be hotly contested."

Sharapova has failed to reach a Grand Slam final since her triumph at the All England Club.

The world number four reached the last four at this year's Australian Open but has since struggled with a right ankle injury and was knocked out of the French Open in the fourth round.

Brum's World Cup fan-tasia Jun 6 2006
By Lisa Smith, Birmingham Mail



ENGLAND expects a brilliant World Cup and football fans in Birmingham are assured of a great one with the biggest celebration outside Germany opening in this city in 48 hours.

The T-Mobile Fan Park, at Millennium Point, will be showing every one of the 57 World Cup games live on a screen which is claimed to be the biggest in Europe.

Live pop acts, including Duncan James from Blue and Tony Christie, will precede the games and the event will also run in tandem with Birmingham's first ever international beach soccer tournament.

Head of sponsorship at T-Mobile Toby Hefter said hosting the fan park in conjunction with Birmingham City Council was the only way to bring World Cup football to those not lucky enough to have a ticket for the final in Germany.

He said: "There are hundreds of thousands of people into football who cannot go to the World Cup. T-Mobile's goal is to bring the football to them.



"We want people to get close to the World Cup action and have as good a time. We have a great relationship with the big Midlands sides and wants fans here to enjoy a real family feast of football."


The Fan Park, in Curzon Street, officially opens to the public on Friday when fans will have the chance to see Villa, Blues and Albion legends in action on the beach soccer pitch.


An opening party will then be held as Germany kick off the tournament with their match against Costa Rica at 5pm.


Fans can attend matches for free, but admission to England games is £2.50 per person or £10 for a family of five bookable in advance.


As well as inviting schools and adults to play in a mini-league tournament, T-Mobile is looking for Samba and steel bands and an England band to accompany the match celebrations. Anyone interested should contact organisers at the Fan Park.
