Villa Stars welcome ICC Champions Trophy to Birmingham
With the start of the prestigious ICC Champions Trophy just over five weeks away, Aston Villa players Richard Dunne and Marc Albrighton welcomed the arrival of the trophy in Birmingham as it begins its promotional tour across the UK.
The ICC Champions Trophy is one of world cricket’s biggest competitions, with the top eight One Day International cricket teams participating in the 18-day tournament, which takes place at the city’s Edgbaston Stadium as well as The Oval and Cardiff Wales Stadium.
Edgbaston will host five games – including the Final – of the ICC Champions Trophy and brought the trophy along for supporters to see at an official event with Villa’s kit manufacturer Macron, at the store at Dartmouth Circus.
Tickets for matches in the ICC Champions Trophy are available at www.icc-cricket.com.
