Edgbaston nominated for award alongside the world's best venues
The £32 million redevelopment of Edgbaston Stadium's Pavilion Stand was recently honoured at the prestigious StadiumBusiness Awards in Turin after being nominated for the Project of the Year Award.
Edgbaston was nominated alongside The Wing at Silverstone, Manchester United's West Stand Boxes and the Metricon Stadium in Gold Coast, Australia, in the Project of the Year category, which recognises venues that have gone through an expansion, modernisation or major capital enhancement and have delivered on all of its project goals and more.
The redevelopment of BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, Canada - home of the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL) and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC of Major League Soccer (MLS) - took the honours following it's $563 redevelopment.
The TheStadiumBusiness Awards take place annually and run alongside the industry's StadiumBusinessSummit.
The Awards' marquee Venue of the Year was won by LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, USA.
