Ticket holders can relax and take the weight off, as shuttle-buses will be ready and waiting to collect you from Birmingham New Street station at 5pm, delivering you to the doors of the ground, where you can load up on the beers and soak up some energising entertainment by 7pm, for the match start. There is no doubt this event will make for the perfect outing if it’s a few bevs with colleagues, you fancy, or a much needed catch-up with pals to conclude the working week. Tell all your mates and get them down for this unapologetic, immense spectacle.
