    Going to the SA v NZ game on Wednesday - driving in from north of Brum - please can someone recommend a good place to park for free near to the ground?

    Cheers

    Ouch.

    Cannon Park (mac centre) across the road from the club shop/main entrance is about 4.50 all day.

    Not sure you can use that on match days as they close the road.

    Do they? To be fair I only use it for WCCC games... tend to use train and shuttle for int games, which I am Weds.

    Sadly... weather is not looking great!

    You won’t park anywhere near the ground for free. If you are lucky you might be able to park for £10. Have a look on yourparkingspace.co.uk there are some free parking spots around Moorcroft Road near its junction with Redding’s Rd. I always park at the church on Pershore Rd junction Raglan Rd. They charge between £5 - £10 depending on whose playing.

    Further to the last make sure your there really early at least an hour and half before if you want to park at the church. So you are aware there is also a tennis tournament on at the Priory so you will be competing with them for parking.

    There isn’t any. I’ve been to two grounds so far it’s been carnage - park in the centre and walk or get a taxi

    Free parking try around Tindal Street or George Street in Balsall Heath providing you get there at a reasonable time it wont be a problem, only about 10 minute walk away. Otherwise I'd just get the bus in from city centre.

    Cheers all. I did find some street parking about 10 mins from the ground when I went to the India Test last year so here's hoping I'll be able to do so again!
