    Birmingham v Kent 4/8/2021

    That statement saying the crowd is only a third pre covid is a lie ! I have been to all the meetings this season & I'm not blind.

    He thought he might not get paid so has gone on strike

    Birmingham v Plymouth

    Well i don't know where you live but i am 3 miles from Perry Barr & there was 2 very heavy thunder storms in the afternoon, so saying there was no rain in Brum is not correct.

    Birmingham v Plymouth

    You hit the nail on the head. The Masons just turn up on a Wednesday from there base in Sussex & expect to see the stadium full without any promoting of the meeting apart to the diehards who will still turn up anyway.

  8. BIRMINGHAM Speedway have put their season on hold with immediate effect.Club owners Peter and David Mason have revealed ‘things have to change’ with numbers at Perry Barr for the club to become viable.Like other venues, the Brummies are restricted to the amount of fans they can allow in the stadium and as a consequence they are suffering heavy losses.The situation has not been helped by the pay on the door option being temporarily suspended due to Covid regulations.They are holding out hope for an increase in audience numbers after June 21 to enable them to continue with their Wednesday night action – but for the time being the Brummies won’t race again until July 1 at the earliest.Peter Mason said: “The constraints with which we are working in are making it impossible to run as a sustainable business right now.“We are desperately trying to make it work and we are determined to keep this club afloat, a club with such a rich heritage and a focal point of the city, carrying the Birmingham name.“A lot of people fought over many years to bring the sport back to Birmingham and we don’t want to be the ones who oversee its demise. On the contrary, we are determined to make this work and provide a bright future for this wonderful sport and wonderful club with a very loyal fan base.“But right now we are working with our hands tied behind our back. I must thank everyone who has worked with us to get us this far and we don’t want to let all the hard work go to waste.“That said, things have to change for us to continue at Perry Barr throughout the rest of this season.”David Mason added: “A large part of our following is from the older generation, some of which are in their 70s and 80s and do not shop online. Many don’t even have access to a computer and this has badly affected our crowd levels.“We were advertising pay on the gate until this was blocked 24-hours before the meeting and this decision alone cost us valuable revenue and we drove away from the stadium knowing we had lost thousands of pounds.“That quite simply cannot continue and we are taking this decision to protect the long term future of the sport at Perry Barr Stadium.“We would like to thank our fans and we need them more than ever before if and when we can restart from July 1. It’s absolutely vital they stay with us and as summer holidays approach we will be actively looking at encouraging more youngsters to the sport.”

  15. BIRMINGHAM are opening up opportunities for fans to purchase tickets for home meetings on a Tuesday night at the stadium.Boss Laurence Rogers will be at the club office in the pits from 5pm – 6.30 over three Tuesdays in June – 1, 8 and 15.Rogers will assist fans who are unfamiliar with online ordering and will have forms to fill in for him to input and complete the process.Tickets must be booked by midnight on a Tuesday before a Wednesday night home meeting and the service is a lifeline to some older fans.Entry will be through the blue gates where the car park is and the old car wash was and fans need to turn left and follow the path round into the pits with the office based at the bottom.Said Rogers: “I know there are fans who will have these problems so we thought we would do what we could to help them.“We are also at the stadium on Saturday and Sunday this weekend from 9am if anyone wants to pop in then otherwise I will be there on Tuesday June 1st, 8th and 15th to get the forms completed.“
