In brief: Birmingham football and cricket clubs in talks with council over stadium plans

Birmingham City Football Club and Warwickshire County Cricket Club are in talks with Birmingham City Council over plans to move to a 60,000-seat stadium in the city's Eastside area. It is envisaged that the stadium would be able to host international cricket matches throughout the year, the football club's home fixtures and major athletics meetings.

The council is set to commission a feasibility study into the project.
