Our infographic begins at the very start of the football club’s history, having been founded as Small Heath Alliance in 1875 after being formed by a group of cricketers from the Holy Church. Birmingham FC play their home games at St Andrew’s and this stadium has proven to be the heart and soul of the football club. With a capacity of over 30,000 people there’s no surprise that the club’s atmosphere is electric during every game. The club are currently situated in the second tier of English football known as the Championship, and despite fluctuating up and down from the top tier of English football through the ages and even being relegated to the third tier, the squad have come back fighting harder than ever to retain their position in the Championship. 888sport will be with them every step of the way, as their brand new sponsors.
