Planning has already started for the ICC Champions Trophy games at Edgbaston and the Oval. Pakistan begin against West Indies at the Oval in London on the 7th of June. We then play two group games at Edgbaston in Birmingham, against South Africa on the 10th of June and against India on the 15th of June.
We have had a few enquiries about hotels in Birmingham as there will be a greater number of Pakistan fans attending the game and travelling from afar for the much anticipated clash against arch rivals India at Edgbaston. With the game against South Africa at the same ground five days earlier, fans will be looking for somewhere to stay. To help out our fans, below we have suggested a few hotels in the city for fans wanting to stay in Birmingham. We would like to make clear that none of these hotels are affiliated with Stani Army and that fans are free to choose and should consider their needs carefully and book accordingly.
