WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IN THIS YEAR'S COUNTY CUP FINALS
Senior Challenge Cup Final returns to St. Andrew’s
Kicking-off at 7.30pm, the 2019 Birmingham Senior Challenge Cup Final promises to be a hugely entertaining encounter; contested between Leamington and Nuneaton Borough – two clubs with a rich recent history in the competition, which is among the oldest in the country. St. Andrew’s has become a regular venue for Birmingham County FA’s showpiece event, with last year’s encounter also hosted at the Championship ground.

The 2019 County Cup Finals will be the first to be played on the renovated Walter Goodman Stadium. Once last season’s County Cup Finals concluded, work took place over the summer months to transform the stadium ahead of the new season. Changes include new turnstiles, a new barrier around the pitch, a net behind one of the goals to prevent anything from striking the building, in addition to work carried out on the pitch to ensure it is a state-of-the-art facility.
As well as the Senior Challenge Cup, three of our County Cup Finals will take place away from the Walter Goodman Stadium. Stourbridge FC will host the Joel Richards Memorial Cup Final on Monday 15 April, whilst Sutton Coldfield Town FC will host a Final for the second season in a row when the Midweek Floodlit Challenge Cup Final takes place on Tuesday 23 April. Tamworth FC will once again host the Women’s County Cup Final where Coventry United Ladies will hope to retain their title after a remarkable 15-0 victory in 2018.
Each of our 14 County Cup Finals would not be possible without the volunteers who help support the running of each event. Each Final will be supported by the Competitions Committee, who are manning the turnstiles and fulfilling other roles, Youth Council, who are running the tannoy whilst supporting coverage of the event, and members of staff at Birmingham County Football Association. Feel free to stop us and ask questions you may have as we are there to help ensure you enjoy your matchday experience with us whilst celebrating your success.
