In September Eastside City Park played host to thousands of rugby fans as Birmingham’s Fanzone was set up.  For a week the open park land behind the Woodman was closed off, with a giant screen and plenty of activities.  Live screening of key games kept fans entertained, particularly the weekend of the games at Villa Park.

The park once again showed its suitability to host major events.
