Gone To The Dogs?
Hall Green Stadium was a greyhound racing stadium located in the Birmingham suburb of Hall Green. The stadium closed in July 2017 to make way for a housing development, following a planning application submitted by the stadium’s final owner, Euro Property Investments Limited.
The track itself was a 412-metre long oval track with a sand covered surface. The capacity of the stadium seems to be somewhat in question with estimates ranging from 2,500 to 3,000.
The stadium’s main stand facilities included outside terracing along the main straight, fast foods outlets, a bar on the first floor, and an indoor seated area with glass frontage overlooking the track on second floor. Also on the second floor was the a la carte restaurant. Executive suites that can hold between 18 and 100 people were located on the first bend of the track.
Related facilities included a hotel situated on bends 3 and 4 which opened in 1990, some rooms of which offered views of the track and a purpose built snooker hall along the back straight with 21 full sized tables. Conference Facilities were also provided and managed by the stadium.[
