Birmingham's rugby union team, Moseley Rugby Football Club of the National League 1 are leasing part of the common from Birmingham City Council for their pitches and clubhouse. The ground had a seating capacity of 1,450 in the original stand; however a new 5,000 seater stand and clubhouse was approved by the council to be built opposite the original stand. This has since been completed.
