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. Birmingham Moseley's sister club Moseley Oak (formally Selly Oak RFC) have played at Billesley Common since 2008. In 2016, Birmingham Bulldogs announced that they would play their home games at the common.
Billesley Common was first mentioned in 1774 as being 'common wasteland'.
