Former Aston Villa and Coventry striker, Dion Dublin, will open the newly-renovated Rectory Park Pavilion and football pitches in Sutton Coldfield today.
The new facilities were funded by a grant of more than £300,000 from the country's largest sports charity, the Football Foundation. Birmingham City Council will also provide more funding for pitch improvements.
