Up to 25 catering staff at Edgbaston cricket ground are at risk of losing their jobs due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on match days.
Workers from the Edgbaston Experience Limited, which is the joint-venture between Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Compass Group UK & Ireland, are part of a consultation process for redundancy.
There has been no catered match days or events taking place for months, which prompted the company to make the “difficult decision” over future cuts.
But it is still hoped that some staff will be redeployed where possible.
An Edgbaston Experience Limited spokesperson told BirminghamLive: “The sports and leisure sector has been one of the most deeply impacted sectors as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“With no catered match days or events taking place, or scheduled to do so for the foreseeable future, it is with deep regret that we have had to take the difficult decision to enter into a redundancy consultation with our catering team.
“This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, and we are working hard to redeploy staff where possible.”
Edgbaston regularly hosts England Test matches and was due to host a series game against the West Indies. Matches were later moved to Southampton and Manchester as part of a bio-secure bubble due to hotel facilities on site.
The Edgbaston Experience Limited said it would “not be appropriate to speculate on redundancy figures” while the consultation process is underway.
But it is understood the catering team is less than 25 people, consisting of both part and full-time workers.
