Cody Fisher, a 23-year-old football player, has been identified as the guy who was fatally stabbed in a Birmingham nightclub.

In a statement, his relatives said: “They’ve shattered our hearts, and I’ve lost a close companion as a result. At this difficult time, we ask that you please respect our need for privacy.”
On Christmas Day at around 11:45 p.m., officers from the West Midlands Police Department were dispatched to the Crane nightclub in Digbeth.

It was reported to the police that Mr. Fisher was out with pals when he was attacked and stabbed by a bunch.

Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, and he was pronounced dead about half an hour later. A homicide probe has been initiated by the authorities.

Mr. Fisher was a member of the Stratford Town FC team that competes in the Central Division of the Southern League. Bromsgrove Sporting was another team that he had played for.

Jed McCrory, chairman of Stratford Town, told Sky News, “everyone is shocked by the news,” calling Mr. Fisher a “brilliant footballer” and a “beautiful, gorgeous young man.”
In a statement, the team mourned Mr. Fisher’s passing as a “tragic loss” and extended its condolences to his “family and friends of Cody.”

A acquaintance of Mr. Fisher’s from his time at Bromsgrove last year told Sky News: “He was, without a doubt, one of the nicest individuals you could ever meet. What he wouldn’t give to have you as a friend.”

Mr. Fisher apparently texted the friend last night to see whether he was going out with them, but the guy ended up declining the invitation.

When the incident occurred, hundreds of individuals were at the club, according to the police.

Many of them were plainly not there to appreciate the music but rather to cause disturbance.”
Any item might have been brought in by anyone.

A Wolverhampton resident of 18 years of age who declined to provide his identity described the situation as a “disaster waiting to happen.”

With regards to the invasive security checks, he said: “My companion and I had our pockets full, yet we were never asked to empty them. My pockets were stuffed in my cargo pants.

“They didn’t even have to touch me when they searched me; they only traced my silhouette with their hands before tapping me on the shoulder to let me pass.
