Khalid Jan, Umar Zazai, Sardar Khattak, Mujahid Chambili and Mirwais Chambili all pleaded not guilty to the murder of Ikram Ullah Khan when they appeared at the city’s crown court.
Jan, 23, Zazai, 25, Khattak, 34, Mujahid Chambili, 23, and 18-year-old Mirwais Chambili are likely to face trial in January next year.
Jan, of Ombersley Road, Sparkbrook; Zazai, of no fixed address; Khattak, of Foxwell Road, Bordesley Green; Mujahid Chambili and Mirwais Chambili, both of Adria Road, Sparkhill, were all remanded in custody.
Two other men charged with killing Mr Khan have yet to enter a plea.
Mr Khan, 28, died after being injured during disorder which broke out in the Grantham Road and Farm Road area of Sparkbrook on July 2 this year. It was initially thought the victim, known locally as Ikram Elahi, had been shot but post-mortem tests found his death was the result of a stab wound.
