The Blues claimed a 2-0 win over German side Hohenlohe in Kunzelsau.
The game was played in searing heat and Birmingham struggled to overcome the conditions, but they still claimed a comfortable win.
Mikael Forssell (pictured) and Neil Danns claimed the goals for Steve Bruce's men.
Forssell opened the scoring on 28 minutes when he slotted home, before Danns converted a penalty late on.
Of Bruce's summer signings only Stuart Parnaby was on show as the international clearances for most of his new signings have yet to come through.
Elsewhere, Sheffield United and Bradford claimed victories against local non-league opposition in the shape of Worksop and Harrogate Town respectively.
