Villa Season Tickets At Record High

Villa Season Tickets At Record High

The Villa season ticket sales, as of Saturday 11 August were at 24 624 according to Villa director General Charles Krulak who spoke of the record in our 100% Villa forum yesterday.

This figure beats our previous record of around 23 500 when Stan Collymore signed from Liverpool whilst he who walks on water, Brian Little, was our manager.

With a few star signings and I genuinely believe we'd have smashed the 30 000 mark this season but at least we are moving forward.

The important thing now is to ensure we not only keep that 24,624, but build upon it next season. To do that we need to speculate, and its fair to say that we haven't done that this summer.

star signing or two and we'd have smashed that I think.

Couldn't agree more JF. I believe that there were quite a few supporters sitting on the fence, just waiting for that little extra incentive (new player-wise) to splash the cash and become s/t holders. Shame that as a club we didn't come through.

5,000 up on last year if you discount the 1,000 kids tickets sold at £50 in the North Stand. I bet at least 4,000 of the extra 5,000 were bought expecting some top-class signings as promissed by Fitzgerald. So there could be a many very inhappy supporters in another 3 weeks.

Starved of Star Signings TBH the tickets were sold on the wave enthusiasm hung over from a great finish to last season and the promise of a revitalised Villa Squad.... If it was a used car you would loook at the cosmetic bodywork and say NON

I must confess that i haven't bought a season ticket this year. In per-season me and 5 of my mates all wanted to get them, but we held back because we wanted to see who we signed. And from the lack of transfer news it doesn't look like we're going to get them. It could be 24,629 if we bought a few class signings. But we can't complain of the lack of money!
