25th Anniversary Celebration Events

The plans for the celebrations of the 25th anniversary for the team of 82 have now been firmed up.

Chief Executive Richard FitzGerald said: 'We wanted to make this an anniversary to remember and spreading events over a whole weekend will be a fantastic way to celebrate the greatest achievement in the club's history. We know there are players who now live on the other side of the world but we're doing everything we can to help them get here and we're hoping for a strong turnout from the players, coaches and staff who made this famous victory possible.'

The official site has explained the following details:

Friday May 4 - Supporter Night

Members of the '82 squad will be present at a Supporter Night with a question and answer session to be held in the Holte Suite at Villa Park.

Tickets are available to season ticket holders (one per season ticket) at 5 with proceeds going to Acorns Hospice Trust. They go on sale Tuesday April 3 from: Consumer Sales department (0871 423 8101) from Tuesday April 3.

Saturday May 5 - Matchday Parade

A Parade of the squad of 82 will be held at the home fixture with Sheffield United and to pack the place out Villa have offered 5,000 match tickets priced at just 5 to season ticket holders (limited to two per season ticket holder).
