Update on season ticket sales and a great offer from the club.
Villa have announced that sales are up 225% on this time last season for season ticket sales.
To date Villa have sold 16,000 season tickets. How refreshing that they are releasing such information, before it was all very cloak and dagger and more often than not, staff were told not to release such figures, now all is in the open!
For anyone looking to renew, don't forget this Friday is the deadline.
Head of Consumer Sales Nicola Keye told the official site:
'Sales are going very well and we continue to be well on course for our targets. We're delighted with the way things are going so far. The supporters are very positive about the new season and we've not even added to the squad yet. We're sure fans will be even more optimistic once Martin starts to sign players.'
And further to that, Villa are offering North Stand season tickets for just £200. These seats will be in the North Stand Lower, where the away fans used to sit. Now we'll be able to pack both ends of the goals with Claret and Blue.
The offer is limited to 1,500 and they will be put on sale next Monday. Adult season tickets £200, junior fans (Under-16) £50 (£2.64 a game!!!!!). Wonder if I could still pass off as under 16? Hmmm, might need some oil of ulay, on the other hand, cement might be more appropriate.
Martin O'Neill has spoken about the move for fans to be either end of the goals.
'My own belief that behind both goals have been historically and traditionally areas where home fans want to be. That is what I want to do. I think it will be good. I just think it will be better. As a home team you should be able to dictate where you want your home fans. I personally prefer it because I am always surprised when the area behind the goal is given up for away fans. I just believe that if I had a choice I would always prefer the areas behind both goals to be full of home fans - that would be my view of running the stadium.'
The away fans are being moved to the Upper and Lower Witton Lane Stand.
From the official site, details of the offer:
