McGregor Statue To Be Unveiled

Lord Mawhinney, Chairman of the Football League, is to unveil the William McGregor statue at Villa Park this forthcoming Saturday prior to the home game against Spurs. The ceremony is due to commence at 4pm outside the Directors entrance, Trinity Road stand.

William McGregor was a Director of Aston Villa Football Club and moreover is credited with being the brainchild behind the formation of The Football League. The Club and Supporters’ Trust have been committed to honouring his massive contribution to English and World Football by placing a permanent commemoration for all to see at Villa Park.

The Supporters’ Trust has been working with the Club on this project over a number of years, and appointed the sculptor Sam Holland to design and build the statue. The funding has come from supporter donations and financial support from the Club. A time capsule has been placed in the base of the Statue.

The Supporters’ Trust would like to thank the Directors, the Club & its managers, Sam Holland, Lord Mawhinney, and the Aston Villa supporters for their donations in making this day happen.

Incredibly grateful to every single person involved in making this happen. Such a tribute to the most important figure in the history and evolution of world football is long, long overdue. A great day for Aston Villa F.C..
