VIDEOS: All About Villa's New Kit & Macron

A bumper set of youtubes about the new kit.

The cameras travelled to our kit manufacturers HQ so fans could have early access sneak peaks at the design and manufacturing processes for both the home and away kits.

Included are interviews from Macron's Chief Exec Gianluca Pavenello who gives us the history and ethos of the company, as well as Product Manager Amedeo Lossa who takes us through the processes for designing the new kits and we even have Engineering and Quality Control Head Lucio Lucci who discusses the specific manufacturing of the kits.

Not to be left out, possibly knowing what fans are like for leaked copies of the kits each season, AVTV speaks to Production Director Paolo Guizzardi who speaks about distribution and security!

As well as numerous photos of Macron's home base, there is also a back catalogue of our kits through the ages.

The shop is all but ready: AVFC Direct

Our kit forum thread: Click Here where you will see some decent mock ups, be interesting to see what the shirts are like!

The design... he talks all funny, that`s not Brummie is it, I come from Four Oaks so can`t tell you see?!?!? ;o)

As a collector of 80s vintage sportswear, in particular, two Italian brands I have to say they defintely know their style. I am impressed with their passion and desire to produce top quality and go along the retro route. Were nearly there Fear !!! Weve got retro, we just need Adidas Originals to make the kit ;-)
