Villa Park has been the home of Aston Villa Football Club since 1897 and holds a huge amount of history. The stadium has hosted an incredible 55 FA Cup Semi finals, more than any other ground.

The ground has been approved to increase the capacity from 42,000 to 50,000 should the demand be there. It would involve filling in the corners of the North Stand.

Stadium Layout


Away supporters are located in the blue and white area of the Doug Ellis Stand. Up to 2,972 fans can be accommodated in this area, split between both the upper and lower tiers of the stand. If only a small away following is expected then just the upper tier is allocated.
