Capital One Cup: Fans to be handed free flags for home leg


Villa Park will be a cauldron of claret and blue colour for the second leg of the Capital One Cup semi-final - with free flags handed out to all fans.

It is hoped the generous giveaway will help supporters create an unrivalled atmosphere on home soil as Villa look to reach the showpiece at Wembley.

It will be a tough, tough task with Bradford City, who have already defeated Arsenal, eager to emerge victorious too.

But home players will be boosted by the sight of over 40,000 fans swirling their streamers.

The A2-sized flag will be handed to supporters as they make their way through the turnstiles.

It is a blue background, with claret trim and features the famous rampant lion as well as a star to symbolise our historic European Cup victory in 1982.

The move follows on from the handing out of free scarves for the final home game of the 2006-07 season and free flags for the UEFA Cup clash with CSKA Moscow and the League cup semi-final clash with Blackburn.

Reacting to the giveaway, chief executive Paul Faulkner said: "Villa Park will be jam-packed with the hopes and aspirations of the entire Villa fanbase.

"The tie against Bradford City is one we are all looking forward to and I'm sure it will be hard-fought.

"The flags will be out in force again and memories of European nights against the likes of CSKA Moscow will be evoked and, of course, that unforgettable night against Blackburn Rovers when the game finished 6-4 and there wasn't anyone with a voice left in the stadium by the final whistle!"
