Family Fun Days
Home matchdays at Villa Park are more than just 90 minutes thanks to Villa's increasingly popular family fundays.
There is over five hours of entertainment in store for your family on a matchday, starting with a host of free activities in the Indoor Academy three hours before kick-off.
Our free family fundays have been a huge hit with supporters since their inception five years ago, so a decision was taken to hold them on a more frequent basis in 2013-14.
The thrill of a Villa Park matchday begins long before kick-off. Be part of the big-match buzz by getting to the stadium early, bumping into our mascots Hercules, Bella and Chip, participating in an array of free challenges, games and activities with other supporters, before finding your seat in the stadium and soaking up the incredible atmosphere.
There is so much in store for our junior fans, they will hardly be able to contain their excitement.
The fundays now take place before most mid and late afternoon kick offs [generally 3pm, 4pm or 5.30pm – please check avfc.co.uk for confirmation].
The aim is to give families an enjoyable experience in the build up to kick-off, bring new junior fans to Villa Park and increase the value for money that supporters get from their ticket price.
Providing fans with a fun, safe and exciting football experience has been a central part of the club's operation for many years.
Villa Park fundays offer a great family day out in a safe environment, with three hours of pre-match activities for the youngsters followed the excitement of Barclays Premier League football.
Funday activities usually include large inflatables, challenge-based games, football activities, face painting and much more.
Special Villa guests – including current and former players – have been known to occasionally make appearances too.
What's more, the fundays often coincide with some great family ticket offers, making the whole day out at Villa Park excellent value for money.
