Villa v Watford: Graham Taylor tribute, JT in claret and blue, new Villa Store opens and new kit available

Get down to Villa Park early today to snap up your tickets for the Graham Taylor tribute matchday.

We’re expecting big queues at the ground this afternoon ahead of the 3pm kick-off with Watford as fans head to Villa Park in order to pay tribute to one of our greatest ever managers.

Profits from the tribute matchday will be shared between the Taylor family’s nominated charities - Staffordshire-based National Memorial Arboretum and Watford’s Community Sports & Education Trust, as well as the AV Former Players’ Club and the Aston Villa Foundation.

While you’re down here, you can take a look around our newly refurbished Villa Store, which has our home, away, goalkeeping kits on sale for the first time today.

And then there’s the return between the sticks of goalkeeper Sam Johnstone. 

Make sure you’re ahead of the game by snapping up your seats early as we pay tribute to one of our most famous and loved managers.

Graham will always have a place of honour in our history books for his achievements while at the helm – and this is our chance to remember a great claret and blue man.

Tickets are on general sale and you can BOOK ONLINE via our new Box Office and then select Print@Home – ensuring you pay no booking fees.

Please be aware that this game is not part of your season ticket package – this starts with the opening home Sky Bet Championship match against Hull the following Saturday.

As well as booking online, you can also call us to buy your tickets at 0333 323 1874.

Tickets are priced £15 for adults, £10 for concession groups and £5 for U16s.
