5 reasons to buy a Half Season Ticket

Our half season tickets are currently on sale – and selling unbelievably well.

If you’re yet to snap one up and are struggling to decide whether to, here are 5 reasons you should.

1] Big games

The second half of the season sees some huge games come to Villa Park.

There’s Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion, Derby County, Middlesbrough, Bristol City – and we conclude the campaign with a clash against current league leaders Norwich City.

B6 will be buzzing with Dean Smith rallying his troops and pushing the players on in their big promotion push.

Prices begin at just £180 for 11 fixtures – ensuring savings of £40 compared to buying single match tickets.

And, if we don’t make it up automatically, a half season ticket will ensure you get priority on any subsequent home Play-Off semi-final.

SmithBoltonGoal2] Attacking impetus

Dean Smith was the popular choice when a new boss was needed – and he’s already shown that Christian Purslow’s decision, alongside Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens, was an inspired one.

Smith is claret and blue through and through, which counts for a lot when managing this huge football club.

But, more than that, his style of play – attacking, inventive, relentless – has really hit a chord with the fanbase.

History suggests that Aston Villa fans want to see a front-foot, aggressive, inspired strategy out there on the green grass – and they’re certainly seeing it.

Make sure you don’t miss out – snap up your half season ticket.

3] Big support

Join the Pride – and, trust us, there’s already lots of you!

Our half season ticket numbers this term – almost 1,400 - are the highest for just under 10 years.

The last time we reached these heights was 2009/10, when Martin O’Neill was chasing Champions League football with the likes of John Carew, Stiliyan Petrov, Ashley Young and James Milner.

There’s plenty to play for in this campaign, too – as we stalk the upper echelons of the table.

Smith has one goal in mind – promotion back to the Premier League – be here to cheer the boys on in their quest for the promised land.

FansBlues4] Smith salutes supporters

Dean Smith is one of us so he knows the power of the claret and blue army.

But it’s fair to say even he’s been blown away by the massive backing he’s received since arriving in the hotseat.

We’ve seen supporters come to Villa Park time after time in big numbers this season already – with Leeds on Sunday 23rd December the latest game looking set for sell-out.

Smith has enjoyed a very impressive home record since joining – three wins and one draw – and a lot of that is down to the quality of the football.

But he also knows it’s the intimidating atmosphere that’s created by row upon row of Aston Villa supporter screaming their lungs out.

Be one of them – and snap up your half season ticket.

5] Festive surprise

Picture the scene.

You’ve got a loved one who’s a claret and blue fanatic. They’ve got the shirt, the lampshade, the wallpaper, the bedspread, the slippers – they’ve even got new games ‘Guess Who’ and ‘Monopoly’.

What on earth extra could you get them to make their Christmas extra special? 

Look no further than a half season ticket! You know it makes sense.
