When does the season start?

The new Premier League campaign will commence on Friday 9th August 2019, with Liverpool playing Norwich City. We'll then face Spurs the following day.

When is the transfer window open? 

The summer transfer window is open now, and will close at 5pm on Thursday 8th August 2019.

What about the loan window?

It'll be the same deadline in terms of incomings.

However, clubs can sell or loan players out to other leagues whose transfer windows are open after 8th August – so until 5pm on Monday 2nd September.

When do Season Tickets come back on sale?

Season Tickets for Aston Villa's 2019/20 Premier League campaign are set to break all records as they close in on the incredible 30,000 mark.

It is the first time in the modern era that so many Villa supporters have bought a season card guaranteeing them access to all league games in the campaign.

Since being available again, sales have soared in anticipation of our return to the top flight with more than 3,000 snapped up within the first 24-hour period.

Added to those who had already renewed – including more than 20,000 ‘Early Bird’ Season Ticket holders – the previous record of 27,709 from 2008/09 season is set to be surpassed, resulting in the decision to limit the total available to 30,000.

The club has created a waiting list for new and returning supporters who did not have a Season Ticket last season.

Supporters can now register their interest by entering their details on the waiting list, which will then be categorised by order of registration on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to availability.

Those on the list will then be notified as new Season Tickets become available.
