Aston Villa Ladies Season Tickets went on sale today, giving fans the chance to see the team in action for the duration of the 2019/20 campaign.
Here are five reasons why you should join their journey in the FA Women’s Championship for the upcoming season.
1] Homegrown heroes
Aston Villa Ladies’ squad is jam-packed full of players that have come through the club’s youth ranks.
Nearly half of the current squad have progressed from Villa’s Regional Talent Club into the senior ranks, with seven of them finishing the 5-1 victory against London Bees in April.
With so many players who understand what it means to represent Aston Villa, fans are guaranteed to see a team giving it their all for the shirt.
2] Young stars
Jodie Hutton has stolen the headlines on a number of occasions this past season, scoring 11 goals during a breakout campaign for the England youth international.
But the 18-year-old isn’t the only young starlet in Villa’s ranks, with the current squad’s average age at just 21.
17-year-old Asmita Ale has been hugely impressive while Sian Rogers, Tanisha Smith, Phoebe Warner and Ladies’ Player of the Year Amy West have all flourished.
3] Junior Memberships
A brand-new Season Ticket for fans under the age of 16 offers them a range of benefits in addition to watching all the games.
With a Junior Membership, which costs £30, fans will get a mascot experience, a signed squad photo, be entered into prize draws throughout the season, receive a birthday card signed by the whole squad, as well as the chance to watch a training session and meet the players.
Adult (£50), Concessions (£20) and a Family Ticket (£120), which covers two adults and two Junior Memberships, are also available.

4] Gemma Davies
At just 26-years-old, Gemma Davies is one of the youngest Head Coaches in the women’s game.
She was appointed last June and after a tricky start, guided Villa to sixth place in the FA Women’s Championship – 15 points better off than they were the season before.
With a year’s experience under her belt, the ambitious Davies will be demanding more from herself and her squad in year two.
5] Aiming high
Aston Villa CEO Christian Purslow has given his backing to the Ladies, handing Jodie Hutton her first professional contract as a sign of his intentions.
And with his backing, the Ladies want to push on and challenge for a place in the FA Women’s Super League in the coming seasons.
There were many exciting games at Boldmere St Michaels this past season and there are likely to be more in store with a promotion push on the agenda.
