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 on Monday, 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.
Chief Commercial Officer Nicola Ibbetson said: “The demand for Season Tickets has been remarkable and we thank everybody for their incredible support. We started with a record-breaking ‘Early Bird’ period of sale and the momentum has continued. This has come after an exceptional surge in matchday attendances at Villa Park last season.
“We have decided to cap the total number of Season Tickets for 2019/20 season at 30,000. It will give supporters who are unable to buy a Season Ticket for whatever reason, be it economic or logistical, an opportunity to buy matchday tickets for our league games at Villa Park.
“It will enable close to 8,000 matchday tickets to be sold to Villa fans for each home game of what promises to be a really exciting season.”
The deadline for the small number of existing Season Ticket holders who have not renewed for the new campaign to do so is midnight on Friday 28th June.
Relocation day on Saturday 29th June will be for seat relocation only. No new sales will take place.
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.
