It was a great day all round on Wednesday as Aston Villa concluded their week-long pre-season training camp in Minneapolis.

The squad got their Premier League preparations off to a comfortable start, dispatching Minnesota United 3-0 at Allianz Field thanks to goals from Jack Grealish, Henri Lansbury and Birkir Bjarnason.

But there was as much going on off the pitch as on it on matchday, with hundreds of Villa fans turning out to support the team.

First, there was a pre-match meet-up at the famous Brit's Pub where supporters could get their hands on our new Kappa home shirt, take part in a quiz and hear a talk from CEO Christian Purslow.

That was followed by a simultaneous screening of our away kit reveal and finally a trip to the match itself.
