In a bid to recreate recent atmospheres at Villa Park, we've introduced some early bird offers on refreshments this season.

Supporters who arrive and help build the atmosphere from the concourses earlier will now be able to enjoy their favourite beers, snacks and meals at a discounted price (up to 35% cheaper) in a limited window.

The offers will be available for the first 30 minutes of the concourses being open, which happens 90 minutes before kick-off.

So, on Monday against the Toon, discounts will run from 6.30pm to 7pm. Click here for full details.

A Taste of Digbeth... Coming to Villa Park

Villa fans will be able to enjoy a very different match day food experience as of Monday night.

 

We have announced a new partnership alongside the multi award-winning street food and events providers, Digbeth Dining Club (DDC).

DDC, who welcome almost 6,000 people every week to their home on Lower Trinity Street will be creating a ‘street food court’ in B6 this season.

Alongside a rotating lineup of some of their most popular food traders, DDC will be providing a whole host of entertainment to enhance the matchday experience for all match goers.

Spicin' it up

Supporters can now look forward to a refined food menu in certain concourses this term, after we took the decision to add greater variety to our menu.

Three brand-new kiosk types - Guru Spice, Chicken Shack and Roast – will be trialled in concourses around Villa Park with a view to expanding into more areas in the future.

There's now a Guru Spice open in Lower Trinity, too, meaning every stand has a new food concept.

Check out the host of new choices on offer and where each new kiosk is below.
