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 Sunday against Spurs, discounts will run from 12:30pm to 1pm. Click here for full details.

Digbeth Dining Club2233

A Taste of Digbeth

Villa fans can now enjoy a very different match day food experience.

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 line-up 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.

This weekend, Griedy's Wings and Strips, Street Chef and Baked in Brick will be in attendance. 

Guru Spice215

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.

Guru Spice has a new Thai Guru Burger with Asian sweet chilli slaw and a Thai Green Curry - which is also available vegetarian or vegan. 

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. Click here for a more detailed map.

Villavegan12

Villa Vegan

Villa Park now offers a range of vegan food on a matchday.

If you fancy trying our plant-based products, there are four dishes available from the concourses. 

A Moroccan Chickpea and Tomato Pie, Vegan BBQ Burger, Vegan Dog and a Sweet Potato and Chickpea Balti are all available.
