Home matchdays at Villa Park are more than just 90 minutes thanks to Villa's Family Fan Zone – and now you can find out which games feature this increasingly popular area.
There are hours of entertainment in store for your family on a matchday, starting with a host of activities in the Indoor Academy up to two hours before kick-off.
Our free family fundays have been a huge hit with supporters since their inception six years ago, so a decision was taken to hold them on a more frequent basis in 2013/14 by regularly opening the Family Fan Zone.
The thrill of a Villa Park matchday begins long before kick-off so be part of the big-match buzz by getting to the stadium early, bumping into our mascots Hercules, Bella and Chip, participating in an array of challenges, games and activities with other supporters, before finding your seat in the stadium and soaking up the incredible atmosphere.
There is so much in store for our junior fans, they will hardly be able to contain their excitement.
Check out the full list of matches where it is featured below - it is open to all on presentation of a match ticket from up to two hours before kick-off.
The aim is to give families an enjoyable experience in the build up to kick-off, bring new junior fans to Villa Park and increase the value for money that supporters get from their ticket price.
Providing fans with a fun, safe and exciting football experience has been a central part of the club's operation for many years.
