Graham Taylor Cup

After it was suggested by Villa fans at the last Fan Consultation Group meeting with the club there should be a friendly fixture between Villa and Watford to commemorate the late boss of both teams Graham Taylor, early preseason fixtures announced by the club today confirmed the fixture will take place.

As Villa stated on their website, profits from the fixture on Saturday July 29 at Watford will all be donated to charities of his family’s choosing.

Villa’s away fans can expect an allocation of around 4,500 tickets for the match.
