Sell Out – Aston Villa Season Ticket Holders in Pole Position for Immediate Future

Aston Villa Season Ticket Sell Out

Aston Villa today announced that they had sold out their capped amount of season tickets for the 2022/23 Premier League season.

A healthy 95% of season tickets sales came from existing season ticket holder’s summer renewals before the ever-fluctuating waiting list – lets call it circa 25,000 – was called into action.

How many Aston Villa season ticket holders are there?

Season tickets at Villa Park are thought to be capped off at the 30,000 mark, making it the third season in a row (when fans were permitted), that the mark has been reached. It clearly makes it another factor along with the waiting list, that emboldened the club to go ahead with its North Stand expansion plan.

Pole Position

Speaking of the North Stand rebuilding, being a season ticket holder this season, will most definitely put fans in pole position when it comes to visiting Villa Park during the construction period of the North Stand; which is expected to begin next summer.

With the North Stand now being completely demolished*, Villa will lose the stand’s capacity and have to relocate their current season ticket holders from the stand to the remaining three stands.

There is the strong prospect that Villa home games will then be practically only for season ticket holders to attend, for between one to two seasons. The temptation to up the number of season ticket holders to fill the reduced capacity Villa Park is very much on the table.

Having a season ticket this season that can be renewed for next season, certainly puts holders in a strong position (despite the price rise!).

  1. Absolutely correct regarding the relationship between the fans and the club , we should worry that local kids who cannot afford match tickets should be invited when last season Burnley and Norwich only needed the bottom tier through lack of support to fill the top tier with school kids from the area at heavily discounted tickets would AV at least give them match day experience, just a thought I know that security is a problem but not for school kids under supervision , investment in young kids is vital!

  2. Although 95% of season tickets sales came from existing season ticket holder’s I would be interested to know the breakdown between different age categories. My season ticket went up +10% but my sons u14 season ticket went up +50% which seemed quite unfair and would have been better as equal percentage increases of, say, +15% if club was concerned about revenue. I renewed for us but with rising living costs I chatted to quite a few parents who were unsure they could afford to. I am concerned that renewal %s may be lower in the u14 and u18 categories when we should be encouraging youngsters to attend matches and support their local club which the impact of the North Stand re-development on ticket availability may make harder.
