Trinity Road Upper For Xmas
Aston Villa announced today that the Trinity Road Upper ‘could be open for the visit of Sheffield United’ which takes place on Saturday December 23, kick-off 5.30pm.
Ticket sales for the fixture are reported by the club to currently be at 31k with the club declaring they are ‘on the verge of making a positive decision on the top tier’.
Traditionally gates around the Christmas period are offered a boost by supporters visiting the area to see their families for festive period.
Last season, a Boxing Day crowd of 41,337 (including the opened Trinity Road Upper) saw Ross McCormack score the winner in a 2-1 win against Burton Albion, and you’d think that with both United and Villa contesting the promotion spots, another crowd between 36,000 and 40,000 mark could be expected.
Certainly the pre-Christmas Villa Park gate would receive a big boost if Villa pick up three points against Derby at the weekend.
