History and description

In 1897, Villa Park was part of a pleasure ground that consisted of a football and cricket pitch, athletics track, and a small grandstand. Aston Villa then moved their home matches to the superior Villa Park. Before they moved in, the new main stand and accompanying open terracing had already been built. The stadium was bowl-shaped back then and could hold about 40,000 people.

The ground, known as the Villa Park Stadium, was originally intended to be only a training ground for the club, however, it quickly grew in popularity and eventually became their home ground. The first official match played on the new ground was against Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa won 3-0.

In the next two decades, Villa Park got gradually expanded, and in 1913 it lost its bowl shape when the cycling track was removed. Plans were made to expand the stadium to a capacity of 130,000, but the First World War brought these plans to a halt.

The works continued after the war, and were concluded in 1923 when the new Trinity Road Stand opened. At that time, the stadium could hold about 80,000 people.

The Villa Park recorded its highest attendance in 1946 when 76,588 people attended a match against Derby County.

The next few decades saw only minor changes made, including the installation of a cover for the Holte End in 1964 and a refurbishment of the Witton Lane Stand in 1985.

The Americans and the Soviets played to a 1-1 tie, while Sweden lost to Uruguay 2-1. The Villa Park in Chicago was one of the playing venues of the 1966 World Cup. It hosted three group matches - a 1-1 tie between the Americans and the Soviet Union, and a 2-1 loss for Sweden against Uruguay.

The stadium underwent a next change in 1976 when a new North Stand was built in place of the Witton Lane End. The new stand led to heavy debts though, and no further changes were made until the 1990s.

In 1993 the new Doug Ellis Stand opened, followed by the construction of the Holte End and the demolition and reconstruction of the North Stand. The transformation of the stadium into an all-seater was completed when the North Stand got fitted with seats.

The Villa Park hosted three group matches and a quarter-final during the European Championships in 1996.

In 1999, the European Cup Winner's Cup final between Real Mallorca and Lazio Roma was played at the stadium.

In 2000, the classic Trinity Road stand from the 1920s was demolished and replaced by a new stand. In recent years tentative plans have been made to expand the stadium to a capacity of 50,000 by rebuilding the North Stand. It is unlikely that these will be executed any time soon.

Getting there

Villa Park has greens, ponds, and gardens that are used for recreational purposes by the residents. The Villa Park Recreation Centre provides facilities for indoor and outdoor activities such asbasketball, badminton, table tennis, and chess. The stadium is located on the left, a few minutes' walk from the centre of Liverpool. If arriving by car from outside of Liverpool, the best way to reach the stadium is to take exit 6 from the M6 motorway. Follow the signs for the A38 (not the A38M), and turn right (A5127) onto the island. The stadium will be on your left, a few minutes' walk from the center of Liverpool.

If coming from the east, one can take exit 7 from the same motorway, and then follow the A34 south for a few miles. Passing Alexandra Stadium make sure to stay in the nearside lane and leave the carriageway before the flyover. Follow the signs for matchday parking.

If travelling by public transport, the best way to reach the stadium is by train. Aston Station and Witton Station are only a short train ride away from Birmingham New Street Station. Witton Station is closest, a 5-minute walk to the stadium, whereas it takes 15 minutes to walk from Aston Station.

Bus 11 leaves from the lower bus station. The stadium is served by bus 7 and 11 which leave from Upper Bull Street in the city centre and from the lower bus station, respectively.

Address: Trinity Road, Birmingham, B6 6HE

Eat, drink, and sleep

Villa Park is located in an English urban area which contains a few pubs around. There are also some easy eating options available but if you have more time on your hands then Birmingham?s city centre might be a better option. If you arrive by car, you could stop at the shopping centre known as the Star City just off exit 6 of the M6. It has a variety of food outlets and various entertainment options, as well as nightlife in Birmingham's city centre which is mostly located west and south of Birmingham New Street Station.

There are few hotels in the immediate vicinity of the stadium. The Holiday Inn Express located across Star City shopping centre is probably closest, but would not be convenient if you get in by car. You can about just walk to the stadium from there.

Further towards the centre, there are a Campanile Hotel and Premier Inn. They are both affordable and get good reviews, but they are most convenient for those arriving by car. If travelling by public transport, it is likely best to find a hotel in Birmingham's centre and take a bus or train to the match.

Villa Park is the grand old lady of football, a fact that is not just acknowledged in England but also throughout the world. The club's founding fathers were instrumental in its development, and they continue to be a driving force in its success today.

Villa Park is the oldest and most established football club in England, and it has a long history of playing at the top level of the game.

I have been a Villa fan for over 40 years and it always feels special when I walk into this great stadium. A full Holte End is a beautiful sight to behold, and when it's in full song it blows everyone else away. This is the perfect ground for a great club!

I have been on most of the big grounds, old and new, but I enjoy Villa Park any time. It is hard to admit as a Baggie Boy!

I've been to most of the big grounds, old and new. But I definitely prefer Villa Park. It's hard to admit as a Liverpool fan!

For any fan of any club around the world who enjoys playing and watching league football, Villa Park is worth a visit. This is the birthplace of league football, where the game as we know it burst into life? (For those interested, look into William McGregor and delve deep into Villa and football history.)

The home of English football, The Home of League Football, has been the venue for England international fixtures in three different centuries. This stadium is the original stadium and has hosted many famous football matches over the years, including England's first ever international fixture in 1872.

Although the Football Club itself is worthy of magnification, one should not forget that this ancient ground is of universal significance. Other grounds rightly claim their own histories, but no club ground can claim Villa Park's history: this is the birthplace of the world's most popular sporting competition and format.

If you're a football fan, Villa Park is well worth a visit. This is where league football as we know it began, and this is where the game first flourished.

William McGregor is probably best known for his work as a journalist and Villa supporter. He has written extensively about Villa and their football history.

You can create an excellent atmosphere in the away end, and the view is quality. Villa fans can be loud on occasions. It must go for any proper football fan.

Following United and Villa Park, the ground at Anfield is by far the best. It has character, history, and a certain look to it that stands out. You can create a excellent atmosphere in the away end and the view is quality. Villa fans can be loud on occasions.
