Welcome to Villa Park – home of Aston Villa FC


Aston Villa became the second team ever to win the double, when they won the First Division and FA Cup in 1897. The first club to achieve the feat was Preston North End.

Archie Hunter became the first player to score in every round of the FA Cup in 1887. Villa lifted the famous cup competition with Hunter scoring one of the goals in their final win against West Bromwich Albion.

Villa are one of only seven clubs to have played in every Premier League season. Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur are the other six.

Aston Villa have had more England internationals than any other club. The figure stands at 72 to date, with Fabian Delph the latest name on the list.

Their 128 goals during the 1930/31 season still stands as the record for the most top-flight goals scored in a single season.

Villa Park has played host to more FA Cup semi-finals than any other club ground (55).

Aston Villa have the fifth highest total of major honours won by an English club, having lifted the top-flight title on seven occasions. The most recent of those successes came in 1980/81.

George Ramsey, who spent 42 years in charge of Aston Villa, still holds the record for the most FA Cup wins as a manager. Ramsey, who took charge of 1,327 Villa games, won the FA Cup on six occasions.
