Aston Villa tickets & prices at Villa Park

Aston Villa season tickets: Pricing, availability

Aston Villa announced that there would be an increase of 15% across the majority of their adult season ticket offering when renewals were launched, toward the end of last season.

This decision came as part of a benchmarking exercise when the club found that their prices were amongst some of the lowest in the Premier League, and they felt that should change. The upturn on the pitch was the catalyst for making changes to increase revenues to help Emery's side compete with the best on the pitch.

An Aston Villa season ticket ensures entry for every Premier League game and guarantees priority for all other cup and European games to be played at home, although up until this season, home cup games were included.

This benefit has now been removed.

Zone 1 season tickets for adults cost around £751 through to Zone 4 with a price point of £531.

At this stage, season tickets are no longer on sale but you can still secure Aston Villa tickets for some of the top Premier League fixtures in the months ahead.
