In Brief

Aston Villa are bringing forward these exciting new plans that will enable the club to grow its youth training programme within the city - just 500 yards from Villa Park.

The state-of-the-art academy, on Witton Road, Aston, will provide opportunities for the local community through the Aston Villa Foundation and in partnership with local junior football clubs.

Indoor & outdoor 3G pitches – both floodlit – will be included alongside a claret cladded new build that will facilitate lounges for parents, changing facilities, and office space.

The academy is expected to see up to 100 players and 20 staff use the facilities.
