Villa Park looking to expand to 50,000 capacity

Tuesday 30th August 2022

Aston Villa have released plans to increase the capacity of Villa Park to 50,000.

The English Premier League side has received overwhelming support from the local community with almost 93% of respondents in favour of the redevelopment.

The first phase of the plans would include a rebuild of the North Stand wrapping into the Trinity Stand. This is expected to add another 7,500 seats, taking the Villa Park capacity to over 50,000.

The club also plans to build a new standalone venue called Villa Live which would feature a museum and shop as well space for local communities.

Villa are also looking ahead to further expansion, possibly as soon as 2025. The initial phase of development is expected to cost around £100m, with a decision on planning permission due later this year. The club are currently averaging over 41,500 this season, up more than 10% on last year's average of 37,000.
