Aston Villa Football Club, one of the most successful football clubs in the history of English Football, plans to expand globally and India is one of the countries where Aston Villa not only want to have an Indian Super League club but also open Football Academies all over India!”, says Tony Xia, Chairman, Aston Villa Football Club while addressing the media in New Delhi announcing the launch of its Academy in India. 

“Aston Villa has one of the best football academies in the world and has fans all over the world and some of our famous fans include David Cameron, Prince William, Tom Hanks and using our network we also want to help promote U17 FIFA World Cup being held in India next year and make it a big sports celebration in India!”, he further added.

Aston Villa FC’s Chairman, Tony Xia and group members of Aston Villa club, have been holding meetings with several members of the Indian Government including the Minister of Sport (Mr. Vijay Goel) and the Minister of Education (Mr. Prakesh Javedekar) to discuss providing the training for football coaches for Indian state schools to be based at a new Aston Villa academy and training facility to be opened in New Delhi. The objective is for India to have a national football team challenging on the international stage within a generation and for India to host the World Cup. 

The New Delhi Aston Villa academy will also coach and train youngsters from the age of 5 as Aston Villa does in England. Also, Aston Villa FC believes in equal opportunity in sports for every kid and therefore we plan to send coaches and provide coaching programme for poor kids and girls!

Aston Villa co-founded the Football League and the English Premier League and has spent the second longest period (105 years) in England’s top tier of football.  It has won the top league seven times and has also beaten Bayern Munich to win the European Cup, now called the Champions League.

It is also the leading club in the Midlands playing at its iconic Villa Park Stadium in Birmingham, England’s 2nd largest city, which has a large Indian population. Aston Villa’s football academy and training ground is regarded as one of the very best in football and is located outside Birmingham at Bodymoor Heath. 

The Sports & Leisure Division of Recon Group, one of the leading Smart City Builders of the World has purchased Aston Villa Football Club in June 2016 and Dr. Tony Xia became the youngest owner of a top English football club.

Why not take over a team in the Indian league and ship out all our wasters we can't get rid off to "promote" the league.

Sure there must be some kind of write off, financial mumbo jumbo we could use to get around FFP.

Problem is getting our wasters to want to go there, which is unlikely. :(

Good for 2 reasons

1) it's a country of 1.25bn people where football isn't the biggest sport with I'm lazily going to say some fairly unloyal glory hunting fans ripe for the picking

2) and this is potentially the big quicker thing, brum is a city of 65k Indians, 6% of the city, 220k Indians in the West Midlands 4% of the region, what's the demographic of our crowd? 40k sell out is there a couple of thousand Indians? Nowhere near from what I've seen

this could be the start of something very good for us

Flabby's contract would be paid in burgers. He would immediately accept.

Lescott can barely see a ball in front of him, so he would be thinking he'd be signing a new contract.

Guzan will try and save something in the plane, accidentally hit the door and fall to his doom.

Bacuna is heading to Barcelona, so no need to worry.
