Villa Pre-Season 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd make this as Villa have just announced that they will be coming over Stateside for a pre-season friendly with Minnesota United. (Not sure if this is the right thread to put this)

Also I had seen rumors that we were under consideration to play DC United as well so keep an eye out for that as well.

Pre-season 2019/20: Aston Villa heading to USA this summer

Pre-season 2019/20: Aston Villa heading to USA this summer
 

Aston Villa is delighted to announce that the club will be heading to the USA to play MLS side Minnesota United in a pre-season friendly this summer. 

The match will take place at Allianz Field on Wednesday, 17th July with a 7pm local time kick-off. The match will take place at the end of a Stateside pre-season training camp ahead of the 2019/20 season. 

Dean Smith has already flown out to Minnesota to take a close look at the first-class facilities for what will be his first pre-season since taking over as Head Coach. 

This tour will also provide the club with a commercial opportunity to fly the flag for Aston Villa and the city of Birmingham in the United States. 

A key element of the club’s ongoing strategy is to reach out to our fans all over the world both online and where possible in person by playing matches. 

This match in Minnesota will give the opportunity for our US fans to watch the team first hand. We are working on packages for UK and US-based fans to stay near the squad, watch them train and attend the big match.
