Venue Information

Villa Park, Trinity Road, Birmingham, B6 6HE

Villa Park is one of the oldest and most famous stadiums in Europe. The club’s home since 1897, the ground sits in the shadow of the Jacobean stately home Aston Hall.

It is no stranger to major events, either, having hosted matches at both the 1966 World Cup and the European Championships in 1996. But it is not just football that has graced our spiritual home.

Villa Park has also been the setting for concerts from music stars such as Bruce Springsteen, Barry White, Duran Duran, Take That and Bon Jovi.
