Season ticket holders from the 2019-20 campaign can enter a ballot from noon on Wednesday, May 5 until 5pm on Sunday, May 9 to be in with a chance of attending what will be the first match at Villa Park with a crowd for more than 15 months.

Fans can apply to attend in groups of up to six and can choose between standard seating, accessible seating or wheelchair bays.

The ballot will be held entirely online and supporters will be required to set up a digital membership in order to enter.

Those successful will be notified by email and be given a window in which to purchase tickets, which will be priced between £27 and £50. Attendance will be subject to supporters completing a health declaration within 72 hours of kick-off.

Villa’s plan is subject to approval being granted for the next stage of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown. A decision on that is expected to be made on Monday, May 10.

Every match at Villa Park has been played without supporters present since the outbreak of the pandemic. The last match with a crowd at the stadium was Villa’s 3-2 defeat to Tottenham on February 16, 2020.
