Fans are advised to purchase match tickets in advance of matchday to avoid unnecessary queuing, and to arrive early to reduce congestion at the turnstiles.

i guess this means tickets are available on the day, but buying in advance is recommended

I wonder if the whole concourse will be open too? 

I have a ticket in the Dolman for tomorrow but normally enter via The Lansdown, after a pint in the sports bar, and walk under The South stand.

Can anyone confirm if this is possible tomorrow?

Vax Centre is still in the SS so concourses will still be enclosed

I'd have thought in the current climate it wouldn't as they may want to know who is in the ground etc

That said, the OS article suggests it will be it's just not preferred. I can't imagine it will be that high an attendence so makes sense to give people as much chance as possible to get a ticket

Wonder what sort crowd we will get ?

id like to think 10,000 but doubt it 

Very rare to get that amount for a friendly (not even a testimonial)

I'd have thought about 6k was more likely.

I'd probably have gone, but away until Sunday.

Villa will bring 2k+ but I still can't see this being over 6k.

just like every good football fans once the restrictions are eased and especially Villa is not to far from BS3 I would of estimated at least 4 to 5 K of support plus maybe 8K City fans so 14 K at least in total

Friend of mine is a Villa fan, he said they were only given a 1000 tickets which they have sold out

Sounds a bit weird to me. Even with social distancing 3 to 4K would be managed appropiately. the more away fans the better they spend money and bring atmosphere to BS3 the better

different times though, most fans havent had a chance to get to AG in 18 months. I guess some may just wait a week though

Villa sold 1,000 tickets, rest will no doubt watch it live on Villa TV for just £4.99 (must be awful coverage though compared to price of Robins TV, maybe filmed on a Nokia Phone?)

or buy tickets around the home sections which seems to be very popular

Friendly or not, first game back at AG since March 7th 2021, first game with fans at AG under Pearson- thought a few more might have been sold.

Aston Villa selling out their 1,000 in 7 mins is very impressive for a friendly!

Didn't we play Brentford on may the 8th?
