Aston Villa Football
Members of the Villa Cross Wesleyan Chapel in Aston, Birmingham, formed Aston Villa in 1874. The Aston Villa cricket team were looking for a way to stay fit during the winter months and decided to adopt the new sport of football. The Villa play their home games at Villa Park, Trinity Road, Birmingham.
Aston Villa wear a distinctive claret and sky blue top, due to the Villas early success as a fooball club West Ham and Burnley went on to adopt these colours for their teams kit. It is said that the colours were chosen because they reflected the clubs attitude to drinking red wine whilst admiring the sky behind the glass.
The club record for a signing was £9.5 million to River Plate (Argentina) for Juan Pablo Angel who pulled on the Villa strip in January 2001. The claret and blues highest transfer fee earned was £12.6 million, when Dwight Yorke went to Manchester United in August 1998.
