But Villa Park has something else. Something unique.
That’s why the majority of Reds were pleased to see the Villains secure promotion back to the top flight on Sunday, after they beat Derby County 2-1 at Wembley in the Championship’s play-off final.
We’ve had some great trips to Derby in recent years, but they’ve been in cup competitions, where allocations are larger. And, with respect, Pride Park cannot match Villa Park. Not many places can.
You only need to take one look at the stairway that leads up to the famous facade at the front of the Holte End to know you’ve arrived at one of this land’s most evocative footballing venues.
The stadium was designed by the legendary Archibald Leith in the late 19th century, and has been the Villa’s home since 1897. The Midlanders are one of only five teams from this country to have won the European Cup (alongside United, Liverpool, Nottingham Forest and Chelsea), and they were one of the twelve founder members of the Football League in 1888.
