Aston Villa has released a host of new CGI images to illustrate their vision for the future of Villa Park.
This comes as the club announces that they will submit a planning application for the redevelopment and expansion of the stadium at the end of August 2022.
The plans will pave the way to create a world-class sporting venue, enabling the club to compete at the very highest level, with an increased stadium capacity of over 50,000.
The move follows a public pre-planning application consultation that ran throughout June and July, in which nearly 10,000 residents and businesses, stakeholders and fans had their say on the plans.
Aston Villa CEO, Christian Purslow, said:
Following a successful consultation period, we are pleased to announce that we will be submitting our proposals for the redevelopment and expansion of Villa Park at the end of the month.
We have received a hugely positive response from the local community, our supporters and other stakeholders and are confident that this project will transform both the stadium and the local area.
These new CGI images showcase our spectacular vision for Villa Park which includes a brand-new commercial destination, Villa Live and high-quality public space for the community. We look forward to continuing to work with all partners to realise our future vision.

Aston Villa are proposing to increase the spectator capacity to over 50,000 and modernise the stadium to create a world-class sporting venue that can satisfy the growing demand and enable us to compete at the very highest level. The plans also set out our commitment to the local community, creating a destination that can be enjoyed all-year round.
The club’s ambitious plan to support the regeneration of the area will begin with an £100m+ investment in the first phase of improvements to Villa Park, with works estimated to take place late 2023 and construction completion toward the end of 2025.
The key areas of phase one involve:
- A brand-new North Stand wrapping into Trinity Stand
- Enhancements to the existing Trinity Stand
- The creation of Villa Live, a brand new standalone multi-use entertainment, community and retail venue destination
- Redevelopment of the Witton Lane entrance and the public space around the North Stand
