Secure your seat at Villa Park as Martin O’Neill’s team look forward to more famous cup nights such as the thrilling 6-4 Carling Cup semi-final win over Blackburn Rovers.

The Cup Scheme, which is open to season card holders only, ensures hassle-free cup ticket purchases.

The club charges your credit or debit card and sends you paper tickets for home cup-ties automatically.

Joining now means your first cup game at Villa Park is free.

Supporters who sign-up to the Cup Scheme will not be charged for the first home cup tie as long as they remain within the scheme for a minimum of THREE home cup fixtures.

The deadline for this buy three get the first free offer was Monday May 31 – but it has now been extended to June 14.

The offer has already proven very successful and we want to make sure as many season card holders as possible get a chance to sign up.

Season card holders who miss the latest deadline can STILL apply to join the Cup Scheme at any time.

Remember, the Cup Scheme cover all HOME FA, Carling Cup and European competitions.

Must admit, I always do this, so much easier than having to ring up or go to Villa to get the cup tickets. Also guarantees you ‘your’ seat. I remember years back being played off the park, Blackburn Rovers I think (?) in a cup game. We used to have cup voucher books in those days and I got so cheesed off I ripped mine up and threw it pitchwards (not as dramatic as it sounds, I sit on the front row)… Then I started to wonder, what happens if we get back and win this (think we were about 4 down at the time so not much chance) I can imagine ringing the ticket office

‘hi, I’ve lost my cup voucher scheme book, can you send another’

‘yes, certainly, where did you last see it?’

‘err, in about 30 bits on the Villa pitch!’

Ahem. Disgrace!
