So here we go, it was the official launch of the kits today and I must say Villa did a great job at staging a really enjoyable event. I was also told by the chief of marketing what a great job and great assistance the ICC were, always nice to know they support the club in such a way.

So…

And the highlight of my day, to be in the presence of Voiceoftheholte… he was VIP… my pass was ‘let him in otherwise he’ll moan… or press, or something’ !

Other Villa sites, if you want to replicate the images or use the properties to embed, feel free.

Personally think Villa did us proud in the City today… love being part of this club…! Even the weather stayed nice, it rained before, it rained after, but during… not a drop (well, there were a few drops but you get my drift!)
