Yesterday afternoon, Aston Villa confirmed the speculation that Kappa would become our Principal Partner and new shirt manufacturer for the coming 2019/20 campaign.
Whether we find ourselves in the Championship still, or return to our rightful place in the Premier League will be decided by 90 minutes this coming Monday as we face Derby County in the second tier Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.
We are delighted to announce @Kappa_UK as our Principal Partner. ????

The Italian sportswear company have signed a three year deal with the club seeing them through initially until 2022 and they will provide the kit and training wear for the first team, development, junior sides and our Ladies’ teams.
With a 60 year history, they are certainly an iconic name in the game but that doesn’t mean fans haven’t been mixed as for those who hark on about nostalgia, others simply remember certain tracksuits and those associations.

All that matters really is what division are we playing in, and what do the kits look like!
