What's it like? Up to 2,500 away fans will be seated in both tiers of the Doug Ellis Stand at Villa Park, which is situated on the side of the pitch. There are TVs on the concourse that show past encounters between the two sides, giving supporters a chance to reminisce ahead of kick-off.
Pubs and grub - There are a number of pubs around Villa Park but most of which are for members only.
The Witton Arms (B6 6SN) charges £3 for entry, with half of the pub specifically for away fans (with a separate entrance). The Witton Arms is approximately a two-minute walk from the away entrance on Witton Island.
Meanwhile, the Yew Tree pub (B6 7AS) is roughly a 15-minute walk from the ground and costs £1 to enter.
Ruskin Hall Social Club (B6 5HP) costs £1 to enter and has six plasma screens and a large projector screen showing Manchester City against West Bromwich Albion from 12.45pm.
Parking costs £5 but there is also street parking available adjacent to the club, which is a ten-minute walk to the ground.
StarCity (B7 5SA), an entertainment complex, is just over a mile away from Villa Park. It is situated just off the M6 at J6, going towards Villa Park. StarCity has a free car park for 2400 cars, with plenty of food and drink outlets on offer.
Parking - Parking around the ground is mostly street parking so be wary of residents-only parking around the Witton roundabout area.
By train - A 15-minute trip from Birmingham New Street are Aston and Witton stations. Witton is nearer the away end, just a five-minute walk away. Turn left out of the station and go down to a roundabout. Turn left at the roundabout into Witton Lane and the away entrance is down this road. Aston station is a ten-minute walk from the ground. On matchdays, extra trains are put on to supply the demand.

Please be aware of major roadworks around junction 6 of the M6. This will prevent both Northbound and Southbound access to the M6 via the Salford Circus junction after the match.
