Aston Villa confirm three fixtures in US Summer Tour

Aston Villa have confirmed three pre-season fixtures in their summer tour of the United States of America. 

The Premier League outfit will start their US campaign by taking on MLS Champions Columbus Crew on Saturday, July 27 at Field. 

A match-up with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig is scheduled to take place at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey on Wednesday, July 31 before their final friendly against Liga MX Champions Club America at the Windy City’s Soldier Field on Saturday, August 3. 

Villa’s 2024 pre-season schedule will begin on Wednesday, July 17 when they take on League Two side Walsall. 

The West Midlands outfit will then be in action against Spartak Trnava on Saturday, July 20 at the Anton Malatinsky Stadium. Football fans can gather all the information regarding other preseason fixtures for Premier League clubs.  

Following their US tour, Unai Emery’s men will go head-to-head with Athletic Bilbao at the Poundland Bescot Stadium on Wednesday, August 7 before travelling to Germany for their final pre-season friendly with Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday, August 10. 

Aston Villa have seen a great revival in their fortunes since Unai Emery took over the club as manager in November 2022. 

They were battling relegation when Steven Gerrard was at the helm of affairs, but the Spaniard inspired a series of excellent results to guide them to a seventh-place finish. 

And last season, Emery secured them Champions League football for the first time in more than 40 years with a fourth-place Premier League finish.
