Aston Villa have revealed that the Aston Villa tunnel will be revamped, with Paul Lambert recently discussing his input into the latest design. The tunnel has been given a glamours facelift that will motivate his young squad ahead of games at Villa Park. Three banners have been added that include some of Aston Villa’s greatest historic achievements. These include the European Cup victory in 1983 and all the years in which Villa have League Champions. All players will be greeted with the sign ‘This is Villa Park’. Villa’s symbolic “Lions” stand besides the two doors.
“The tunnel area is a big area,” said the manager.
“It has been done up now and it is fantastic. You see some of the history that there is at this club, what’s happened in the past. You can’t take that away from a club.”
Chief Executive Paul Faulkner added: “Paul Lambert is a man of high football standards.
“During the summer, he identified the tunnel as an area in need of enhancement. He wants it to be something special.
We’re confident it will really be a striking addition to the matchday experience for players and staff alike.”
The tunnel looks fantastic, I love the fact it’s got some symbolism behind it. Let’s hope it becomes one of the most memorable tunnels in the Premier League, similar to Anfields tunnel.
