The Aston Villa Supporters Trust is astounded by the fine that the FA have imposed on the club following the events of our FA Cup Quarter Final victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Your essential guide on getting to Wembley

The stadium has been labelled as a ‘public transport’ destination, meaning that there is limited parking available at the stadium itself and there is also a residents only parking scheme in operation in the local area. Bookings can be made on the official website www.wembleyofficialparking.com though parking is expensive at £30. However, a more economic option is available via www.justpark.com where you can park for as little as £10 by using a local resident’s driveway. The stadium is well signposted from the end of the M1…
