New affiliates join AVST: Brigada and Claret & Blue Army

AVST are pleased to announce Brigada 1874 and the Claret & Blue Army Fan Forum have joined us as affiliates.


Brigada 1874 are an ultra group who follow Aston Villa with the aim of offering unconditional support for the team and bringing colour and noise back to the Holte End. They believe that fan culture can only be cultivated at a grass roots level and that the excesses of modern football have marginalised many fans from the game. We look forward to working with Brigada on supporter issues like Safe Standing and the Twentys Plenty campaign, as well as increasing the atmosphere at Villa Park. Their website can be found here.

Claret & Blue Army is a newly created fans forum and wanted to become affiliated with the Trust to add their collective voice behind our initiatives and aims. The forum has its website at and they have a  Twitter feed @CBArmyFanForum. We look forward to working with their forum in promoting initiatives and getting thoughts, ideas and constructive feedback.

Welcome to the collective voice!

If you have a supporters club, fan website or facebook page, then join us an affiliate to increase the collective voice of the fanbase.
