Aston Villa set to change club crest

Premier League side Aston Villa have announced plans to change the club's crest to incorporate their 40th anniversary since lifting the European Cup.

The Midlands club has been going through a revamp and said in a statement that they were looking to make a few changes.

The statement said: "Last month marked the 40th anniversary of the biggest day in our club's history, lifting the European Cup. That day in '82 is the brightest moment of our past, but it's never been a more exciting time for our club to look forward to.

"After revisiting that great night in Rotterdam – the iconic shirts, the old club crest – Aston Villa is looking to review how we present ourselves visually in the future; this will include changing our current crest.

"We want to examine elements including the crest's shape, the way we showcase our unique name, and how we use our colors as powerfully as possible to represent our modern-day club with such a rich heritage."

Villa begins their preseason preps with a tie against Walsall on Saturday, July, 9th.
