Villa Legends Deliver Away Kit

Wed 9th Jul 2014 | Marketing & PR

Six Villa legends from the 1982 European Cup winning team - Gordon Cowans, Gary Shaw, Tony Morley, Kenny Swain, Ken McNaught and Colin Gibson - will be hitting the roads around Birmingham in six uniquely liveried DPD vans on Sunday July 13. 

Aston Villa’s Euro legends will personally deliver the club’s new away shirts to 100 lucky competition winners as part of a joint venture with DPD ahead of the launch of their new Sunday delivery service.

Russell Jones, Aston Villa’s Head of Marketing and Communications, said, “Our new away kit has more than a passing resemblance to the shirt the team wore for the 1982 European Cup final, so we thought it would be very special indeed to get the guys together again and create a bit of magic for our fans.

“As we are using DPD’s Predict service, fans will receive a notification the night before and will then be given a one-hour delivery slot so they aren’t hanging around all day.

“The notification from DPD will even tell them which legend will be delivering their shirt and they can then track their own legend on the DPD website as he makes his way around his route, all the way to their front door.

“As a result, we’re hoping fans will be able to get some family and friends round and make it a very special delivery!”

Dwain McDonald, DPD’s CEO said; “As a Stoke City fan I can certainly remember one very happy Sunday involving the Villa last season! But even I can appreciate that having a European Cup legend turn up on your doorstep with your new shirt is pretty cool!”
