The Premier League (PL) club, Aston Villa FC (AVFC) have announced a strategic partnership with Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company (CMBC), a brewing powerhouse in the UK.

As per the pact, CMBC has been named the club’s official lager and cider partner, offering its extensive beverage portfolio throughout Villa Park starting from the 2024/25 season. Spectators can expect to enjoy a wide selection of drinks, including Carlsberg Pilsner, Birrificio Angelo Poretti, Somersby Cider, 1664 and Brooklyn Pilsner.

In addition, CMBC will play a crucial role in the ongoing refurbishment of Villa Park’s kiosks and hospitality facilities.
