Aston Villa announce plans to change club crest

Aston Villa have announced plans to change the club's crest.

The club said in a statement:

"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 too.

"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 colours as powerfully as possible to represent our modern-day club with such a rich heritage."
