In July, Aston Villa headed to the Lone Star State to play two pre-season friendlies with MLS teams (FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo). There was an amazing turnout by the Villa faithful from all parts of the U.S. and from around the globe. Funds were also raised for Acorns, Villa's charity partner. It was an amazing trip - I am hoping that Villa will be visiting the U.S. again sooner rather than later!
