About Us

AVFC California is an official supporters club of Aston Villa Football Club.  We are all rabid supporters of the Villa and reside in Northern California.

Originally AVFC California was a single statewide branch (est. 2009), but as the club grew, additional branches have formed by some of our original members.   These are the San Diego Lions Club, Los Angeles Lions Club, and the San Joaquin Valley Lions Club.

Members join together to view Villa games televised in the U.S. and some even make the trip to Birmingham, UK to watch our beloved Claret and Blue in-person at Villa Park!  Our California meeting location is The Mad Dog in the Fog in San Francisco.

Hollywood Actor Tom Hanks is an invited Honorary Member of AVFC California!
