Aston Villa have been named the Premier League Grounds Team of the Season for 2023/24.


The Grounds Team of the Season Award is determined by a number of factors, including amount of usage, environmental conditions, assessment of resources and management, marks given by the Referees and Match Delegates at each fixture, and a pitch-quality inspection conducted by independent sports turf experts.

The pitch at Villa Park was commended for its exceptional quality throughout the season despite a high number of women’s and European fixtures as well as the 19 Premier League matches.

In addition, the grounds team at  Villa scored highly for innovation and sustainability, having reduced their use of fungicides and adapted machinery to perform bespoke tasks.

The team led by Karl Prescott received their award on Monday ahead of the match against Liverpool.
