Prince William Reveals Why He Supports Aston Villa

Family Affinity?

Prince William, a passionate football fan and President of the FA, has finally opened up about his surprising allegiance to Aston Villa.

Despite not having any ties to Birmingham and no family history of supporting Villa, the prince shared the real reason behind his support during a recent conversation with lifelong Wrexham fans.

Emotional Connection

Prince William explained, "A good friend took me to my first game when I was young, and it was when Paul Merson was playing for them. When they got relegated, it only solidified my support for the team, even though it's emotional and painful."

In a previous interview, he mentioned that he didn't want to follow the crowd by supporting popular teams like Chelsea or Manchester United. Instead, he wanted a team that could provide more unpredictable and emotionally intense experiences, leading him to choose Aston Villa.

Family Outing

In October 2019, Prince William even took his entire family to watch Aston Villa play against Norwich City, showing his continued dedication to the club.
