Aston Villa crowned Premier League Grounds Team of the Season

The Premier League named Aston Villa as the winners of the Grounds Team of the Season award for 2023/24.

Determined by a number of factors, the Grounds Team of the Season Award takes into account the amount of usage, environmental conditions, assessment of resources and management, marks given by the Referees and Match Delegates at each fixture. Independent sports turf experts also conduct a pitch-quality inspection to ensure all criteria are met.

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, led by Karl Prescott, had their approach to innovation and sustainability praised, scoring highly in this area as a result of reducing their use of fungicides and consideration of adapting machinery to perform bespoke tasks.
