FH Hafnarfjördur.
Possibly the most unpronounceable team we have ever played.



Probably the northern most ground we've played at.  Not many places you can go whale watching in the morning and watch the Villa in the afternoon.

It's six miles south of Reykjavik, so Valur would still be our most Northern opponents.

But match was played in Reykjavik - we went past their ground on the way - it was too small to host an international match.

Ah okay. Looks like both games were at the same stadium so equal furthest Northern game!

I've been trying and failing to think of the southern most stadium the Villa have played in!

Assume you mean in a competitive game? Have we played in Istanbul, if so I would guess there.

Tokyo is further South, so the World Club Cup wins. Also our most Easterly competitive game.

I'm assuming we have played friendlies in Australia and... maybe New Zealand?

For friendlies

Houston 2014? The Compass stadium thingy.

Further South (in the Northern hemisphere) than Turkey or Japan I think?

Nice Bennet header.

Thousands of Huddersfield fans will be able to watch the club's Premier League home games for just over £5 each thanks to a pledge made by the club's chairman seven years ago.

Dean Hoyle said in 2010 that fans who had held season cards during his time as chairman would pay £100 for the card if the club reached the top flight.

"Over 4,000 Town fans will receive mail from the club," a club statement said.

"This week, that pledge has been rolled out."

Huddersfield reached the top flight for the first time since 1972 by beating Reading on penalties in the Championship play-off final at Wembley last month.

Fans who qualified have the option to have a partial refund on their season card - which only cost £199 if bought by 6 April, a voucher worth £110 to spend in the club's shops, or donate their £99 refund to the Town Foundation charity, with Hoyle adding an extra £26 donation to top it up.

They are a class act Huddersfield, my brother worked with them and their chairman in the early days of Sporting Memories and the support they gave him and the charity was phenomenal. I was so pleased for them when they got promotion.
