Aston Villa Football Club is an English professional football club based in Aston, Birmingham. The club was founded in 1874 and has a long and storied history, having won the European Cup (now known a... s the UEFA Champions League), the First Division (now known as the Premier League) seven times, and the FA Cup seven times. Aston Villa currently plays in the Premier League, the top tier of English football. Aston Villa's kits have traditionally featured the colors claret and blue in the form of a claret body and blue sleeves. This traditional look gets combined with white shorts, and sky blue socks. Recently, the club's alternative shirts follow a more experimental approach, both in terms of colours and design. The team's crest, which features a shield with a lion rampant and the club's initials, is also featured on the kit. The kits are manufactured by Kappa. Some of the club's notable players include Jack Grealish, Ollie Watkins, and Tyrone Mings.
