Paul Faulkner, Aston Villa Chief Executive Officer, said:
We’re delighted to be associated with this prestigious tournament and we look forward to hosting marquee matches involving two past winners in Australia and South Africa at Villa Park.
This is an iconic stadium which has hosted more FA Cup semi-finals than any other venue, along with major concerts and the Community Shield this season between Manchester City and Chelsea.
We look forward to putting on a show which will highlight the unique character of our wonderful stadium and also the distinctive character at the heart of the city of Birmingham.
