Distance is a bridge to gap with football. Especially for the Villans, the football aficionados of Aston Villa not living in England.
The distance of 10,000 miles already made it a pretty tough feat to follow everything about your team. Let alone when COVID-19 put these fans through the impossibility of travelling to Europe.
Aston Villa took care of their Japanese fans and we helped to cooperate on a special initiative. A fan meeting, a B-side of what already happened in March.
This time, fans met before the home match against Norwich City, which ended then in a 2-0 home win. Double-digits of fans gathered on Zoom to talk through their memories.
A chance of being together, sharing the football experience. Up the Villans!
