Ahead of AFC Bournemouth’s trip to Aston Villa on Sunday for the FA Cup fourth round tie, we spoke to Vital Villa and Dorset Police about what to expect.
With a special thanks to DeanoVilla from Vital Villa who took the time to answer our questions.

Dorset Police have advised the following…
Any AFC Bournemouth fans travelling by train are advised to use Witton Train Station as this is the nearest to the away turnstiles and the 2 away friendly pubs near the stadium.
The 2 pubs that are happy to accept away fans are the Witton Arms and the Yew Tree Pubs. Please be aware there is a £2 entrance fee into the Witton Arms but this can accommodate upto 700 away fans, and is the most popular with away fans.
For fans travelling via private transport please use www.parkopedia.co.uk for parking locations and reviews around the stadium.
For fans drinking in the city centre pre-match all pubs welcome home and away supporters.
It is also important that coaches are made aware that a road closure will be in place around the stadium 1hr 15 mins prior to kick off, any coaches arriving after 1.45pm may not be able to take advantage of the free coach parking on the away coach park, as escorting through the road closure after this time does become problematic and dangerous.
Alcohol will be served to away fans located in the Lower Doug Ellis and North Stand Upper only as the upper Doug Ellis concession areas are too confined to consume alcohol in line with legislation.
