Villans Abroad: Brett Bates – Toronto, Canada

In our debut All Villans episode, Roisin and Frankie speak to the chairman of the Toronto Lions, Brett Bates.

Brett is a lifelong Villa fan from Birmingham who moved to Toronto, Canada. He tells us about his regular meet-ups with the Lions to watch Villa games and the close links they have with Villans all over North America, which includes a yearly gathering of the various fan groups. Brett also explains the fundraising done by the Toronto Lions for the Birmingham-based charity, Acorns, a partner of Aston Villa.
