Aston Villa News offers refreshingly honest, topical, and entertaining coverage of the Aston Villa Football Club. Founded in January 2019, Aston Villa News has been part of the GRV Media network of websites since then.
Our vision is to provide quality football news coverage of the beautiful sport we’re addicted to, and the teams we support through thick and thin.
Aston Villa News covers a variety of categories, including; analysis, club news, columnist pieces, match previews, player profiles, and much more. As time goes by, we expect to update our coverage to more clubs and topics within the Championship.
We always ensure accuracy in the news we cover, but our writers relish adding a flair of their own views into the mix – especially when it comes to questionable tactics, and dramatic events.
Aston Villa News is overseen by Vincent Ralph. You can get in touch with Vince at [email protected]. You can also contact us by visiting our Contact Us page. Additionally, you’ll find contact details of the wider GRV Media team on our company website’sContact Us page.
Our business rebranded as GRV Media in 2015, prior to which we were named after the launch website, HITC (Here Is The City). The rebrand coincided with a period of growth through launch and acquisition, and the company now comprises 20 owned-and-operated websites, social channels, and an advertising management business called PROP.
GRV Media’s own brands are focused on sport, entertainment and gaming. Together, our owned and operated websites reach around 30m visitors monthly and are trusted and followed by more than 1m Facebook users.
PROP, GRV Media’s tech arm, works with around 70 publishers worldwide to manage and maximise their advertising revenues.
The combined reach of the GRV network is over 150m visitors each month.
GRV Media remains owned and run by its founders – Vic Daniels (Co-Founder & Executive Chairman), Graham Morris (Co-Founder & CEO), and Robi Buckley (Co-Founder and Senior Developer).
The founders are supported by an experienced management team; find out more about them here.
GRV Media has proudly pioneered remote working since our inception in 2002. We operated successfully as a fully remote business for two decades prior to the pandemic.
Our London address for correspondence is 28 Ormiston Grove, London W12 0JT.

Like all digital publishers, we want to grow our audience, keep them engaged and entertained, and fund our operations effectively through advertising.
We pride ourselves on the speed, accuracy, and quality of the content we publish, across a wide range of topics. We are also proud to do this in ways that we think are right and decent – we do not, for example, seek clicks by publishing stories about celebrities that are unkind or hurtful.
We unequivocally do not carry advertising which promotes gambling. During the last 20+ years, GRV Media has been repeatedly approached about running gambling ads, and we have chosen to decline every time, believing this is the right thing to do for our website visitors.
At the core of the business is our team of around 90 talented journalists, who are valued and nurtured and whose individual contributions are celebrated.
We operate in a fast-paced environment, with ever-changing commercial pressures.
We value long-term relationships with our editorial teams, meaning that all of our writers are employees of GRV, with associated rights and benefits.
We believe this also maintains a higher standard of accountability and integrity journalistically, which is increasingly unusual in the freelance culture so often prevalent in digital publishing.
We believe in treating all our contractors, clients and partners with respect.
Above all, transparency and honesty are at the heart of our processes and communication.
Our publisher clients can be sure that we operate in an open manner, without the smoke and mirrors often associated with advertising technology.
We are also proud to have been among the first ad platforms to offer a near real-time dashboard and prompt net 30 days payment terms.
