Aston Villa stars visit Fiat Professional

Aston Villa football stars Alan Hutton and Eric Lichaj recently visited the CV Show at Birmingham's NEC in order to check out the Fiat Professional stand.

The Premier League pros took time out of their busy end of league schedule to see the new Fiat Scudo Panorama eight-seater, which the Birmingham-based club will be using as a minibus for the new season.

Fiat also provides passenger cars to the club as part of its commercial dealings with the club, which it works with out of admiration for its long-standing presence in the community.

Villa was formed in 1874 and was a founding member of the Football League ten years later, while Fiat has been making cars since starting out in a Turin factory since 1899.

Welcoming the visit from the current squad members, Sebastiano Fedrigo, director, Fiat Professional, said: "I am delighted that Alan and Eric were able to come and view the new minibus.

"This is a hugely successful partnership with one of England's most famous football clubs and I am sure the vehicles we supply will be extremely useful to them as they move towards the end of the season."
