Aston Villa F.C. (affectionately known as West Midlands Village in various editions of the PES series) are an English Premier League side that can be used in the PES series. The club has been available to use in each game of the series since PES 2 (in which they were inexplicably named Dublin). They play with a home strip of claret and light blue shirts, white shorts and light blue socks which is similar to West Ham's home kit.
 PES 2
They appeared as an unlicensed team named Dublin.
 PES 3 - 2013
They appeared as an unlicensed team named West Midlands Village.
During Martin O'Neill's reign as manager, Aston Villa were a great counter-attacking side with a solid defensive base. Brad Friedel was excellent in goal, Richard Dunne and James Colllins formed a great centre-back pairing, with Luke Young and Stephen Warnock as the full-backs. There was a strong central midfield pairing of Gareth Barry, (later James Milner), and Stiliyan Petrov, with pacing wingers Ashley Young and James Milner, (later Stewart Downing), on the flanks. There was also the incredibly quick Gabriel Agbonlahor and target-man John Carew up front. This squad was widely considered one of the best outside of the top-four in the Premier League.
However, several players have since departed the club including the manager. Aston Villa are now a team built-around the club's rising stars. There are a few experienced players in the side such as Shay Given, Richard Dunne and Darren Bent, but former key players Ashley Young, James Milner and Stewart Downing have all departed the club for top sides. The current team of Aston Villa has many rising stars from their academy including Barry Bannan, Marc Albrighton, Nathan Baker, Chris Herd, Gary Gardner and Andreas Weimann, they all have decent development curves in Master League.
