Matches About the stadium About the club League table

Watford is one of the smallest clubs in the Premier League, but what they lack in big sponsorship, they more than make up for with passion and support from all of their devoted fans. Did you know that Sir Elton John is a big fan? He grew up just about a mile from Watford and also owned the club for a while.

Vicarage Road - Watford FC

Vicarage Road is home to Pleamier League club Watford FC. With just 21,277 seats, it is one of the smallest 2016/2017 season arenas in the top division. In fact, it is only larger than Swansea Liberty (20,750 seats) and Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth (12,000 seats). Luckily for Watford, size doesn’t matter. The club doesn’t take their spot in the top division for granted, inspiring their fans to give them even more support and create a great atmosphere at ever game.

Vicarage Road’s History

Watford used to have to share the arena with Wealdstone FC (between 1991 and 1994), and with rugby club Saracens FC (between 1997 and 2012), but these days, they have Vicarage Road all to themselves.

Graham Taylor, who has twice lead the club, had a stand named after him in 2014. Previously, it was dedicated to FIFA president Sir Stanley Rous.

Elton John, who also has a stand named after him, may not have played for the team, or coached it. But what he hasn’t done for Watford on the pitch, he has made up for on the management level, and has even owned the club twice. He has also made some sizable contributions for renovating the arena, among other things.

The other two stands are the Rookery Stand and the Vicarage Road stand, where away team fans are normally seated.

Facts about Watford

Watford FC was founded in 1881, and was known as the Watford Rovers at the time. The first few years were spent in the lower divisions, and the club moved from arena to arena until entering the professional leagues in 1920. In 1922, Watford moved to Vicarage Road, which has been the home of the yellow shirts ever since. Watford FC has consistently brought home victories from some of the lower divisions, and in the 1982/1983 season, they got very close to the top, with a second place in the top division – what we call Premier League these days. The next year, during the 1983/1984 season, they also made it all the way to the FA Cup finals, but had to watch Everton grab the top spot. Today, the club are playing their second season in a row in the Premier League and are gradually becoming a stable of the British top division.
