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.
