Vicarage Road, a stadium in Watford, Hertfordshire, England, is the home of the football club Watford of the Premier League. An all-seater stadium, its current capacity is 23,700 following the completion of the new Sir Elton John Stand in 2014, and expansion work in 2015 and again throughout 2016 and 2017, this includes the expansion of the football pitch.HistoryIt has been the home of Watford since 1922, when the club moved from Cassio Road. The ground was officially opened by Col. Charles Healey of Benskins Brewery for the visit of Millwall on 30 August 1922. In addition to being Watford's home since opening, the stadium was also home to Wealdstone F.C. between 1991 and 1993, and to rugby union side Saracens from 1997 until they moved to their new home at Allianz Park in February 2013.After purchasing the freehold of the stadium from Benskins in January 2002, Watford's financial situation forced them to sell and lease back the stadium later that year. However, after a campaign entitled 'Let's Buy Back The Vic' with donations coming from fans, as well as celebrity former owner Elton John donating the entire proceeds of a concert held at the venue, the club was able to repurchase the stadium in September 2004.Add Vicarage Road Stadium and other attractions to your Watford trip itinerary using our Watford vacation planner.

Best club, food and drinks an absolute rip off, I know fans say buy before you go, but would be nice not to get ripped off as we are the reason they are there

Well organised. Small selection if snacks and lager offered. Great place for football fans. Shame that the shop is very rarely stocked with kids kits.

Great for a day out. Ticket prices are VERY reasonable for a Premier League football team. Concessions are ok, totally overpriced but thats the nature of stadium food. Captive audience and all that.

The smallest and coziest prem atmosphere in London. Fans are friendly and welcoming to foreigners/Americans.
