If you require more information regarding access or disabled requirements, please click here for the Access Statement. 

Stadium Entry
Turnstiles will open at 1.30 pm. In order to meet our security obligations, we advise that you arrive no later than 45 minutes before kick-off to avoid any potential delays. All supporters will be searched prior to entry into the ground.

Visiting Disabled Supporter Access
Disabled supporters should aim for the ‘Vicarage Roadie’ Information Point next to the Hornets Shop. Supporters should then approach Watford’s ‘Vicarage Roadies’ match day meet and greet team, who are dressed in bright green hi-vis jackets and will be stationed outside the stadium from 1pm onwards on the day. The ‘Roadies’ team will be happy to escort supporters to the appropriate accessible entrances and on to the away sections of the stadium.

Visiting supporters in wheelchairs are advised that there are two dropped kerbs along Vicarage Road itself, in front of the Hornets Shop on the East side of the stadium and next to the Hospital Access Road on the West side of the Stadium.

Supporter Meeting Point
The officially designated ‘away’ pub is The Oddfellows, 14 Fearnley Street, WD18 0RD.
