18 January 2019

Watford FC would like to welcome all travelling supporters to Vicarage Road Stadium this weekend for the Watford vs Burnley fixture on Saturday 19th January

Below is information you may need before your journey, including details on transport and parking, as well as a Vicarage Road Stadium plan, and information on where you can get your hands on the matchday programme.

To read the full visiting supporters guide, please click HERE.

Turnstiles will open 90 minutes before kick-off. In order to meet our security obligations, we advise that supporters 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. Alcohol will only be served in the away supporters section of the stadium until 45 minutes before kick-off, as a result of the limited concourse space.

"Scarves for GT"
Hornets supporters will mark the second anniversary of Graham Taylor’s passing by once again turning Vicarage Road into a sea of scarves ahead of this Saturday’s game against Burnley. 

Fans in all stands are asked to bring a scarf to the game and we invite Burnley fans to join us by holding them aloft when the opening bars of Z-Cars start playing, keeping them displayed while the players walk out on the pitch.

In order to do so, we politely request that you please take your seats by 2.50pm.

There is no parking available for fans at the ground and street parking is restricted for local residents with matchday permits.

Watford town centre has several car parks, the easiest of which for access to Vicarage Road is Church Car Park (WD18 0JD) on the inside of the ring-road, opposite the turn-off into Vicarage Road.

Train & Tube
The nearest station is Watford High Street, a 10-minute walk away from the ground. Watford Junction train station is about a 20-minute walk. Watford also has its own London Underground tube station, which is on the Metropolitan Line and is situated just under one mile from Vicarage Road.

Vicarage Roadies
The Vicarage Roadies are here to meet and greet supporters coming to Watford Football Club on match days. We are a team of volunteer Watford fans who aim to enhance the supporter experience by offering advice and support to all visitors to Vicarage Road. 

During your visit we hope you will get to meet and interact with some of our Roadie Team. Our team can be found on the approaches to and around Vicarage Road Stadium from at least 90 minutes before kick-off, and we have an information point at the North-East corner of the stadium. You’ll easily spot us dressed in our bright green ‘Roadie Jackets’ with cheerful smiling faces.

Bags and Luggage
We politely request that you avoid bringing large bags as these may not be allowed into the ground. A left luggage facility for cabin style luggage is available at the stadium, prior permission must be sought as space is limited and all luggage will be searched on arrival. Please contact for more details and to obtain permission.

Flags and Banners
Flags and banners are not allowed inside the stadium unless express permission has been granted by the Operations Manager
