With a capacity of 22,200, Vicarage Road is the 17th-largest ground in the Sky Bet Championship this season.

Away fans will be seated in the Vicarage Road Stand, using turnstiles 14-15 and 16-19. This stand is shared with home supporters. All fans entering the Stadium will be searched.

Watford Football Club operates a Zero Policy regarding pitch incursions, the use of pyros and Anti-Social Behaviour in general. Any fan who is ejected will be handed to the Police and they will take the appropriate action. Last season twelve fans were all found guilty in the Courts, and they all received four year banning orders.

If you experience or witness any form of discriminatory or offensive behaviour, please do not hesitate to anonymously text 07484 070422 with the row and seat number of the offender, followed by the nature of the problem.
