A brief history of the Vicarage Road Stadium

Home to the Watford Football Club since opening on 30th August 1922, Vicarage Road Stadium is one of Hertfordshire’s most firmly established sporting and entertainment venues. Vicarage Road Stadium, known by Hornet fans as “The Vic”, has the capacity to seat 22,200 people across four stands, one of which was named in honour of Watford F.C.  fan and former club chairman, Sir Elton John.
Today, Vicarage Road Stadium houses a range of exciting events, with many hospitality functions and conferences taking advantage of its stunning pitch views and state-of-the-art facilities.
