Watford visiting supporter information
news Tue 2 Feb 2016
Watford FC have provided the following information regarding ongoing construction works at Vicarage Road, to assist supporters attending Wednesday evening’s match:
Due to a landslip between Milton Keynes and London Euston, trains cannot run on as many railway lines as normal through the affected area and there is likely to be disruption throughout the day on Wednesday. Supporters travelling to Watford on London Midland and Southern train services are advised to allow extra travelling time to avoid missing kick-off.
There are currently temporary turnstiles in operation at Vicarage Road and this may well cause delays on entering the stadium as a result. Turnstiles open 75 minutes before kick-off and we would advise that you arrive no later than 30-minutes before kick-off to avoid any delays.
Supporter Meeting Point
The officially designated ‘away’ pub is The Oddfellows, 14 Fearnley Street, WD18 0RD.
Visiting Disabled Supporter Access
Disabled supporters should aim for the Red Lion Corner on the junction of Vicarage Road itself and Oxford Street. For reference, the Red Lion is a disused pub opposite the away turnstiles. Supporters should then approach Watford’s ‘Vicarage Roadies’ match day meet and greet team, who are dressed in bright green jackets and will be stationed outside the pub from 6pm onwards on the day. The ‘Roadies’ team will then escort supporters to the accessible entrance and on to the away seats. We advise that supporters using wheelchairs and their personal assistants arrive no later than 45-minutes before kick-off to avoid any delays, as entry is through another stand and may take some time..
Away Section Concourse
There will be no alcohol for sale inside the away section on match day, due to limited concourse space.
Wiggenhall Road closure
Due to the building of a new access road for the hospital next door to the stadium, Wiggenhall Road is currently closed to southbound traffic. As a result, the area is heavily congested. Visiting supporters are advised to avoid this route and use the multi-storey car parks around the Town Centre Ring Road.
Watford have also supplied an away fans’ guide which can be downloaded below.
