THERE'S been plenty to get excited about courtesy of Gianfranco Zola's squad over the past season or so, and the commitment from Hornets' fans has been simply staggering, with exactly 12,000 supporters now holding a Vicarage Road Season Ticket.
The 12,000th 2013/14 Season Ticket was sold in the days leading up to Saturday's Wigan Athletic match.
Exciting, attacking football was Zola's stated aim in his early months with the Golden Boys, and the style of play - allied, of course, to positive results - has clearly captured the imagination of renewing ST holders as well as new appilcants, many of whom were lapsed from previous seasons.
Watford FC has this weekend suspended Season Tickets for 2013/14, however fans are welcome to add themselves to a Season Ticket Waiting List, by either calling the Ticket Office Hotline (01923 223023) or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 12,000 Season Ticket holder figure is the highest ever recorded by the club for a season outside of the top-flight, and - in terms of campaigns during the past decade or so - is second only to the 2006/07 Premier League year.
Football League regulations dictate that all clubs must leave a percentage of stadium capacity for match-to-match sales, and demand among match buyers has been unrelenting too. The Hornets' Ticket Office are seeing the best of what's available on a game-to-game basis getting snapped up quickly as soon as a home League match becomes available for sale.
Home areas have sold out or all but sold out for all home League games so far this campaign, with some healthy away followings pushing attendance figures well over the 16,000 mark.
Although East Stand development will increase the home ticket sales capacity by around 3,000, the advice is still the same if fans are not holding a Season Ticket: please buy as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
