Signed item policy

Watford FC receive a very high volume of requests for signed footballs and shirts, especially since promotion to the Premier League. As a result, our policy is to request that you purchase or supply the shirt/footballs in the first instance. We also request that a donation of £50 is given to the Watford FC Community Sports and Education Trust for any item that Watford FC have agreed to be signed by the Watford FC squad. 

Once payment has been received by either a cash, credit/debit card payment or cheque, the Club will organise for the item to be signed within a maximum of six weeks. We will also provide a certificate of authenticity for any item signed. We can only allow one item to be signed within a 12-month period, and the item must not be sold or placed on any auction sites.

For further information please contact Alex Ashby ( or Dave Messenger (
