Trust | This Girl Can

Saturday June 3 to Sunday June 11

Be Inspired – Get Active

As part of the ‘This Girl Can in Herts’ week, Watford Football Club's Community Sports and Education Trust is proud to support the Herts Sports Partnership’s campaign that supports Sport England’s national initiative to encourage more women and girls to be active.

This year the campaign wants to encourage all those mums, grans, sisters, cousins, aunties and friends who might just need a nudge.

This Girl Can aims to help women and girls whatever their shape, size and ability to overcome the fear of judgement that may be stopping them from joining in. The new campaign for 2017 focuses on the confidence, resilience and belonging that comes from taking part in sport.

In celebration of the week, the Trust welcomes all abilities to a free pilot Soccercise Session on Wednesday 7th June 7-8pm.

The ‘get fit with football’ inspired session will take place at Hertfordshire Sports Village, De Havilland Campus, Hatfield AL10 9EU.

For more information and what to do if you can’t make the event, please contact Laura Dyer at 01923 496351 or laura.dyer@watfordfc.com.

The Trust will also be running lunchtime clubs and PE classes throughout the week at Westfield Academy, Elizabeth’s Girls’ School, Ark School, Longdean School and at Watford Grammar School for Girls.

Accessibility | Season Ticket Relocation

As has been detailed in previous communication and notices, the Hornets are respectfully reminding some Season Ticket holders that they will be allocated a new location for their ST seat, due to it falling within an area of the stadium where accessibility improvement works are taking place.

Emails have been sent to those affected detailing their new seating positions. 
Should you wish to discuss alternative options with regards to your seat relocation, be this in the same tier of the same stand or maybe somewhere else entirely within the stadium, you are welcome to contact us during an Exclusive Seat Movement Window for those being forced to relocate.
This window opens on Thursday June 1 and closes on Monday June 5. The exact timings are as follows:

Thursday June 1, 9am-5.30pm
Friday June 2, 9am-5.30pm
Saturday June 3, 10am-4pm
Sunday June 4 CLOSED
Monday June 5, 9am-5.30pm
Please call 01923 223023 or visit the Vicarage Road Ticket Office in person. Given the nature of the enquiries, relocation requests cannot be conducted via email or via the web.
Please be advised that we expect Thursday June 1 to be especially busy with enquiries and it may take some time for our specialist Ticket Office team to serve you.
Given the circumstances of any move, no relocation admin charge will apply throughout the Exclusive Seat Movement Window. In addition, if you move into a different stand (notably the Sir Elton John Stand and Upper Graham Taylor Stand), you will be able to do so at no extra cost for the 2017/18 season. If you wish to renew in this same seat for the 2018/19 season, you will be expected to pay the relevant renewal amount.
After the exclusive period, there will then be a General Seat Movement Window, running between June 7 and June 9, to allow other Season Ticket holders the chance to explore relocation options should they so wish (one-off £10 admin charge applies).
If you require any further information, please call 01923 223023 between now and the end of Wednesday May 31.
The club would like to thank supporters for their understanding in this matter.
