News: Kick It Out Podcast Now Available

Watford Football Club are pleased to support Kick It Out and promote their new podcast ‘Kick It Outcast’.

Using their unrivalled contacts and access to all aspects of the game we love, the pod will showcase the huge breadth of the work they do, and have done over the last 25 years.

The first four episodes - which are out now - feature conversations with key people who run football on their hopes for inclusion and equality in the game. They talk to coaches, campaigners, organisers and ex-players.

They go behind-the-scenes with Education Manager Troy Townsend as he speaks to players at Liverpool’s academy, hear a debate about whether new media is showing the press the way forward on diversity, and there’s an introduction to the “Game Changers” – the next generation of people who are tipped to be future leaders in football. 

Presented and produced by the Kick It Out team, these programmes are a must-listen for anyone who cares about the future of football.

You can download and listen to the show via iTunes or Acast.

Matchday Live: How To Listen In

Are you having trouble finding the audio commentary on watfordfc.com?

In case you're not aware, 'Hornets Player' live commentary was replaced by our own free service - 'Matchday Live' - in 2016/17.

Not only that, but a revamped Matchday Live has been brought in for the 2018/19 season to improve the speed and quality of content on offer.

As always, the club offers a live commentary service in partnership with BBC 3CR for those unable to make it to games. Commentary will be live roughly 15 minutes prior to kick-off for most games.*


For every regular game we will put Matchday Live as the main item on the top of the website (shown above). 

Once there, you'll be able to listen to the commentary using the 'Listen Now' button in the top-right corner (shown below).

*Unfortunately, in accordance with EFL broadcasting regulations we are not permitted to stream live commentary for Carabao Cup games, unless drawn against another Premier League side.

And, while you're waiting for the commentary to start, you can enjoy our pre-match updates; including quotes from the Head Coach and the players, your views from social media, and pictures and videos from around the game.

If you encounter any further problems finding our live commentary offering, contact us via: themediateam@watfordfc.com.
