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.

Silva Named Hornets' Head Coach

Watford Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Marco Silva as Head Coach.
 
The 39-year old, who has experience of managing in Portugal, Greece and most recently in England with Hull City, has signed a two-year deal at Vicarage Road.
 
A title-winner in Greece with Olympiacos, he’d previously led Sporting to a third-place finish in Portugal in 2014 and delivered their first trophy – the Portuguese Cup – since 2008.
 
Early managerial experiences were gained at Estoril, where he guided the club to promotion and a place in Portugal’s top-flight.
 
The Greek Super League triumph in 2016 came with six games to spare, with Silva having earlier in that campaign led his team to victory at Arsenal in a UEFA Champions League match.
 
Chairman and CEO Scott Duxbury said of the appointment: “Marco was one of the most sought after Head Coaches in the Premier League.

"His pedigree and promise speaks for itself with his achievements in top divisions elsewhere across Europe, as well as his work at Hull City last season."
 
“We are delighted to have secured his services and to be welcoming a Head Coach of his profile and potential,” he added.
 
“It’s an exciting time to be a Watford fan, and I’m sure all supporters will join me in offering Marco and his family the warmest of welcomes to Vicarage Road.”
