Home Tickets | Leicester & Swansea Update

Tickets purchased for Watford's two home games over the Christmas period - Leicester on Tue Dec 26 and Swansea on Sat Dec 30 (both 3pm KO) - will be sent out via post as long as they are bought before 4pm on Thursday December 21.

Any bookings made after that time will need to be collected from the Vicarage Road Ticket Office, which is open on Saturday December 23 and Sunday December 24 from 10am until 2pm.

It will then reopen at 9am on Boxing Day ahead of the Leicester City fixture.

The Ticket Office advises all supporters planning to collect tickets on the Leicester and/or Swansea matchdays to arrive as early as possible to avoid delays in the approach to kick-off.

If you're a Season Ticket holder who can't make the Leicester game, Ticket Exchange is now open and allows you to free up your seat for a fellow Watford fan while earning a discount on your 2018/19 Season Ticket renewal.

Chamberlain | “Thank You”

What a fantastic Watford FC career it has been for Alec Chamberlain.

Close to 300 appearances, two promotions and two Player of the Season awards all spread over the past 20 years, 11 as a player and 10 as a coach.

The former shot stopper is departing Vicarage Road and is doing so with many, many fond memories. A true fan favourite throughout his time at the club, Chamberlain soon made the fans forget his former spell with that club up the M1.

“Nigel Gibbs forgave me when I came here which was the first step I had to get over and he nicknamed me born again Hornet, so if Nigel can forgive then everyone hopefully can, which they did and I’m very grateful for that.” Chamberlain explained.

The Cambridgeshire born keeper was welcomed onto the pitch at half-time during the match against Huddersfield Town to say goodbye to the fans who held him in such high esteem over his two decades with the club. 

Before he departed, Chamberlain, accompanied by his two children Natasha and Ryan, had a few words to say to the fans in attendance.

“I just want to thank them for all the support over the years, I’ve had an amazing 21 years here and I look forward to seeing you all again in the future.”
