1881 Section

The club wishes to give notice that seats contained within the Rookery Stand Block RS2 Rows G-X Seats 77-104 inclusive (total 476 seats) will be deemed as being within the ‘1881 Section’ of the stadium from the 2019/20 season onwards. 

Supporters who wish to relocate to this 1881 Section should renew in their current seat and then indicate their preference for this move by emailing (using subject line Singing Section). 

Supporters who currently sit within the block of seats above but do not wish to be part of the Singing Section should renew as normal in their current seats. The Ticket Office team will be calling out to all Season Ticket holders within the 476 seats to confirm if they wish to remain where they are. If they do not, first priority for alternative accommodation will be given (and any extra charge for higher-priced stands which would normally apply would be waived on a one-off basis). 


Having made mention of the matter of Season Ticket holders not coming to home fixtures in recent years’ Terms & Conditions, analysis of attendance data from recent years has helped us reach the position where we will – from Season Ticket renewals in Spring 2020 – reserve the right to refuse renewals to those supporters who most regularly don’t attend AND don’t advise us of their non-attendance.

Exact details of how this will be managed during 2019/20 will be communicated to Season Ticket renewers after the renewals windows close. 


We offer our grateful thanks in advance for your continued loyal support, both for the rest of this season and looking forward to an exciting time ahead in 2019/20!

Janmaat: “We Changed & Felt More Comfortable”

Watford defender Daryl Janmaat said the half-time changes made by Javi Gracia were essential to the Hornets claiming a point against Southampton on Tuesday night.

After Shane Long scored the fastest goal in Premier League history to put the visitors ahead, the Golden Boys found themselves thwarted by a resilient visiting rearguard throughout the first half.

That led to some choice words and some changes at the interval. And the changes helped put Watford back in the ascendancy, and resulted inAndre Gray scoring a late equaliser.

“In the end if you can’t win, don’t lose,” said the former Newcastle full-back. “I think it is a good point.

“With the early goal, we had to try and forget it because it is the first seconds of the game. We had to go for it.

“In the first half it was difficult for us – Southampton played better. [At half-time] people were frustrated. We couldn’t really get into the duels and we’d lost a lot of challenges, so we had to do that better. But in the second half we changed the system and we felt more comfortable.

“In the end it’s a deserved point, and maybe with a bit more luck we could have got more [after the equaliser]. But I think we can be happy.”

Attention now switches to the Hornets’ third game in eight days. The match against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Vicarage Road sees a replay of the dramatic FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, and a chance to put some daylight between Watford and a side just two points behind them in the Premier League table.

“We both want to finish seventh,” added Janmaat. “There are a few other teams [fighting for seventh] as well. It’s a really massive game for both teams.”
