In the continued circumstances of football fixtures once again about to take place with no fans present, we wish to reassure you that Watford FC is preparing for the return of our supporters (at whatever percentage of Vicarage Road's capacity is deemed safe) as the 2020/21 campaign nears.
In doing so, we wish to set out arrangements to reassure you that our valued STH (Season Ticket Holders) are at the heart of our decisions relating to fans returning to The Vic.
With a full return for supporters clearly still some way off, we wish to offer all STH the chance to confirm they intend to purchase a 2020/21 Season Ticket. A refundable deposit payment of £20 per seat will secure your ST seat - giving first option over renewing when the opportunity arises. Note: ST 2019/20 credit held cannot be used against this deposit payment.
Once a date has been confirmed for a fully-open stadium, we will then publish pro-rata prices based on the number of 2020/21 home league fixtures remaining to be played. The £20 will be deducted from your renewal price, along with any credit balance we're holding for you against your 2019/20 Season Ticket purchase.
STH should be aware that, while this is a unique requirement, this refundable deposit does act as the first part of the renewal process for whenever STs are next made available for purchase. It applies per seat, regardless of location or pricing class.
To reiterate what was stated above, there will be one single renewal price for all current STH. Therefore Phase 2 buyers (post-2015 promotion) will be able to join Phase 1 renewers by purchasing for Season 2020/21.
The 'Secure Your Seat' offer is live from 10am today (Friday August 14) and can be accessed via the 'Secure Your Seat' specially-created event once you've logged in to your ticketing account online in the usual way at tickets.watfordfc.com - please be sure to check your account details are up-to-date and all STHs in your party are correctly linked.
This 'Secure Your Seat' purchase will not show any existing Season Ticket information.
The usual 'Seat Movement Window' will take place once the full ST renewals process has concluded.
The club's Ticket Office Team are happy to support you with any help you need; maybe a reminder about logging in or if you've not accessed the ticketing website before. Just give them a call on 01923 223023 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
