Due to the club’s partnership with Event Support Team (EST), fans are able to reserve parking spaces in the Field Junior School, Ascot Road Primary School or Holywell Primary School car parks on a match-by-match or seasonal basis, by clicking HERE.

There is no parking available at the ground and street parking is restricted for local residents with matchday permits. Watford General Hospital ensure that their security and parking staff monitor the entrances to the hospital car parks to prevent people from parking on-site.

Where the need for personal support has been identified, the club will admit the personal assistant free of charge on the understanding that they are providing a service to the disabled supporter to enable them to access matchday facilities. The club requires the disabled person and their PA to enter the ground together and sit together. The personal assistant must be in possession of a mobile phone and be able to communicate effectively with those in the vicinity. They must also be physically able to support the disabled person in the event of an emergency. You will be offered a free personal assistant admission if you are in receipt of middle or higher-rate components of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (P.I.P.), however proof of eligibility may be required before tickets are issued. Other forms of proof may be accepted, please contact

Turnstiles will open 90 minutes before kick-off. In order to meet our security obligations, we advise that you arrive no later than 45 minutes before kick-off to avoid any potential delays. All supporters will be searched prior to entry into the ground.
