Supporters are advised to collect their tickets at least 60-minutes before kick-off to pass through security checks and enter the stadium in time.
Disabled supporters should aim for the ‘Vicarage Roadie’ Information Point next to the Hornets Shop. Supporters should then approach Watford’s ‘Vicarage Roadies’ match day meet and greet team, who are dressed in bright green hi-vis jackets and will be stationed outside the stadium from at least 90 minutes before kick off. The ‘Roadies’ team will be happy to escort supporters to the appropriate accessible entrances and on to the away sections of the stadium.
We strongly advise those supporters using pitch side wheelchair positions and their personal assistants to arrive no later than 45 minutes before kick-off to avoid any delays, as entry is through another stand and may take some time.
