Vicarage Road, known to Hornets fans as The Vic, has been Watford’s home since the club moved from Cassio Road in 1922.

The two Main Stands are named after club legends, Sir Elton John and Graham Taylor, who were owner and manager during its most successful period.

The stadium opened a Sensory Room in December 2016 for supporters with Autism, who can watch the matches in a spacious room that blocks out the noise of fans in the stands.
