About Vicarage Road Stadium
The stadium has been the home of Watford FC since 1922, when Watford FC moved from their former ground Cassio Road, and it has a capacity of 22,200. The club purchased the freehold of the stadium in January 2002, but was forced to sell it again later that year. A campaign backed by fans - including former owner Elton John, who donated the proceeds of a concert held in the grounds - was launched, ‘Let’s Buy Back The Vic’, to help Watford become stadium owners again. The campaign was successful, and Watford was able to buy the stadium back in September 2004.
