Watford looking to move away from Vicarage Road?

Watford looking to move away from Vicarage Road?

Saturday 7th March 2020

Watford could be looking to move away from Vicarage Road after designs of what their new stadium could look like were released.

The new ground would be built around 1.5 miles east of the town centre on Bushey Hall Golf Club.

Little is known about the plans other than the renderings below, but we do know that the club recently hired a consultancy firm to explore their options regarding where the club plays.

Also on the table is a £40m expansion to Vicarage Road, taking the capacity up to 32,000.

The Premier League club have also submitted a planning application to add an extra 500 seats between the Sir Elton John Stand and Rookery End. This would take Vicarage Road's capacity to 22,000.
