Vicarage Road Stadium History

It has been the home of Watford since 1922, when the club moved from Cassio Road. The ground was officially opened by Colonel Charles Healey of Benskins Brewery for a visit from Millwall on 30 August 1922.

As well as being the home of Watford since its opening, the stadium was also the home of Wealdstone FC between 1991 and 1993, and the Saracens rugby team from 1997 until they moved into their new home at Copthall Stadium in North London in February 2013.

After purchasing freehold of the stadium from Benskins in January 2002, Watford’s financial situation forced them to sell and lease the stadium later that year. However, after a campaign titled ‘Let’s Buy Back The Vic’ with donations from fans, as well as celebrity former owner Elton John donating all proceeds from a concert held at the venue, the club was able to buy back the stadium in September 2004.

On 1 September 2011 it hosted England under-21’s 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship Group 8 qualifying match against Azerbaijan under-21. The hosts thrashed the visitors 6-0 with braces from Craig Dawson and Henri Lansbury and unique goals from Jordan Henderson and Martyn Waghorn. 7,738 attended.
