Watford expect total number of season tickets sold for the 2014/2015 campaign to reach 11,000 in coming days

Watford Observer: Season ticket sales closing in on 11,000 total Season ticket sales closing in on 11,000 total

Watford anticipate they will reach 11,000 season ticket holders in the coming days, a figure which will see the Hornets cap the number for the time being.

Supporters who want to purchase a 2014/2015 season ticket prior to the Watford FC Community Stand being opened have until Thursday to do so.

A further 1,000 season tickets will go on sale when the new stand is fully operational.

To purchase a season ticket for the forthcoming campaign, call 01923 223023 or visit the office reception under the Rookery Stand.

Tickets for a group of Hornets games will go on sale at 10am on Friday. The club will publish price and purchasing information on Thursday on their official website.

Watford play their first UK friendly of the summer on Saturday as they make the trip to League Two side Shrewsbury Town.

The match kicks off at 3pm and tickets, which can be bought on the day of the game or in advance, are priced at £10 for adults, £5 for seniors (over 65s), disabled supporters, students and under-16s while under-11s will be charged at £1.

A Watford Under-21 side consisting of Academy scholars and young professionals take on Wealdstone next Wednesday (July 23).

The game kicks off at 7.45pm and tickets are available on the day and are priced at £10 for adults, £5 concessions and £2 for under-16s.

The Hornets’ first team then take on Coventry City at Boreham Wood’s Meadow Park on Wednesday, July 30. Kick off is at 7.30pm. 

Places in a seated stand cost £16 while it’s £12 for standing. Concessions, under-16s and senior citizens (standing) cost £8.

Watford’s only pre-season friendly at Vicarage Road is against fellow Pozzo owned club Udinese on Saturday, August 2 with a 3pm kick off. 

Adult tickets for that game cost £3 and profits made from ticket sales for the match will be donated to the Royal British Legion.

Tickets for under-16s are priced at £1 while it will be £2 for concessions.

After the costs of staging the game are covered all money raised from ticket sales will be donated to the Royal British Legion, which also receives £1 from every Hornets away shirt sold this season

The Hornets' Under-21 squad are back in action on Wednesday, August 6 when they face Hemel Hempstead Town. Ticket prices for that match have yet to be announced.

Watford’s Under-18 side take on Kings Langley on Saturday at Gaywood Park. Tickets cost £5 for adults and £1 for concessions.

The Academy team then face Oxford United at home on Saturday, July 26 and Queens Park Rangers away on Tuesday, July 29.

The Under-18s are expected to have other matches that will be played behind closed doors.

Great idea to give gate proceeds to charity but will there be much left after costs, at just £1-£3 a ticket

If it's £16 for a seat to see us play a League1 outfit at Borehamwood... then surely £10 is more than reasonable for a 'competitive' friendly against Serie A opposition (sister club or not)... so why charge so much less just because of the charity gesture?

Costs will be minimal. It's not like Policing will be required. Also, by charging £1-£3 a ticket it guarantees a lot more fans than charging £10 per ticket!

The Udinese pricing is also an exercise of data gathering to support the clubs marketing plans. you need to set up an account to buy. Once you do the club has a better idea of potential customers. Its a good pricing plan under the cover of supporting the charity, as the low cost encourages new registrations, and i have nothing against it at all, as i would rather see us have a waiting list for tickets than empty seats at home games.

To WFC and to the W.O. Myself and someone else has offered to part with programmes from yonks back and to donate money received to either The British Legion or Help For Heroes. There must be others out there happy to do the same. Can WFC and the Watford Observer help to facilitate this? These posts are perhaps not enough but W.O. you can kick this off with the co-operation of our club.

I hope you're right but i'm doubtful many of our floaters would really think: 'I'd like to give up an afternoon to travel and see Watford play a Serie A outfit but a fiver/tenner's a bit steep so i won't bother'...
I guess we'll see by comparing to the attendance of the Granada game last season (about 6000 i recall).

How many of the 11000 seats will not be used,last season we were told sell out at some games...with loads of empty seats in vicarage road end...if your going to buy kids season ticket for 30 quid a season,then take the kids to the game...

The rule should be 2 missed games and your season ticket is deactivated without a reason...this would stop empty seats and lack of atmosphere in vicarage road end...I know a few (do goody fans)won't agree but this is the new way forward...

Good idea in theory but what people would end up doing is taking along the kids season ticket card, holding up the SC to the sensor and turning the turnstile empty.
By selling kids season tickets so cheap the club are exposing themselves to the possibility of this happening.
There's no viable solution!

I applaud the club trying to develop the new generation of Hornet fans, and while there's spare capacity in the ground the no-shows are not a major problem ( I informed the club of all my kids no-shows last season and the seats were never resold).
But by selling STs at just £30 it must encourage parents to buy child season tickets even if they only expect them to go to a handful of games - because it's cheaper, more convenient and means a guaranteed seat next to the adult(s).
If/when we start getting regular 18-20k crowds then child ST prices should go up to over £100 to discourage this practise.

I think the club should consider a ticket exchange so ST holders have more incentive to release unused seats. The pro-rata ST cost goes to the ST holder and the difference to the resale full-price can go to the local charities. They will probably end up getting more than with the current voluntary scheme.

Banks of empty seats in 'sold-out' games last season don't look good but as they were only in the Family Stand it doesn't really affect the atmosphere much...
