Watford have flown to Austria to continue their build-up for the new Premier League campaign.

Javi Gracia and his players left Luton Airport this morning and will spend the next week at a training camp in the Alpine region.

The Hornets will play their opening pre-season friendlies behind closed doors while on the trip – against FC Koln on Tuesday (5.30pm UK time) and Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday, July 21 (2.30pm).

Watford have advised supporters they will not be facilitating entry to the matches. Fans may be able to gain access on the day, but this is not guaranteed.
