Watford Football Club

Redevelopment and fit-out of the Elton John Stand at Vicarage Road

Play Video


We installed a traditional structure for 3,000 spectators at Watford FC, with the seating deck formed from pre-cast concrete terrace units. Spectator concessions and club offices were also installed as a part of our flexible and cost-effective build programme.

Minimal disruption

Named after former owner and fan, Sir Elton John, the club’s new East Stand development was designed – and phased – to enable ongoing use of its existing changing facilities and physiotherapy rooms.

Exceeding expectations

The club was so pleased with the results, that they asked the Stadia by GL events team to revisit to deliver a further solution. The section that required extra consideration was the corner between two stands. This area saw the installation of 400 extra space-maximising seats in the triangular void between the East and North stands. As a result of the smart, innovative solution delivered at Watford FC, Stadia by GL events demonstrated its creativity and never-ending commitment to problem-solving in pursuit of client satisfaction.
