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, 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 client was so pleased with the results, that they asked us to revisit to deliver a further solution; this time in the corner between two stands. This section saw the installation of 400 extra space-maximising seats in the triangular space between the East and North stands. This smart, innovative solution demonstrates Stadia by GL events’s creativity and never-ending commitment to problem-solving in pursuit of client satisfaction.
