Participants aged six-16 years old can enjoy a 90-minute coaching session with Watford FC’s Community Sports and Education Trust coaches on a 3G pitch at Westfield Academy (Tolpits Lane, Watford, WD18 6NS) before taking the short walk to Vicarage Road Stadium to enjoy a Watford FC men’s first team fixture.
Our Matchday Packages (MDP) are available on a first come, first served basis to any Grassroots football clubs, teams, or groups of participants aged between six and 16 years old. (Please note that individual coaching groups must only contain participants within a two-year age band.)
Our minimum coaching group size is 10 participants and a maximum of 16 participants in a coaching group. If you want to bring along more than 16 participants, the group organiser will need to organise them into smaller groups of 10+
Every Club, team or group must have a nominated group organiser that we can liaise with and who will be responsible for managing and paying for the booking.
Every participant will receive a junior ticket for the fixture included within the price of their matchday package place. The group organiser can also purchase additional ‘non-participant’ tickets for members within your group at the price of £25 per person.
Participants need to come dressed for appropriately for a football session, appropriate to the weather conditions for the day. Shinpads must be worn and only moulded football boots or AstroTurf trainers (not metal studs or flat soled trainers) are permitted on the Westfield pitch.
Please also bring plenty of water and ensure sunscreen is applied before the participants take the pitch – should we be lucky enough to have a sunny day! Our coaches will not apply sunscreen to any participants.
