Places must be booked and paid through a single person as group organiser, who will be the key point of contact for the event and responsible for the group on the day. Please note: This event is not for individual participants and is for group bookings only.

  1. Transport from the training ground to stadium is not provided and customers will be required to make their own way from London Colney to Watford.
  2. Group booking must be for a minimum of 10 participants.
  3. Due to the scale of the event, we cannot guarantee that whole groups will be sat together in the stadium for the match.
  4. Sessions will take place in the indoor dome at the Training Ground, Bell Lane, London Colney, AL2 1BZ.
  5. Adults are asked to ensure that participants are dressed appropriately for the conditions, bring plenty of water and must wear shin pads and football boots. Please note metal studs cannot be worn in the dome
  6. Car parking for Train Like A Pro is provided at the training ground only, and spaces are limited, so car sharing is recommended wherever possible. Information for additional matchday parking for Vicarage Road can be found here.
  7. Only the participant and the associated supervising adult can enter the training ground. No additional spectators are permitted.

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.

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.
