We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Watford FC. FGH Security will supply SIA and Spectator Safety trained team members to Vicarage Road for every home game. Vicarage Road, which has a capacity of 21,577, has been the home of Watford FC since 1922, making it one of the most iconic football stadia in the country. Vicarage Road joins Wembley Stadium and the Mazuma Stadium in our growing portfolio of Premiership and English Football League stadia.
Some of our duties at the stadium will include Covid-19 pass checking, to ensure that fans have been duly vaccinated or have undertaken a negative lateral flow test prior to entering the stadium. We will also provide internal response and customer service roles during the game. Most of all, however, we will be providing our usual energetic and friendly service to the loyal fans of Watford FC, and visiting fans, and making sure they enjoy their day out, while we are #KeepingPeopleSafe.
Peter Harrison, Managing Director, said “I’m really excited to be keeping people safe at Vicarage Road. I know that Watford FC are justifiably proud of their commitment to family and community, and I was particularly impressed with their ‘Hornets at Home’ initiative to promote welfare among their fans during the pandemic. I fully expect to see that ethos championed by our team.”
Tom Sharman, Southern Regional Manager, said “We’ve invested heavily in delivering the best Spectator Safety training to our team. I’m very happy with the way the initial deployments have gone, and I want to give credit to our team for their positive attitude. I’m looking forward to developing our partnership with the Stadium Safety Team at Vicarage Road.”
