Watford FC's stadium becomes popular dogging site during coronavirus lockdown



Posted Wednesday, September 30, 2020 by Dailystar.co.uk

Watford's Vicarage Road stadium has become home to a very different kind of action in the past few months, with locals being warned "at the bottom past the ticket office you may well be surprised"

While it’s still not clear when fans will be allowed back into Premier League football stadiums some people are making use of the facilities during the enforced layoff.

Watford FC’s 22,200 capacity Vicarage Road stadium has become a local dogging hotspot during lockdown.

Randy Hertfordshire swingers have been getting up to all sorts of mischief in the shadow of the historic stadium, which has been the home of Sir Elton John's favourite side since 1922.

But a warning on swingers’ information site Dogging Action does ask those interested in a bit of al fresco sex to avoid match days.

The Hornets next home game is on Wednesday, October 21, when they will be facing Blackburn.

A review this month on Dogging Action promises the area near the ticket office is “busy on Sunday night after about 9.30pm”.

Steve and Helen, a couple claiming to be local doggers, told The Sun they are regulars at the Watford dogging site, although they don’t support the team.

Steve, 46, told the paper that Vicarage Road is a "well-known spot", and his partner Helen, 43, said: “We like being watched but it feels strange doing it next to a football ground.”

She cheekily added: “I guess we help put the horn into the Hornets.”

Britain’s top-flight football stadiums had expected to reopen for supporters from October 3. But the new social distancing restrictions introduced this month seem likely to force that date back.

With the Rule of Six in place, not even the most unpopular sides will be able to fit all their fans in the stands.

Nevertheless, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said he’s confident that stadiums will be back at full capacity by the end of the 2020-21 season.

“We remain very optimistic that can be achieved, that’s our ambition and our objective and we’re doing everything we can,” he told TalkSport.

Dogging enthusiasts are advised to get as much action in at Vicarage Road while they can.
