We’re a club for all, haven’t got any time for discrimination

- Troy Deeney

the Watford FC LGBTQ+ Supporters Group

Membership is open to supporters of Watford Football Club from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Trans and QI (LGBTQI+) community, their friends, families and anyone who agrees with our aims.

We want to help make Vicarage Road Stadium and Football in general inclusive spaces where everyone feels safe to be themselves.

An absolute honour to have been asked and to accept the invitation to become a patron of the Proud Hornets. The work they do is incredible and I’m delighted to be a part of it moving forwards.

Such was its magnitude, the Premier League now have a mural of it at their central London headquarters.

And it all started with a group of half a dozen volunteers from Hertfordshire.

Proud Hornets are Watford’s LGBT+ supporters group. They are best known for organising a rainbow mosaic alongside The 1881 Movement during the Hornets’ dedicated Rainbow Laces match against Manchester City in December, which was shown live on BT Sports.
