Hornets nest in top-flight

After last place finishes in their two previous Premier League campaigns, as well as an eight-year absence, the Hornets buzz back to top-flight this season. Watford are a small club, located just outside the limits of London, but they are proud of their long history.

Vicarage Road, where the Hornets play, has an intimate feel and is located in a neighborhood, like an old-time park. Opponents admit to being uncomfortable there, because of the passion of the Watford supporters.

The club may be best known for its most famous supporter — rock legend Elton John — the club’s honorary life president and former chairman.
