Watford agree improved ground deal with Saracens

Watford Football Club has agreed a new deal with Saracens which will see the rugby union side play at least 10 matches at the npower Football League’s Vicarage Road ground next season.

The improved deal for the Hornets also includes the option for Saracens to play further games beyond the 10 with additional matches being charged by pre-agreed match by match basis.

Watford owner Laurence Bassini said: "The club is happy to welcome Saracens back to our stadium next season.

"They approached us to see if we could take into account their current situation with regard to their ongoing Copthall Stadium negotiations.

"Given the long-standing relationship between Watford and Saracens, it is only right that we considered their request."

Saracens are currently pursuing a new ground at Copthall Stadium.
