The Crown, close to the club’s Fraser Eagle Stadium, will be open seven-days-a-week as a football-themed pub. Chief executive Rob Heys said: “”We are very happy to take over at the Crown. It is a great location and one that is already very popular with supporters. We are trying to improve facilities for fans at the stadium and this could be one way of increasing service while also bringing the club more money.” [Via FourFourTwo and ThisIsLancashire]

    I might be wrong, but I believe Watford also own a pub. The Red Lion pub on Vicarage Road, just outside the ground.
