Watford have opted against changing their badge despite sorting through more than 4,000 new designs.

The Hornets gave fans the opportunity to redesign the club’s crest for next season.

A panel picked the 20 best designs, with a fan vote deciding the best alternative, before a showdown with the current design.

The current badge won out by a 60-40 margin, with the club detailing the results and decision.

A statement read: “Following a lengthy and comprehensive process, in which you played an important part, we are pleased to announce that we will be retaining the current Watford badge, the final vote deciding this by a 60/40 margin.

Watford opted against the alternative badge

“As such, there will be no change to next year’s kit and we have pressed the button on production.

“We want to thank those of you who registered their vote(s) at any stage. We set out to make this as democratic, and open, a process as possible and in that regard we managed to capture the opinion of more than 25,000 Watford fans.

“As such, we hope that everyone felt like they had an opportunity to have their say on a topic that is close to all of our hearts.”
