Brentford Community Stadium (capacity 17,250)
Brentford moved to their new home in 2020, having played at Griffin Park since 1904. The Brentford Community Stadium, less than a mile from Griffin Park, is at the heart of plans to regenerate the surrounding area, including new homes and commercial opportunities. The stadium will also play host to Rugby Union team London Irish.
The unique triangular design was a result of numerous design and planning challenges that presented itself being located between two railway lines and the M4. As you’d expect for a new stadium it has state of the art features, including two LED screens which currently have the highest resolution in a UK stadium. In addition it benefits from Desso Grassmaster fibre-stitched system, which is the same pitch technology as Wembley Stadium.
Away fans visiting the Brentford Community Stadium are located in the East Stand, with an allocation of around 2,000.
There are no dedicated car parks at the Brentford Community Stadium, nor are there particularly any street parking options. The best options are car parks in the surrounding area that belong to businesses, some of whom allow non-customers to park there for a small fee.
