Brentford Football Club is a professional football club based in the London Borough of Hounslow, that currently plays in the English Football League Championship. The Club was founded in 1889 and has called Griffin Park its home since 1904. 2020 represents the start of a new era for Brentford, with the Club moving to a new, 17,250-seater stadium with outstanding facilities for fans, broadcasters, corporates and the community. The new stadium, open for the start of the 2020/21 season, is the cornerstone of a longer-term vision that aims to see Brentford FC reach the Premier League on the field and ensure that the Club is sustainably run off the field.
Situated next to the M4, the new Brentford Stadium is located a mile from Griffin Park and is at the centre of the Brentford East redevelopment scheme, which includes the construction of more than 900 new homes, a new purpose-built location for Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, and a public square with shops and cafés. Brentford FC plays a very active role in its local community.
The Club is a four-time winner of the EFL Community Club of the Year Award and is the only professional football club in the UK with a Business in the Community and Community Mark Award. In total, Brentford FC Community Sports Trust delivers more than £13 million of social benefit to the West London area.
