Brentford FC have launched the premium seating for their new stadium.
The club have already had some success, selling over 200 seats, any on five year commitments, and some on a lifetime licence. At an event at West London Porsche, the club outlined progress on the new stadium build.
Club Chair, Cliff Crowne, proudy said the build was “on time, and on budget”, while Director of Football Rasmus Ankerson echoed that, and with slides that showed Brentford at the bottom of league one for revenues, but close to the top for profit and loss, showed the difference that a ground expansion could make to a well-run club.
Alan Walsh, the Operations Director outlined the remaining schedule, now the North Stand has reached completion, and the stadium formed. The pitch construction – using a hard wearing, novel stitched design to help it deal with the rigours of both football and rugby – will begin in June or July 2019, and seat installation in September.
In early 2020 there will be a series of test events, prior to the home debut for the first team in late August 2020.
Greg Dyke, former chair, and former Director General of the BBC, spoke of his excitement, and paid tribute to Brian Burgess, who masterminded the redevelopment.
