Negotiations between Brentford FC and London Irish RFC are proceeding, with an application to allow rugby to be played a the new Lionel Road stadium likely in 2017.
The consent for the new stadium contains a condition prohibiting its use for professional rugby. Now the football and rugby clubs are working together on a Section 73 application to vary that condition and allow London Irish to use the new stadium as their home ground.
This is expected to be considered early in 2017. Construction on the new stadium is expected to start later in 2017.
