Brentford head coach Thomas Frank believes the Premier League Summer Series in America will put the Bees in a great position to 'attack the league' this season.

Frank and his side will travel to the USA on Monday 17 July, ahead of three games against divisional rivals Fulham, Aston Villa and Brighton and Hove Albion across the pond.

And the Dane stated that, while there are a lot of extenuating factors that need to be taken into account when going on a pre-season trip like this, he is excited to be taking part in the inaugural competition this summer.

"It's going to be a very good experience," said Frank in his look ahead to the 2023/24 campaign, "it’s the first time we’re going to go that far abroad.

"There are a lot of things we need to take into account: the time difference, the heat, the humidity over there in the States.

“We're going to play three very good games and it's going to be good for the branding of the club: it's a market over there that I think is important to go to and explore.

“But, first and foremost, it’s performance first. It's about preparing the team to be ready to fly and attack the league next season. I’m looking forward to it."

As he mentioned, Frank is delighted to be heading to the USA, bringing his side to play games in Washington, Atlanta and Philadelphia, and meeting the Bees fans that support the club over there.

He is also hoping that the trip will encourage more American football fans to join the west Londoners on what continues to be an exciting journey in the Premier League.

When asked about how excited he is to play in front of supporters out in the US, he responded: “Massively, especially when you hear the stories about the American fans and how much they are into football, as well as, of course, the Bees fans over there.  

“We really appreciate their support and hopefully we will get more fans - that's the aim.”
