Brentford will begin their Sky Bet Championship season in front of the SKY TV cameras on Saturday lunchtime. After the shortest close season and pre-season, Brentford kicked off their campaign with a penalty shoot-out Carabao Cup win over Wycombe Wanderers on Sunday. They now start their league campaign with a trip to Birmingham City for a game that will kick-off at 12.30pm.
The game comes only 39 days after Brentford ended the 2019/20 season. The Bees finished that campaign with a Play-Off Final defeat to Fulham at Wembley Stadium after finishing third in the Sky Bet Championship, their best finish since 1947. They will get back underway at Birmingham on Saturday for a reverse of the opening day fixture from the last campaign.
Saturday's match will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors. It will, however, be available live on Sky Sports. As per the EFL communication on the broadcast arrangements for the new season, all of a team's away games that are selected for live coverage by Sky Sports will only be available on that platform.

Fans who do not have Sky Sports can access the game online via Now TV. Fans can pay for one-day access, which would also give them the ability to watch that day's Premier League football and much more. Alternatively there are longer passes available. See more here.
