Brentford are joining other EFL clubs and encouraging supporters to stay away and watch the last day of the 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship season at home. Brentford play Barnley on Wednesday night and the game will live on Sky Sports with no fans allowed in. We request, again, that fans do not come to Griffin Park on Wednesday night.

In line with football’s return on a behind closed doors basis with the safety of fans, club personnel and the frontline services the principle priority, supporters are now being asked to maintain social distancing guidelines and avoid congregating outside stadiums as part of the message: ‘When we play, please stay away’. Brentford Head Coach Thomas Frank and striker Ollie Watkins played their part in a special EFL video released last month. We ask fans to continue to stay at home whatever happens on Wednesday night.
