Brentford Football Club issues media releases on

Major releases are sent to journalists on our media list, contact Chris Wickham if you would like to be added 

Pre-match press conferences are usually held weekly, on the Thursday before a Saturday match.

Broadcasters and written media will both get a chance to conduct interviews during this session.

Any request to interview any of the players or any member of staff outside of the weekly press conference should be submitted to Chris Wickham.

No member of the media should contact any employee without first contacting the Communications Department.

Members of the playing squad or management will not be available in the 24 hours prior to a match.

B Team players will not normally speak to the media.

Requests for media accreditation to a Brentford home match should be submitted via Football DataCo’s i-PBS booking system at least 48 hours before a fixture. Requests by email can no longer be accepted

Every member of the media attending a fixture should have ID approved by Football DataCo and produce it on request,

Admission to cover a fixture is based on acceptance of the Ground Regulations and the Premier League media access agreement – both are available on request.

Due to a shortage of space we cannot accommodate student journalists in the Brentford FC media facilities on matchdays.

Due to the number of requests received, Brentford FC staff cannot assist with student surveys, films or work.
