Action taken after Leeds game

Update on sanctions after away fans found in home areas

12 July 2019

Brentford Football Club has taken action against ticket buyers after issues at the game against Leeds United at the end of last season. The Bees beat Leeds at Griffin Park on Easter Monday on a memorable afternoon, but the Club had to deal with issues of visiting supporters in home areas at the game. There were also fans attempting to gain entry to the game with junior tickets despite being unable to prove they were under 18.

When fans were removed from the ground, or were prevented from entry, their tickets were removed and their details were taken. As such, a number of supporters are currently banned from attending games at Griffin Park until they provide more information as to why Leeds fans had tickets with their names on. Others have communicated with the Club and have been given suspended bans. Brentford FC has also passed on the details of visiting fans in home areas to Leeds United FC.

Brentford FC would like to reiterate that it takes a zero-tolerance policy to fans buying for visiting supporters in home areas. When an away fan can be identified and removed, their ticket will be confiscated and action taken. The Club will issue bans to supporters buying tickets for visiting fans next season or attempting to gain entry with an invalid ticket. These sanctions may include a ban for the last ever games at Griffin Park.
