Robin Goodlet, Managing Director of EcoWorld London, was the latest to perform the Griffin Park Countdown. At every home league match in 2019/20 we are counting down to the final game at Griffin Park. This will include using a special display which will be updated at each remaining league match. The Farewell Griffin Park countdown was changed to 11 when The Bees beat Swansea City on Boxing Day by Robin, representing the Club’s Principal Partner for the last season at our historic home, and his daughter Izzy.
EcoWorld London are the business delivering a new home for Brentford Football Club, which is just a very long goal kick from Griffin Park and will be open this summer. Robin has been Managing Director for 18 months, roughly the amount of time Brentford Community Stadium has been under construction. And he played a key role in our last ever Boxing Day fixture at Griffin Park.
The EcoWorld Community Stadium development project is an important part of the wider regeneration of the area known as Brentford East, set to create a new neighbourhood for London. In addition to a new 17,250-seater state-of-the-art stadium, the development will deliver a new purpose-built location for Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, a public square with shops, cafes and restaurants as well as more than 900 new homes for sale and rent. The stadium will host Brentford’s matches and also rugby union with London Irish having agreed a licence to play there.
EcoWorld London was launched in 2018 after EcoWorld International acquired 70 per cent of Willmott Dixon’s residential business. It currently has several ongoing projects in the UK, including the Brentford Community Stadium development. The firm was an Official Platinum Partner for the 2018/19 season and Principal Partner for the 2019/20 season, Brentford’s last at Griffin Park, the Club’s home since 1904.
As part of this season’s relationship Brentford FC and EcoWorld London are supporting each other on upcoming projects and events and there will also be involvement in the local community. As an integral part of the enhanced partnership, EcoWorld London are also joining forces with the Trust with the aim of creating sustainable improvements in local facilities and active opportunities for people in surrounding communities.
There will be no countdown at this afternoon’s Emirates FA Cup game against Stoke City. The countdown is only recognising the final league games at Griffin Park. It will return when we host Queens Park Rangers next Saturday.
