STAY HOME AND TUNE IN AS THE JOURNEY CONTINUES

Championship restart just over 48 hours away

17 June 2020

Brentford are joining other EFL clubs and encouraging supporters to stay away and tune in to all remaining 2019/20 matches from home with fans being given unprecedented access to live games on Sky Sports and online. The EFL have a proud history of developing innovative new ways to attract supporters through the turnstiles, but the message has been reversed 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 a new campaign message: ‘When we play, please stay away’ ahead of EFL matches returning for the first time since March on a behind closed doors basis.

All EFL matches are available to view from home, with matches being made available through coverage on Sky Sports or iFollow streaming services. Details of what Brentford are doing for fans can be seen here. Please help us keep Griffin Park and all stadiums safe and secure by watching at home.

Tomorrow, Thursday 18 June, Sky Sports will televise the first leg of the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Semi-Finals, before hosting live coverage of three Sky Bet Championship fixtures over the opening weekend of the restart, with Fulham v Brentford kicking off the action at 12.30pm on Saturday 20 June. Full details of first weekend of resumed Sky Bet Championship and League Two Play-Off Semi-Final fixtures are detailed below. All games not shown on Sky Sports are available for fans to view via iFollow (or their Club equivalent) streaming service.
