We are still not back to having a usual matchday experience but some of the normal routines are in place at our new home. One of those will be that Peter Gilham – the longest-serving matchday announcer in the country – will be at the game, as he has been at all our home games at our new stadium. There have been the usual matchday announcements of teams and goal scorers and he is also reading out your messages.
Have a look and a listen to some of what Peter Gilham, Brentford's long-serving matchday announcer, was able to read out at our new stadium against Middlesbrough last Saturday. We requested messages from fans and they arrived in their droves. Can you hear yours?
The Bees welcome Queens Park Rangers to our new stadium on Friday 27 November in a match that will kick-off at 7.45pm. The game will, unfortunately, be behind closed doors but will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and on iFollow for Season Ticket Holders. We hope fans will be able to hear Peter and have a little more Brentford coming in to their homes.
As part of this, we are collating messages for Peter to read out at the game. It is intended this will continue at our remaining home games until we can welcome fans back. If you have a message, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1pm on Friday 27 November. Please keep them short so we can read as many out as possible. Please note, we cannot guarantee reading out all messages but will try to read as many as possible.
Season Ticket Holders that agreed to freeze their seats for the current campaign in to 2021/22 now have iFollow VIP access. They can watch the game against QPR when they log in to their iFollow account. See more here.
