Brentford FC are getting established in their new home with the new 2020/21 season underway. We played our first game at the stadium at the start of the month - a friendly draw against Oxford United - before the first competitive action last weekend. The Bees beat Wycombe Wanderers in the Carabao Cup last Sunday in a match decided by a penalty shoot-out.
All games at the moment are being played behind closed doors but media, including the Sky Sports cameras, are in attendance. Thomas Frank also did some media work inside the stadium this week, ahead of the match against Birmingham City. Some of the media responses to our stadium can be seen below.
