Brentford Football Club was proud to support Level Playing Field’s ‘Weeks of Action’ campaign.

Disability charity Level Playing Field celebrated their seventeenth ‘Weeks of Action’ campaign from Saturday 27 January to Sunday 14 March, which aimed to showcase the good work being done by clubs and organisations to improve accessibility and inclusion across all sports.

The key objective of ‘Weeks of Action’ is to raise awareness of good access and inclusion and how it benefits disabled fans and the wider community – Brentford Community Stadium and our new accessible stands are an excellent example of how a matchday experience can be completely changed for a supporter and can bring live games back into their life.

  • 850mm: Dropped counters at an accessible level for all
  • 150 wheelchair spaces
  • 56 ambulant spaces
  • 23 accessible toilets
  • 8 unisex toilets
  • 5 accessible baby changing facilities
  • 2 adult changing rooms
  • 1 baby feeding facility
  • 1 Sensory Room
  • Designated disabled stadium parking
