Brentford FC hosted a Government visit last week. Oliver Dowden, Secretary of State in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, was in our new stadium. He met with fans to discuss the Government's 'Fan-Led Review' into the future of football. The review, led by Tracey Crouch, has been taking evidence from across the game and published an initial update in July, which can be seen here. See more below.
