Last year, the Government announced that they are taking the first steps to create safe standing areas at Premier League and Championship clubs, with several trials taking place from January 2022. Brentford will now liaise with the local authorities and SGSA to submit an application to secure a safe standing licence for the 2022/23 season, subject to the outcome of the national trials.
Barrier seating will be installed at Brentford Community Stadium for the start of next season with a view to converting the entire West Stand to a licensed safe standing area.
The standing area will spread across the West Stand and Block S100 in the South Stand. Block S100 has been included to avoid those seated in this area having their sightlines impacted by those in the West Stand.
As things stand, there is not a mandatory age or height restriction in the proposed safe standing areas. However, this may be imposed depending on the outcome of the national trials and discussions with the local authorities. Should this happen, we will get in touch with those groups affected.
Regardless of this, adults must think about the children in their group and consider whether a move to another part of the stadium is appropriate where it will be easier for children to see the match.
*Prices only available for those under 11 in the Family Area. Prices for those over 11 are £124.
