“The Council's decision last night (9th February) is very encouraging news for London Irish and is a further step towards a return to our roots in London.
“The ability for a professional rugby club to also play at the new Brentford Community Stadium has always been a desire of the football club. London Irish share common values and a community ethos with Brentford FC which augurs well for a future commercial relationship.
“We now look forward to taking our discussions with Brentford FC to the next stage so that all can look forward to the stadium's completion and opening by the 2019/2020 season.”
