- £1m net sales includes all seasonal & corporate tickets purchased so far
- General sale launched on 4 February 2020
- London Irish will be playing at the Brentford Community Stadium from September 2020
London Irish Rugby Club’s seasonal and corporate revenue has gone past the £1 million mark for the club’s first season at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Season Tickets for the 2020/21 campaign went on general sale on 4 February, following an exclusive window for existing season ticket holders.
The move back to West London will see a pre-season friendly fixture, included in the cost of a season ticket, to begin the club’s tenure, followed by the opening Gallagher Premiership match.
London Irish CEO, Brian Facer, said: “We are delighted with how Season Ticket sales have progressed and how much of an appetite there is to see London Irish back playing in London.
“When Mick Crossan took over as owner of this club, one of his key objectives was to see the club return to its roots in West London and we are thankful to him for providing this.
“We are now in a position to bring Gallagher Premiership rugby back to the capital, at an affordable price, with a family ticket available for £600 for 17 home fixtures (16 competitive and 1 pre-season friendly).
“Throughout London Irish’s 122-year history, the club has been renowned for being a home away from home for the Irish and expat community. Our mission has always been to make Brentford a similar experience to what supporters enjoyed when we played at The Avenue and the team is working to ensure this happens.”
“With any stadium move, we know the logistics of getting to and from the ground is important to supporters. The Brentford Community Stadium has eight Overground, Underground and National Rail stations within a mile or so of the stadium.
“There will also be over 1,000 car parking spaces and Park and Ride options to ensure our Thames Valley core supporter group can attend home matches. This was successfully trialled in our recent away fixture against Harlequins.
“We are excited about the coming months as the move gets ever closer.”
