We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Brentford Community Stadium.

Before purchasing a ticket and attending a match, please ensure that you, and everyone attending with you, has read and understood the COVID-19 Supporter Code of Conduct. You must agree to follow this code at all times.

Travelling to the stadium - Public Transport

Trains and Tubes

There are eight stations located within a 20 minute walking radius of the stadium, so if you are planning to travel either by train or tube to the stadium, do please consider all of these to avoid over crowding at any particular station, which could result in delays.

The closest train station is Kew Bridge, which has four trains per hour on Saturdays and three trains per hour on Sundays. Please note there is no step free access at Kew Bridge Station.

The main entrance to Kew Bridge station will become ‘exit only’ for one hour after the match ends. During this time, the station will only be able to be accessed via the underpass, which takes you directly onto platform 1 for London-bound services. Passengers requiring West bound services from platform 2 will need to use the bridge for access.

Gunnersbury station will also be ‘exit only’ for 60 minutes after the game, and the main entrance will be ‘exit only’ for two hours before the game.

Travel disruption

Please note, there will be no District Line or London Overground services to Gunnersbury station for the Sale (26th September) or Leicester (9th October) fixtures due to planned engineering works.

District Line services will still be running to Chiswick Park and Acton Town stations.

Buses

There are also a number of bus routes that serve the stadium. Supporters are advised to check for the latest information about bus routes at tfl.gov.uk or via travel management apps. Please allow extra time for bus journeys during the pandemic as it may not be possible to board the first bus that arrives due to social distancing protocols.

Car parks that are available to book through EST are situated at Chiswick Business Park (£15) and at the Citroen site on Capital Interchange Way (£20). The car parks will be open from three hours before kick-off and will close two hours after the final whistle.

Accessible parking is available to book through EST.

If you are planning to drive, please note that there is a full weekend closure on the M4 between junctions 6 and 8/9 on the weekend of the 24th to 27th September. Please plan an alternative route in advance and allow extra time.

In addition, there are some other public car parks available:

Gates will be open from two hours before kick-off and we advise that you aim to arrive no later than 30 minutes before kick-off.

Match Day Programme

Pre and post-match entertainment

Face painters and a balloon modeller will be in the concourses in the North West corner of the stadium before the game. Supporters will be able to move between the concourses once inside.

Head to the Dugout bar after the game where there will be live music and a Q&A. Unfortunately, those within the Red Zone (e.g. all match squad and coaches) are unable to take part in the Q&A under current guidelines, so for the time being the Q&A will be with non-match squad players. The match squad are also not allowed to be within the Dugout bar after the game.
To access the Dugout bar, supporters will need to leave the stadium via their closest exit and make their way to Gate B. Access to the Dugout bar is subject to capacity and on a first come first served basis. Supporters in the Platinum areas have direct access to the Dugout bar from their seats.
