Really enjoyed my visit here to the stadium. A quick note to say that I was in the away section of the ground and so my experience may differ from other people's on here. The facilities were great (as to be expected from a stadium built in 2019) and the architects have done a tremendous job of placin the stadium where it is. The views from the seats are unobstructed and I think every seat in the stadium would get a good view of the pitch. The away section has an impressive safe standing zone and the food was about what I would expect from a Premier League football ground. Would honestly recommend people visit if they get the chance!

Although it’s one of the smallest stadiums in the premiership, it has a lot to offer. First of all, it has a good size VIP dining area, which is always clean, and has a good view of the stadium. The food is pretty good, with a range of free beer and soft drinks. As for the stadium itself, although it may not be able to sit quite as many as other major football grounds, it still has a lot to offer. The speakers are of high quality, which really gets you into the feel of the game. There are a fair amount of exits, so it’s not too much of a hassle to leave. As for the staff, they are very friendly and helpful; always appearing to be smiley and cheerful. Overall, I had a really good experience here and can’t wait for my next visit! ☺️

A basic stadium with standard type seats and a good amount of vending bars. The toilets are completely par for a football ground, pretty grim when crowded. The transport to get there is good and Kew Bridge station is really nearby. However after the game they restrict access to the station forcing everyone into a queue. It is fairly small for a Premier League football ground. 2021-2022 2022-2023 The away section now has "safe standing" barriers which is fine but mind your head as it is easy to bash it against the barrier behind your seat. Plus the coffee is not bad at all. 2023-2024 If rain is expected do not sit in the front rows as you will get wet from the rain and the roof run off. Otherwise the stadium is not too bad at all.

The Gtech Community Stadium is a new, state-of-the-art stadium in Brentford, West London. It is the home of Premier League football club Brentford, with Premiership Rugby club London Irish also tenants. The stadium was opened in 2020 and has a capacity of 17,250. The Gtech Community Stadium has been praised for its design, atmosphere, and facilities. The stadium is built on a tight site, but the architects have managed to create a spacious and welcoming environment. The stadium has a large roof that covers all four stands, providing excellent protection from the elements. The pitch is in excellent condition and the playing surface is known for being fast and true. The atmosphere at the Gtech Community Stadium is electric. The home fans are passionate and vocal, and they create a great atmosphere for both home and away teams. The stadium is also well-connected to public transport, making it easy for fans to get to and from games. The Gtech Community Stadium is a fantastic new stadium that is sure to be a hit with fans of both Brentford and London Irish. The stadium is well-designed, has a great atmosphere, and is well-connected to public transport.

History (from Wikipedia)

In October 2002, following several years of speculation about a possible relocation, Brentford Football Club announced plans to move to a 20,000-capacity stadium near Kew Bridge. This included an ambitious monorail proposal, which was later dropped from the scheme. After several years of uncertainty, the project was suddenly brought back to public attention in late 2007 when the club announced that it had secured an option on the site.[4]

This was followed up in February 2008 when a partnership deal with Barratt Homes to develop the site was announced.

The club's plan to move to a new community stadium took a massive step forward when, on 28 June 2012, the club bought the 7.6-acre (31,000 m
2) site in Lionel Road, Brentford, from Barratt Homes who had originally acquired the site in January 2008. The club aimed to build a 20,000-capacity stadium on the land in time for the 2016–17 season, with the option of extending to 25,000 seats. In December 2013 the club was given approval for the new stadium by Hounslow Council with further approval sought and received from the Mayor of London and the government in December 2013.[6]

Attention then shifted to acquiring the remaining land, required for the enabling development of flats, and completing the development agreement. A Compulsory Purchase Order was approved for the remaining land in the summer of 2014
[7] and although negotiations continued, a number of objections to the CPO resulted in a further hearing in September 2015.[8] The development agreement was signed with Willmott Dixon in December 2014.[9] The CPO was approved in April 2016 and the process completed on 1 September 2016.[10]

On 15 August 2016, 
rugby union club London Irish announced that discussions were ongoing with the borough for a move to the new stadium. Irish played in ReadingBerkshire but are moving back to the capital.[11] An amended application to use the stadium for rugby in addition to football was passed on 9 February 2017, effectively allowing London Irish to move to the new stadium from its opening season.[12] It was later confirmed they would move to Brentford from its opening season[13][14]

Work on the new stadium officially started on 24 March 2017 with site clearance and preliminary works.
[15] The main works began in spring 2018.[16]
