A great, intimate, stadium. When it starts getting loud, it's really quite something. Really easy to get into, not as great leaving. Personally tend to walk in from Griffin Park/Brentford train station.

First time at the stadium for London Irish - brilliantly organised/marshalled. Super fun and phenomenal party in the Dugout after, with Bible Code Sundays taking the roof off with an incendiary set. Great community spirit and child friendly.
What a wonderful ground, and easy to get to from London. It's all very sleek and modern, and the prices for food and drink were good value. Will definitely be going back.

I was there with my family for LONDON IRISH vs WORCESTER WARRIORS rugby match It was our first-time experience for the rugby. We enjoyed very much. There was a great atmosphere at the match because the fans' behaviour was very firendly. The rugby fans are totally different than soccer's. If you want to spend good time with your family you should get a ticket and take a place on the stadium.

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.
[5]

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]
