Nice new stadium. I went to watch Germany play Austria. I am really glad Brentford hosted the tournament with other English locations. Well done. Drinks are almost £3 for non-alcohol and £4-6 for beers. Quite reasonable for a Premier League team host stadium.

Attended the the stadium for the 1st time, during the woman’s euro. There is a train station across from the stadium which was really good. The lines to enter the stadium where not very busy as such and the staff where friendly. The atmosphere was really good during the tournament, everything was easy to find but some of the drinks where expensive for my own liking.

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.

After leaving Griffin Park teary eyed and emotional, this new gem of a home is beautiful. I’ll always miss Griffin Park but this really does make up for it. The stadium design is something I’ve never seen before and the way the stands are built, it traps in the atmosphere brilliantly. Great architecture! I’ll be bias and say the fans are incredible, the atmosphere is electric and singing our hearts out to “hey Jude” is only the beginning. The stadium is very easy to get to. Kew Bridge station is a stones throw away, bike parking facilities at the stadium. Bus stop in Hounslow is right outside. Easy walk for locals. If you arrive over an hour early, normally certain foods and drinks are about £3.50 and the menu has a good selection. If they are televised games before and/or after the game the club will have it on. Honestly. It’s a stadium you must visit during a league game to get the best out of everything!

Went to see a EURO 2022 game between Germany and Denmark. The stadium was clean, tidy and well looked after. The crowd was very well behaved, lots of families and children. The vending facilities were OK, everyone managed to get what they wanted. It is a pretty small ground, c. 15-16k capacity. The Kew Bridge Station is right next to the stadium and is very convenient if you indeed manage to get onto the platform before they restrict and close it. There weren't that many trains, so if you get stuck, prepare for a bit of a wait. Also when we went Gunnerbury District line was exit only at end of game.

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]
