Brentford players, fans and staff send message of togetherness

Ahead of their first match back this weekend, Brentford Football Club has released a new video reiterating its stand against racism and discrimination.

Under its #BeeTogether banner, the video features Brentford players, fans and staff, and stresses the importance the Club places on togetherness and unity.

Jon Varney, Brentford FC Chief Executive, said: “It may not be possible for us to be together in person right now, but we can all be together in spirit, working together to build a Club and ethos that we can all be proud of. We want everyone to feel welcome at Brentford and will continue to fight racism and discrimination of any kind. The events of the past few weeks have highlighted the importance of this work and we can all do our bit to make a difference.”

Thomas Frank, Brentford Head Coach, said: “We pride ourselves on our spirit and togetherness. We have a dressing room consisting of 15 different nationalities from many different walks of life. We are one Club, one team and one community, there is absolutely no room for racism or discrimination of any kind at Brentford”
