Brentford FC are now established in their new home with the new 2020/21 season well underway. We have played five games at our new stadium and already had some memorable moments. There has been a West London derby win over Fulham and two Sky Bet Championship victories.
All games at the moment are, unfortunately, being played behind closed doors but media, including the Sky Sports cameras, are in attendance. Thomas Frank has also done pre-match media inside the stadium this week. Some of the media responses to our stadium can be seen below.
Brentford Community Stadium. Very impressive, will be even more special when fans eventually allowed in. Club done a great job, detail, rake, location etc 🙌 #BrentfordFC #FFC #bcd pic.twitter.com/jpr1VONVA9

This place would have been rocking in “normal times”. Gutted that #BrentfordFC fans are not here to see this special occasion with their own eyes as the teams run out. #HTFC #EFL pic.twitter.com/RWu3waADBQ

#BrentfordFC‘s new stadium would’ve been buzzing for its first league game. I marked the day by putting myself into the shoes of a fan – starting at The Griffin, moving on to the Express Tavern, watching the game before a post-match pint. Here is my review of the new ritual. #EFL pic.twitter.com/v7PrTiLLPe
