The Brentford Community Stadium is a brand new football and rugby venue that opened Summer 2020 as the home of Brentford Football Club and the London Irish rugby union team.
Brentford moved half a mile down the road from their long term home of Griffin Park, which they played at since 1904. London Irish on the other hand will be returning to London, having played at the Madejski Stadium in Reading since 2000.
The first match at the new stadium was a friendly between Brentford and Oxford Unity on the 1st September 2020 which ended in a 2-2 draw. London Irish played their first match at their new home on the 29th November 2020, defeating Leicester Tigers 22-9 in a Premiership Rugby fixture.
The Brentford Community Stadium will be one of the host venues of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022.
