Brentford FC’s statement on London Irish exploring options to play at Brentford Community Stadium

Brentford Football Club’s vision is to have a new 20,000-seat Brentford Community Stadium for both professional football and rugby, subject to the relevant planning permissions. Over a number of years, the new stadium project team has held discussions with several rugby clubs, one of which is London Irish.

We understand that the club has a long term aspiration to move back nearer to its roots at some stage and to play home games in the west London area again. With that in mind, London Irish started formal discussions with London Borough of Hounslow on 15th August to explore the potential to play rugby at Brentford Community Stadium.

Brentford Football Club welcomes these exploratory discussions with the Council.
