Brentford FC has released a time-lapse video of its new Community Stadium taking shape, a year after construction began.
The stands started rising from the ground a few months after first ground was broken in March last year, following final preparatory works. Now 12 months on, the structure of the stadium is almost complete. See the video here.
The Brentford Community Stadium development is an important part of the wider regeneration of the area known as Brentford East and will deliver a stadium ready for both Premier League football and Premiership rugby, together with more than 900 new homes, a new purpose-built location for Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, and a public square with shops and cafes.
The venue is capable of hosting 17,250 spectators which includes 2,930 Premium Seats, allowing growth of support and the ability to realise an important new revenue stream in the pursuit of top flight football.
Meanwhile, Brentford FC has enhanced its relationship with EcoWorld London, the business delivering the Sky Bet Championship side’s new home.
Already the Club’s development partner on its 17,250-seater Brentford Community Stadium, which is set to open next summer, EcoWorld London has strengthened that relationship with Brentford FC by becoming an Official Platinum Partner for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.
