Is 'The Brentford Community Stadium' the permanent name for our new stadium?

I notice on Twitter this week Beesotted has been referring to 'New Griffin Park' rather than Brentford Community Stadium...

I haven't even graduated to using the term "stadium" as we play at a "ground" so will struggle with referring to our new ground as the "Hedgehog Gutterbrush Stadium" or whatever. "Brentford Community Stadium" sounds a bit naff, a cross between something out of The Brittas Empire and something run by the council. I think I will, like others, carry on going to Brentford.

Quite like the Lego idea if we can extract several million pounds from them. That would shut the Raras up as they scrape around for every penny.

All of your posts on the same subject and thread though. A little odd and a bit fishy......... try another subject/thread.

I had an account on the Grapevine, but I couldn't remeber the passowrd, or my password reminder, so I created a new account! Sorry!

Why is it fishy? I chose this subject today, and I just wanted to get my own opinions across. I like hearing feedback from my comments about a team I love, as probably everyone else does. I am Brentford through and through!

No one’s going to sponsor anything until the acoustics inquiry is complete. Who are/were the ghostly 200? Could they be fitters, trapped in the nethers of the stadium during 1st lockdown? Maybe an eerie combination of trains, drains, planes and Friday night traffic, or not.
Wind, I reckon, will be the culprit....

BFC need to ditch using The Community Stadium, it sounds awful.
Most of my mates mates call it Lionel Road.
It's not a community stadium if the community can't use it!!
I'm sure the name will change once someone pays for the Club to do it.

This.

It's why eg Spurs insist on the (anodyne) "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium" - they want any new sponsors name to have a chance to stick without the fans simply calling it White Hart Lane.
It's also why they paid millions to TfL to rename nearby "White Hart Lane" station as "Tottenham Hotspur Station":
London railway station to be renamed Tottenham Hotspur

(Trivia question: What was "Arsenal" underground station known as before the club somehow persuaded London Transport to rename the nearest station to their old Highbury ground?)

It will, but in the meantime, call it what it is, Lionel Road
and not a Community Stadium.
I call it Lionel Road, if that helps?! 🤪

It will be called the Brentford Community Stadium until someone buys the rights to it. That’s just how it is. That’s what it was in the planning and that is what it is now.🤷

That's coz you're a proper Brentford person.
It makes me laugh when us supporters call it Lionel Road
and the media call it what BFC think is socially correct.

You'd like to think with how much moolaa we make through transfers and potential Premier League football that we wouldn't need a stadium sponsor....you'd like to think.

This has been too long in the works for fans to call it anything other than Lionel Road

when youre paying your key players upwards of 20k a week those transfer fees quickly get eaten up, espeically with a pandemic where there has been no income through the turnstiles and now limited. Anything that gives us a better chance to have the strongest squad possible has to be considered

Has Saturday’s game helped in getting the Full Safety Certificate
There's not really such a thing, safety certificates are issued on a match by match basis. And based on regular meetings with the Safety Advisory Group.

If we are only going to be having 2,000 or 4,000 fans that's all that will be worked on in detail.

I don't call the stadium anything at all, if someone asks, I just same i'm gong to watch Brentford and always have. The name isn't overly important the team that play there is.

I understand that if we got promoted then it would have been named after a very large telecommunications company. Maybe we have to wait until we are promoted to make that one come to fruition again...?
Any ideas which one?
