With the Leeds United fixture approaching on 22 Mayand the increased security arrangements in place for the match, we wanted to highlight a few steps we are taking to help ensure we all enjoy the day.
Fans are reminded that home areas of the stadium are for home fans only. You must not pass on any tickets for home areas to away fans. Any away fans found to be in home areas will be required to leave the stadium. Any Brentford fan who is found to be responsible for purchasing a ticket in a home area for an away fan or for passing their ticket onto an away fan, for whatever reason, will face a lengthy stadium ban and may lose their Season Ticket or Membership and all associated rights.
You may be aware that we tightened up the ticketing distribution process for this match. To purchase a ticket, Members had to have (a) at least 150 TAPs and to have attended at least one Premier League match at home this season; or (b) they must have attended at least three Premier League matches at home this season.
The Ticket Transfer function has also been switched off for this match – that includes all tickets, Season Tickets and Premium Seats.
You should also note that the bridge over the railway from Capital Interchange Way will not be accessible for home fans. This route will be dedicated for away fans only. Bees’ fans should all enter the stadium via Lionel Road South.
We encourage you to arrive early for the game on Sunday 22 May and be prepared to pass through a soft ticket check on the approach to the stadium on entry to Lionel Road South.
Finally, we would also ask fans to stay off the field of play at the end of the game. The players and coaching staff will want to properly thank you all after the match for your support, but this will only be possible if fans remain in the stands and the pitch is safe and secure for them. Entering the field of play is a criminal offence and may result in a criminal charge.
It has been a truly memorable season for us all. You have been with us every step of the way. Let’s make sure we finish the season on a high.
Come in your colours, bring your scarves – let’s make it a sea of red and white for the players when they walk out onto the pitch on Sunday 22 May.
