Just received this email:
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.​

it Will be a shame if the behaviour of leeds fans means the traditional lap of appreciation needs to be curtailed. if they somehow stay up can’t see them leaving quickly.

If they get relegated can’t see them leaving quickly also …but no Bees fans should be worried about going. Let’s hope there are no away fans in the home areas (unlikely) but if they make themselves known - lets hope everyone reports them and let the stewards/ police deal with them.

Are there likely to be more trains going back to Clapham after this match? Only one an hour on the timetable.

Yes, but the extra trains are usually only added on the day itself.

No overground service between Willesden Junction and Richmond that day, just to add to the fun.

Is this just the exchange system or does this include for example , Upgrading a season ticket for somebody who can’t go ? My daughter can’t go as she will be going thru last minute revision for her GCSEs so I was going to upgrade for a family member ?

Cheers

You’ll probably be able to get it done at the ticket office on the day if you’re early as they’ll be able to validate who you’re bringing instead doesn’t have a Bielsa face tattoo and a Stuart Dallas t-shirt.

Bottled it and decided to drive. Booked a parking space off the northern part of Ealing Road. Easy walk in. Avoid the Leeds w@yne kers on the trains.

Soft ticket checks (whatever they are) will be in place at both ends of Lionel Road South. Does that mean you won't be able to enter the road without a match ticket? Are we closing a public highway?

It’s closed to traffic anyway, so not an issue really.

The club may make it an issue as this is a high-risk game. So please have patience with the Box Office staff.

Not cyclists or pedestrians. And I've seen plenty of cyclists on that road on match days
LB Hounslow’s site doesn’t have a road closure order in place for 22 May as yet.

It won’t be the Leeds fans inside the ground who are the problem.

I wouldn’t be surprised if anyone who wants a drink outside of the ground after the game finds themselves in for a fairly long walk

You’ll be too young to recall Brum at home, Leyland DAF semi and a night game, Brum out in huge numbers, got locked in the Beehive and police wouldn’t let us out for our own safety, left that pub at 12.30 am. Missus waiting for me in Isleworth thinking that’s a new excuse for being a **** but it was true, anyway balls to Leeds fans, up to all of us to stick together and not allow any bullying or intimidation of Bees supporters.

Reading on FB that the Griffin will be home fans only before and after the game.

The Express was mentioned too but that could have been hearsay.

Expect that we could have home and away pubs for this game with a lot of places shut post game.

No! A friend of mine was a partner there a few years back though (but a Southend fan).

Obviously a decent money earner in the criminal court. :judge:
He was a professional negligence specialist. They could probably use him now to sue the club’s advisers.

As you say balls to a Leeds fans ! Let’s make it an intimidation for Leeds ….. wear one’s colours with pride !

GP was overwhelmed that night, probably more than it’s ever been.
Was also in the paddock and remember remonstrating with some Brum fans on the pitch who were offering everyone out and saying to them what’s the matter with you, you’ve won and no-ones having a go at you. They replied ‘coz we can and it’s fun’. Pretty pathetic.
