Clearly an error there, no mention of Ronald Geoffrey Noades...

Or Hounslow Borough Council as per the ridiculous rumour doing the rounds a few months ago.
Nah, some bloke in the Inverness owns it really, he told me so, so it must be true.

I can’t open the PDF so apologies if I’ve missed the detail, but this only refers to the land doesn’t it?

What else do you expect to see? You can't build on land you don't own or lease.

So it seems that Title no. AGL45118 refers to the leasehold title. Do you have a copy of the freehold title? Just curious.

That's massive considering Birmingham's ground is valued at a mere £20.6m according to a thread I read elsewhere about, well, you know, Birmingham's ground.
The land on which their stadium is built is valued at £2,599,999.50, the stadium itself is a nominal 50p.

Hardly surprising. Monotonous place. All the seats are the same colour for a start!

£2.6 million? Or are you missing a zero somewhere...

It would be interesting to know who the Freeholder is, and if the Club has to pay Ground Rent, if so how much is the Rent per annum?

Isn't it strange to think of the club in 250 years! Brentford will have so many "modern" memories of the new stadium by then and anything that went before could be long forgotten. I wonder will people of the day even mention Griffin Park or know it existed at one time. It's why it would be nice to name one of the stands at LR after Griffin Park in my opinion. "The Griffin Stand" or something to that effect.

I like this idea! Stands named after points on a compass is very dull.

I agree completely.

But I think I read somewhere that Health and Safety like to have N,S,E, W included in stand names, since it helps people find their bearings quicker in an emergency (evacuation etc), esp those unfamiliar with a new stadium.

It's certainly very handy for those who still have the little compass in the soles of their Clarkes Wayfinders.

If we don't win a playoff before the lease runs out I really will give up on them forever.

I’m hoping we’ll get in to see a live game before the lease runs out!

Only 250 years where’s the commitment?

With still 248 years to run on lease, I’m concerned that the stadium and facilities have not been built with an eye to the future.

For example, where is the provision to build the space rocket launch pad for the team’s away games on Mars!?

The monorail will be extended for that eventuality.

Won't need monorails. 200 years of decreasing mobility and ever stronger vaccines will see us as little more than drones directed by Global Inc, the only company remaining in the world.

Campus Britainnia's sole remaining purpose, to create historical imagery for virtual tourists will not sadly include football, which will only have 8 clubs, each with 1000 teams, made up of holograms of the greatest players who ever lived. Matches will be played entirely online but all will be decided by xG to take away any risk of the best teams not winning. Spurs still won't have won anything.

Slightly off topic, my apologies. Can anybody confirm if the new stadium has a bicycle stand/sheds please.

I'm pretty sure I saw them at the Bournemouth game.

Yes, there's a whole bunch of them in the North West corner.

"Turvec have been contracted to install the external cycle parking at Brentford Community Stadium. We have designed WaveUp shelters to accommodate 186 2ParkUp two-tier spaces in the public realm. Located at Kew Bridge station the development includes 910 apartments and a new 17,500 seater stadium for Brentford Football Club."

Thanks nana, my season ticket is at the North West corner of the stadium!

Now that we are PL status, is there any likelihood that some company may want to name sponsor the BCS?

Or is the word “Community” a permanent part of existing deals and arrangements?

Obviously a name sponsor would bring in additional money, but I prefer the Brentford Community Stadium to some random unassociated product, such as the MacHaddock Roasties Stadium!😂

I would say it’s highly likely that a stadium naming rights sponsor will come in now we’re in the EPL.

We have the advantage of the stadium having the BCS name both before and for the first season, so while the naming rights may 'replace' BCS, hopefully the BCS name will be 'sticky' during and after MacHaddock's temporary takeover.
