Brentford Community Stadium is a stadium in Brentford, West London, that is the home of both Premier League club Brentford and Premiership Rugby club London Irish. The stadium has a capacity of 17,250 and is suitable for use for both association football and rugby union matches. The new stadium is at the heart of plans to regenerate the surrounding area, including new homes and commercial opportunities.
In October 2002, following several years of speculation about a possible relocation, Brentford Football Club announced plans to move to a 20,000-capacity stadium near Kew Bridge. This included an ambitious monorail proposal, which was later dropped from the scheme. After several years of uncertainty, the project was suddenly brought back to public attention in late 2007 when the club announced that it had secured an option on the site.
This was followed up in February 2008 when a partnership deal with Barratt Homes to develop the site was announced.
