A sold-out allowance of 1,665 supporters will travel to Brentford for the Premier League kick off at 3pm on Saturday in what is the first top-flight clash against the Bees in the capital in over 75 years.

For supporters heading to the game, here’s everything you need to know before making the trip.

Covid safety information

If you are not feeling well with symptoms of Covid-19 or any cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not attend the game.

It is now a legal requirement for supporters attending Premier League matches to show an NHS Covid Pass or recent negative lateral flow test result before entering the stadium or they will be refused entry. All supporters aged 18 or over will also need to pre-register their Covid status before arriving at the stadium.

Supporters who have already completed the declaration are not required to complete it again. But if you haven’t already, click HERE to pre-register your Covid status before arriving at the match.

It is now mandatory and legal for all adult supporters to declare that they have no symptoms and have a certification showing that they are one of the following:

  • Fully vaccinated (at least TWO doses of Covid vaccine demonstrated in a Covid pass)
  • Able to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test within 48 hours of the match, either in an NHS Covid pass or other acceptable methods
  • Able to provide valid proof of medical exemption

Visiting Wolves fans are asked to co-operate with Brentford staff who will check supporters to present evidence of vaccination status, proof of a negative Covid-19 test or exemption and produce a photo ID before entering the stadium.

Supporters are encouraged to wear face coverings at all times and will be refused entry if they cannot show their NHS Covid pass or proof of a negative lateral flow test within the previous 48 hours, ideally on game day. Fans are advised to arrive early to allow time for these checks to take place before kick-off.

Match day information

The nearest station to Brentford Community Stadium is Kew Bridge, which has a South Western Railway train every 15 minutes on matchdays. Trains to the stadium from central London leave from Waterloo station. Please note that Kew Bridge station is not stepless.

Brentford station is the nearest stepless station, while Chiswick station is also less than 30 minutes walk from the stadium on the same line.

Gunnersbury station is the nearest station offering both the District tube line and London Overground connections, but the station currently only opens one hour after the final whistle.

However, nearby The Gunnersbury and The Pilot pubs would be happy to accommodate fans while they wait. There are no home or away pubs either, and both groups of supporters are welcome everywhere.

Visiting supporters arriving by car are advised to book in advance as most roads around the stadium have controlled parking areas.

The Ultra Low Emission Zone also impacts parking at Chiswick Park, so supporters should check if their car meets the emission standards or will be subject to an additional charge of £12.50.

There are also a small number of disabled spaces available on-site within the stadium which can be booked through the Brentford ticket office on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, Brentford have reserved spaces for blue badge holders at the former Citroën site on Capital Interchange Way, a short walk from the stadium.

All visiting supporters must access the pitch via the Capital Interchange Way rail bridge at the East Stand, where Here to Help staff will be available to greet supporters in the stadium.

Supporters are advised not to bring bags of any type into the stadium, although small bags are permitted, although they are subject to search.

There are a number of food and drink kiosks available around the stadium, with a wide range of options on offer (including vegetarian and vegan options) as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Please note that the stadium is completely cashless.
