Brentford’s new ground location

The new Brentford Community Stadium

We have recently been sent some information and updates with regards to the new grounds and stands that are going up around the country in the coming future. If you’re not aware that please read below as there are going to be new stands at both Selhurst Park and Bramall Lane and finally a new stadium for Brentford Football Club.

That’s right, planning permission has been granted for new Brentford stadium which will be called the Brentford Community Stadium and its location will be at 166 Lionel Rd N, London, Brentford, TW8 9QT. That’s because Hounslow council have approved plans for the new Community Stadium and it is hoped that construction of the new 17,250 seater stadium could begin as early as February 2018. After several delays and changes to the proposals, it does look as though this new stadium will finally go ahead. If you’ve not been to Griffin Park yourself yet, then please do so as it’s a cracking little ground with a pub on each corner.

A vision of the new main stand at Selhurst Park

There is also going to be a new main stand at Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace have announced plans to redevelop their home with a new main stand and (much-needed) improved sight lines from the away end. The project is expected to cost around £100m and will add an extra 8,000 seats, taking the stadium’s capacity to around 34,000.

Sheff Utd have announced redevelopment plans

Sheffield United have also announced redevelopment plans for their main South Stand at Bramall Lane which will see almost 5,500 seats added in a new top-tier. The plans also include new corporate boxes and will see the stadium’s capacity top 38,000. The Blades expect to apply for planning permission early next year.

In other news which is not related to ground development, Wembley Stadium is to host seven Euro 2020 matches. The competition in 3 years time will be hosted in 12 cities across Europe with Wembley picking up extra games due to issues with the building of a proposed new stadium in Brussels.
