Brentford have announced that their Women’s team will play a home match at Gtech Community Stadium for the first time on Sunday 13 November 2022.
Brentford Women currently play in the London South East Regional Women’s Football League Division One North, with home matches played at Bedfont Sports Centre.
They however will now play at Brentford Community Stadium for the very first time against Watford Ladies Development on 13 November, with kick-off confirmed for 3pm GMT and turnstiles will open from 2pm GMT in South Stand.
Brentford’s Chief Executive, Jon Varney described this opportunity as “an amazing experience” for their women’s team, yet “a great way” to highlight their importance to the club moving forward.
This summer saw Brentford host three Group B matches plus Germany’s Quarter-Final win over Austria at 2022 UEFA Women’s Euro, which Varney has described as a “proud” role for the club, with England’s triumph ensuring the sport is now “at an all-time high.”
On what he hopes will be achieved by this momentous occasion for Brentford Women to play at Gtech Community Stadium, Varney commented: “We want our women’s teams to continue to grow and progress and I believe an opportunity like this is a great way to help them do that.
“I hope that our supporters take advantage of the free tickets for this game and bring along all their friends and family to enjoy a great match and atmosphere and really get behind the women’s team.”
Brentford Women General Manager, Amy Crook added that she hopes this match will help “to inspire more young women and girls locally to get involved in football.”
On seeing the women’s First Team playing at Gtech Community Stadium, Crook added that she is “excited and incredibly proud” of the “thrilling prospect” at a record home crowd for the women’s team.
Brentford Women’s manager, Karleigh Osborne is excited about getting to manage the team from the dugout at Gtech Community Stadium, in what he calls “a massive occasion” for the team to impress in front of home fans.
On the club’s support despite playing at lower-level of women’s football, Osborne said: “It’s great that the Club are fully behind us and are pushing our team to be playing at the highest possible level.
“We’ve had some great experiences playing for Brentford already, including playing at Griffin Park and having more than 1,000 supporters down at Bedfont Sports Club last season but this game takes us to another level and will help us to retain our players and give them the support they need for future success.”
