Today marks two years since the Muttitt family put the first spades in the ground at the site of Brentford Community Stadium.
The Muttitt family association with Brentford goes back to the Club’s golden period in the 1930s when Robert’s father Ernie joined Brentford from, fittingly, Middlesbrough. He played for the Club from 1932 to 1947 and was inducted to the Brentford Hall of Fame in 2015.
Ernie helped The Bees win promotion from the third tier in his first six months at Griffin Park and then to the top flight in 1935. He was part of the squads which finished fifth in Division One in 1936. While not a regular, Ernie played 94 games for the Club and scored 27 goals, he also racked up more than 100 wartime appearances.
When playing for the Club, Ernie lived locally and was often spotted on the terraces after his departure. He passed on a love of The Bees to his family and Ernie’s son Robert was born in Braemar Road in 1947. Now 72, Robert recently changed our countdown board at Griffin Park with his son Peter and daughter Nicki, both Season Ticket Holders. All three were also involved in the ground-breaking ceremony, along with Robert's granddaughter Sophie.
Including Premium Seats, the number of Season Ticket Holders at our new stadium is now higher than it is for our final season at Griffin Park.
In case you missed it, our Reservation Centre has been closed in the short term given the ongoing concerns posed by Covid-19 (aka the Coronavirus). However, sales of Season Tickets and Premium Seats for our new home will continue as supporters can secure their seats via phone appointments. Season Ticket Holders who haven’t renewed yet and Members can find more information here.
It’s too late to become a 2019/20 Club Member but you can still join our waiting list. Should any remaining Season Tickets be available in May, they will be offered to those on the waiting list first.
Alternatively, all supporters can guarantee their place at the new stadium now with a Premium Seat. Our Red & White hospitality option is our last remaining package and is perfect if you are looking for more than a regular matchday experience. Register your interest here and a member of our team will contact you to discuss your premium seat options.
