I thought our new home was brilliant. Really easy to get to and a great feel to the place once you’re inside. Even with only 2,000 of us in there, there was a really good atmosphere. You can imagine that once restrictions are eventually lifted and the bars and food stalls are opened, it’ll be really lively. Sitting in the stands you still feel very close to the action on the pitch - much more fun that the somewhat grandstand view I used to get at MadStad. I’m also glad to say I think I look to have made a good choice with my season ticket seat, when I eventually get to sit in it! Importantly, they’ve done a really good job with the branding and signage, so it felt like it was our ground. At MadStad you were always very conscious of all the Reading FC branding, meaning that we always felt like a bit like intruders. Fortunately at Brentford Community Stadium our landlords maintain a very discrete presence during our match days - well done to all concerned!
