Whole Game Solution – Bees fans make their views known

Our survey indicates that Brentford fans do not want to see the EFL’s “Whole Game Solution” proposals implemented. BIAS surveyed members and the wider Bees family after the proposals became public. The BIAS committee have already given feedback to the club on the proposals, and we will make sure the club see and take into account the views of fans given in this survey. The survey is still open so if you haven’t given us your opinion, it’s not too

After meeting with some of the BIAS Committee before the Sheffield Wednesday home match, the club responded to the EFL questions regarding the Whole Game Solution. BIAS are pleased to hear that this response included a summary, written by the club, of a selection of our and other fans concerns. We now want to hear from BIAS members and Brentford fans. Please tell us what you think of the EFL’s proposals and how BIAS and the club should respond. Please

New Road Gantry – Apology and Compensation

BIAS welcomes the club’s apology, actions to reduce the problems with the new TV gantry and the compensation that is now being offered to some affected fans.   BIAS has been in constant communication with the Club about the gantry to represent fans’ views and get a good outcome.   We met with both Kurt Pittman and Alan Walsh on New Road after the Nottingham Forest match. This was constructive and led to the club replacing the cladding around the

These proposals are known as the Whole Game Solution. The EFL has put together these proposals without structured fan consultation, and the vast majority

Update on New Road Gantry

After the Nottingham Forest game last night BIAS met with both Kurt Pittman and Alan Walsh to discuss the matter of the new gantry structure in New Road. We felt the meeting was constructive and although we are yet to reach an acceptable and final conclusion to the matter we understand that, as a first measure, the black hoarding around the new larger gantry will be replaced with a clear perspex surround. BIAS remain disappointed that the club failed to

Extension of the broadcast gantry on New Road

BIAS has been contacted by several members who have had changes to their view of the pitch from that which they had been led to expect. We have noted and welcomed Mark Devlin’s offer to allow unsatisfied season ticket holders to switch seats for those who wish to do so. We also know that the location of season ticket holders seats are important to them, so we have asked the club what else they are planning to do to resolve
