Coin & Object Throwing at Griffin Park

Unfortunately over the last season there have been numerous instances of fans throwing objects onto the pitch. This is not acceptable. It puts the Club at risk of being penalised and brings down the hard earned good reputation of Brentford FC. BIAS discourages this mindless behaviour and would support the club in pursuing the strongest sanctions, including long term bans, for anyone throwing objects. It’s been
