BIAS would like to thank Brentford Football Club for responding to our concerns regarding the ticketing arrangements for the eagerly anticipated Celtic match, and welcome the Club’s decision to reconsider their original allocation plans for this prestigious friendly.
We asked the Club to take into account supporters’ feelings about the arrangements for this match and consider our proposals regarding the allocation of stands within Griffin Park.
It was the view of BIAS that Celtic fans should have been initially allocated the Bill Axbey Stand and the Brook Road Stand and that Brentford fans should have been allocated the BIAS stand and for the first two weeks of sale that the seating in the Bees United stand should have been sold on a Block by Block basis with any unsold tickets going on general sale and we are pleased that this will now be the case.
This Celtic match is our Club’s most prestigous friendly for a number of years and has been arranged to give our team an even bigger challenge as they prepare for the new season.
Celtic who are Scottish champions and who reached the last 16 of the Champions League last season are of such a high stature that they demand a fee to play in these games.
Tickets for this high profile friendly are on sale NOW and Bees fans have a two week period to show the Football club that they were right to change their arrangements and to purchase their tickets for the BIAS and Bees United stands.
Should the demand prove to be sufficient, The Bees United Stand will be exclusively for home supporters only, however if sales for this part of the ground are slow, the area at the Brook Road end of the stand will go on General Sale.
BIAS hopes that those supporters who were anticipating staying away now reconsider and purchase their tickets within the initial two week window.
Tickets can bought by visiting the Ticket Office at Griffin Park which is open from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday or ordered by telephone on 0845 3456 442 – option 4.
