Brentford super fan Audrey Baker to take centre stage at new stadium

2 min

Lifelong Brentford fan Audrey Baker has become the first Bees supporter to secure her seat at the new Community Stadium.

With work well underway on the multi-million pound project, Audrey will be in place for the Bees’ first game at their new home in the summer of 2020 – just after her 100th birthday.

Super fan Audrey, a Brentford fan of 88 years, alongside her partner Roy Romain, have secured premium seats for the 2020/21 season via ‘Club 1889’ meaning they will enjoy fine dining and comfort on matchdays.

Ealing-born Audrey is one of Brentford’s oldest fans and started attending matches at Griffin Park before World War II.

She first came to Griffin Park with her father in the 1930’s and lists Dai Hopkins and the prolific goal scorer Jack Holliday as her favourite players of yesteryear.

The 98-year-old also became Patron of our “Babees”, “Bee Team” and “Juniors” membership schemes, for supporters up to the age of 18, earlier this season with the seat purchase securing her own space in the club’s history.

Speaking on the announcement, she said: “Brentford has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. It was an honour to be the first person to buy a seat and I cannot wait to watch a game there.”

Cliff Crown, Brentford FC Chairman, said: “Audrey has shown her commitment to Brentford and our ambitions by supporting our junior memberships and I am very pleased she is looking after herself as well.

“We believe Hospitality the Brentford Way will be something special and we’re delighted that long-standing fans want to be part of it. I look forward to seeing Audrey and Roy at our first game, and many more – we are counting down the days.”

As the Junior Bees Patron, Audrey was given first sight of the new seats along with club partners and existing hospitality purchasers.

Fans that have registered their interest in hospitality at Brentford Community Stadium will be able to see what we have on offer next month.
