Brentford kick off their maiden Premier League campaign with the visit of Arsenal to the Brentford Community Stadium.

The West London club cemented their place in the 2021/22 top flight lineup after beating Swansea City 2-0 in the Championship playoff final at Wembley in May.

The Bees have never played Premier League football before and were a League One outfit just 7 years ago, enjoying a remarkable rise to the first tier of the English game.

Not only are Brentford set to embark upon their debut Premier League season, but they are also hoping to enjoy their first full campaign with spectators present in their new ground.

The Brentford Community Stadium opened in September 2020 and replaced the Bees’ original home of Griffin Park, a venue famed for having a pub on all four corners of the stadium.

Their new home offers a more modern flavour and will host its first ever Premier League game when Arsenal make the short trip across London on the weekend of Saturday 14th August.

The Gunners last met Brentford in a League Cup tie at the Emirates in 2018 but haven’t travelled to Brentford since 1947.
