Brentford Football Club competes in the EFL Championship and are based in London. They play their games at the newly built Brentford Community Stadium, having been at Griffin Park since 1904. They were founded in 1889 and have three main West London rivals – Chelsea, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers. They have a bitter rivalry with Fulham with matches sometimes been spoilt by trouble between the fans. The same applies to QPR, especially after they tried to take over Brentford which would have resulted in Brentford quitting the football league.
Brentford’s nickname is ‘The Bees’ dating back to a chant in the 1890s – ‘Buck up Bs’. Local papers misheard the chant as ‘Buck Up Bees’ and the name stuck. They play in red and white striped shirt, complete with black shorts. This has been the colour of the kit since 1925, with the exception of one season. in 1960-1961 they used yellow and blue, but reverted back to the red and white the following season. The club badge is a double roundel with the year they were founded, club name with a large bee.
The best period for Brentford was in the 1930s when they came in the top 6 on 3 successive occasions in the top flight. They have been Football League Trophy finalists three times. They have received the Quarter-Final of the FA Cup fours times, most recently in 1988-89.
