At a time when football supporters often feel clubs are out of touch with their fans and some communities have seen their clubs disappear, Bees United has fought for a unique role in ensuring that Brentford remains a club which we, the fans, can call our own.

Bees United is unique as the only fan group in the Premier League with a seat on the main board of its club.

We also have a ‘special share’ to safeguard its long-term future. enshrined in the articles of association of Brentford FC Ltd. This is irrespective of any government initiative which may seek regulatory influence over the way football clubs are owned and run.

BU earned these rights by saving the club from financial disaster back in 2006 and then, beginning the partnership with Matthew Benham which led to him becoming Brentford’s owner and the Club’s promotion to the Premier League.

We are proud of our club and its progress to the Premier League since we ensured its survival and we now have seats on the Brentford Fan Advisory Board.

We are confident of the future of Brentford FC, under the ownership model we helped create.
