Away Days: Brentford

23 February 2015

Plan Tuesday's Trip

Blackpool will take to Griffin Park for the first time since August 2006 when they meet Brentford on Tuesday evening.
 
Eight seasons ago Pool opened up their campaign against The Bees, but this time the points are even more vital.
 
It's The Seasiders' second successive away game, after the short trip to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, and here is a guide on getting to Griffin Park.
 
By Car
On the road the journey takes around four hours, with just under 250 miles separating the two clubs.
 
Braemar Road,
Brentford,
Greater London,
TW8 0NT
 
By Train
On the train supporters should travel from Preston to London Euston, a journey which takes around two hours 15 minutes, while departures from Blackpool North for Preston are frequent enough. The nearest tube station to Griffin Park is Brentford, and takes 53 minutes from London Euston.
 
The Stadium
Griffin Park is the only stadium in the Football League with a pub on all four corners of the ground and has been home to Brentford since it was built in 1904.
 
The current capacity stands at 12,763, but the record attendance came in 1949 when 38,678 supporters watched an FA Cup quarter final with Leicester City.
 
Blackpool's last visit to Griffin Park came in 2006, when the hosts won 1-0 on the opening day.
 
Tickets
Tickets go off sale at Bloomfield Road at 1pm on Monday, but will be available to buy on the night. Tickets available are standing.
 
Adults: £25
Seniors: £19
