Bees United exists to safeguard Brentford Football Club (BFC) so that it has a stable and sustainable future as a professional football club. Our role is to represent our members, the supporters of BFC and the local community to ensure that BFC remains a club we can all call our own.
Bees United was formed with founding twin aims. Firstly, to give ordinary football supporters a greater say in the sustainable future of Brentford Football Club. Secondly, to bring the Club closer to the local community. Fifteen years on Bees United is still working under the guiding principles of sustainability and community.
Bees United’s main focus today is ensuring the long-term future of Brentford Football Club. The extraordinary investment from Matthew Benham makes this task considerably easier, but Bees United still plays a vital role in the running of the Club:
Bees United is committed to strengthening the bonds between the Club, and the community which it serves. Furthermore, Bees United represents the interests of this community in the running of the Club.
Supporters Direct defines a Supporters’ Trust as: “A democratic, not-for-profit organisation of supporters, committed to strengthening the voice for supporters in the decision making process at a club, and strengthening the links between the club and the community it serves.” Bees United operates to ensure that our children, and our children’s children have a football club at the heart of their community, so that they can collect and cherish memories of Brentford Football Club, like the generations of supporters before them.
