Description: Griffin Park

Quite anonymous for international readers, the club from West London is based in its ground since 1904. The name Griffin Park derives from the symbol of a brewery that used to stand here before stadium was built. And alcohol remains a bigpart of history here with Griffin Park being known as the only venue in England with a pub in every corner. A uniqueness we have a lot of sympathy for...

Because of its location below aircraft route to Heathrow the stadium gained a sponsor that exposes his logo on top of the roof, visible to plane passengers – Qatar Airlines.

Currently the ground accommodates 12,300 people, but in its history there were some giant games, like the match against Leicester City from 1949, watched live by lamost 40,000 fans. A year before that part of the Olympic football tournament was played here. Italy smoothly went through USA with a 9:0 score.
