Brentford Football Club will host Premier League side Southampton next month in a bid to raise funds for the Grenfell Tower Disaster Fund.

The Bees will donate all profits from the friendly, scheduled to take place next month (July 22) at Griffin Park at 3pm, to the victims of the tragic blaze.

More than 60 people have been confirmed dead, with many others now either missing or homeless, after the fire began in the early hours of Wednesday morning last week.

More than £3m has been raised through JustGiving appeals so far to the cause, in addition to the thousands of people that have donated clothes, food and shelter to those affected.

Brentford CEO Mark Devlin said: ‘Firstly, I would like to add the sincere condolences of the Club to those who have lost family and friends, our thoughts and prayers are with them. The Club is situated relatively close to the site of the disaster, and we wanted to do something to support our community and those affected. Brentford is very much a Community Club and I’m delighted that Southampton have joined with us in donating the profits from the ticket sales of our Friendly match. We also anticipate there will be other fundraising activities on the day and we hope that as many fans as possible will be able to attend the game, so that we can raise as much as possible’.

Ticket information for the friendly will be announced soon.
