The Athletic Feature: Brentford Fans in the USA

Brentford FC beat writer Jay Harris of The Athletic caught up with NYC Bees Charlie Corr and Levar Riley (among many others) to chat about their Bees fandom and the growth of the club support in the United States.

Charlie Corr: "When Brentford won the Championship playoff final, I was at my mother-in-law's house in Arkansas. I was screaming at the TV downstairs in the basement. They heard me and were thinking, 'what is he watching?' I'm pretty sure I was the only person in the state of Arkansas who cared about them getting promoted.

Levar Riley: "I did some homework to really find a club that played an exciting style of football, had strong community ties and a true family atmosphere. A club's record of supporting inclusivity meant a lot more to me than even winning trophies. Once I found Brentford, it was clear the club and supporters checked all the boxes. I've been a fan ever since."
