BREAKING: Brentford get promoted to the Premier League

Brentford FC have been promoted to the Premier League for the 2021/2022 season after winning the Championship Playoff Final vs Swansea City.

Brentford went 2-0 up thanks to goals from Ivan Toney & Emiliano Marcondes, both coming in the first half.

This Brentford FC's first time being in the top flight for 74 years, which will be a truly special moment for the club and its fans.

Brentford beat Swansea 2-0 at Wembley to clinch promotion to the English Premier League for the first time in 73 years.

In the north London sunshine, a crowd of 20,000 fans produced a raucous ruckus as supporters from both teams soaked up the biggest event on the Football League calendar.

And the Swans' terrible start became significantly worse after Ivan Toney converted a penalty after Freddie Woodman had hauled down Josh Dasilva on 10 minutes.

Emi Marcones pounced on to a pass by Mads Roserlev and scored with aplomb just eight minutes later to make things even better for the Bees.

But, despite applying sustained pressure, the Swans' task was made even more difficult when Jay Fulton was sent off for a horrible tackle on Mathias Jensen.

It made an already difficult assignment even tougher, and the south Wales side labored in the final quarter as Brentford clinched promotion to the Premier League.
