Brentford have arranged coach travel for Bees fans travelling to France to take on Swiss side FC Lausanne-Sport on July 15.

The west London club were due to play in Swiss town St Prex but, after inspecting the pitch, opted to move the game to their training camp in Divonne-les-Bains.

Fans will need to get to the Stade de Marcy in order to get the coach from there to the venue.

Brentford head of football operations Robert Rowan told the club's official website: “We look forward to welcoming the travelling supporters to Divonne-les-Bains.

“This is where Dean, his staff and players have been working hard over the last few days and was the most suitable venue for the match at such late notice.

“It must be noted that this is not a stadium and therefore hospitality won’t be the same but I’m sure it will be enjoyable watching the lads compete in their second pre-season friendly this season.

“The first team players and staff will be around after the match should you wish to get some photographs and/or autographs.

“We ask for our supporters’ full cooperation on arrival at the training centre as the Mayor of Divonne-les-Bains has been kind enough to offer us this facility at late notice when it would’ve been easier to say no due to other activities in the area.”

However, FC Lausanne-Sport have expressed their unhappiness about the situation and disagreed with the decision to move the fixture.

A club statement read: “The decision to move this match is due to the reservations made by Brentford FC regarding the quality of the infrastructures present in St Prex.

“An opinion that FC Lausanne-Sport does not share and regrets. The English club being determined not to change its position, the LS was obliged, for sporting reasons, to keep the match in a different place chosen by the organiser.

“In more bad news, this meeting place in Divonne-les-Bains will have to be held in camera, since the necessary authorisations have not been obtained to make this match a public event.”

President of Amical Saint-Prex Stephane Porzi has attacked the Bees for their attitude, although he did concede their pitch had holes.

"We thought our field was a pool. It must be assumed that this is not the case. Or not enough for Brentford, anyway," he told

"They came twice. We discussed, but nothing to do. They did not want to play with us. Maybe they were surprised by the lack of stands, I do not know.

“Our field is beautiful, we worked a lot on it, but it is true that it is not perfect like that of a professional team.

“There are small holes, but nothing very serious. We received Servette in particular and there were absolutely no complaints.

“Basel can come and play tomorrow without any problems. We are going to say that it is a little pity.”
