Brentford have insisted their preferred option is to stay at Griffin Park rather than ground share if they win promotion to the Premier League.
With the new ground at Lionel Road not expected to be ready for a few years yet, Griffin Park currently falls short of the top flight's stadium requirements.
But with the Bees currently fifth in the Championship following a storming start to the season, speculation has been rife amongst supporters about possible ground shares if they reach the promised land.
As well as other west London football stadiums, the likes of Reading FC have been mooted, as well as rugby stadiums like Harlequins' Twickenham Stoop.
But Brentford chief executive Mark Devlin told the club's website: “As we have said before, our primary aim is to stay at Griffin Park until our new stadium at Lionel Road South is complete, whatever division we are playing in.
“Every Championship club has to submit their plans for meeting Premier League rules, and we are working on that now.
“Clubs will be required to put these in to action upon promotion, so it is not an exercise to be taken lightly. Griffin Park falls short of meeting Premier League requirements in some areas.
“In order to complete this document properly, we are looking at creative and innovative solutions to meet those requirements. We will submit those ideas to the Premier League, as is required, in January.
“Should we be unable to meet the regulations at Griffin Park, one alternative is to ground share. If a ground share is required, the club will consider all stadiums in the local area, both those currently used for football and not.
“I should stress that no conversations have taken place with any other club or third party. Club representatives have only spoken to the Football League in order to ensure we complete the document by January 31.”
Areas in which Griffin Park fall short include media working areas of mandatory size, sufficient floodlighting, undersoil heating and dressing room dimensions.
