Brentford Owner Benham Has Invested $24M In Club Since Taking Over In June

League One Brentford revealed that Owner Matthew Benham has invested £15.2M ($24M) in the club since taking over in June, according to Giuseppe Muro of the London EVENING STANDARD. That figure "does not include the money he spent to purchase the land located at Lionel Road South," where Brentford plans to build a new 15,000-20,000 seat stadium for the start of the '16-17 season. Brentford reported a £5M ($7.9M) loss, and its wage bill has increased by 20% from the previous year and is now more than £5M. Brentford is "expected to make" £1M ($1.6M) from its FA Cup run (EVENING STANDARD, 1/30).
