This game, which is live on Sky Sports and is likely to attract the biggest home crowd for the season, will be used as a fundraising initiative to support Brentford FC and Bees United.
Bees United are currently trying to find a permanent home for Brentford Football Club and have already had detailed discussions with London Broncos about pursuing this dream together.
In recognition of this, and to assist Bees United with their continued search, London Broncos will donate part proceeds from all ticket sales to Bees fans, back to Bees United and Brentford FC.
Nic Cartwright, London Broncos Chief Executive said: "This is a fabulous opportunity for all sports fans in and around Hounslow to show their support at Griffin Park.
We have a great relationship with Brentford FC and with Bees United and we know more than most just how important it is for a sports club to have a permanent base."
Brentford FC play their final home game for the season at Griffin Park against Peterborough United on Saturday 3rd May and it is hoped that many fans at this game will then come back just six days later to support the Broncos and this fund raising initiative.
Gary Hargraves, Managing Director of Brentford FC, expects Bees fans will enjoy what they see: "Rugby League surprised me when I first saw it played, it's so fast, and exciting. "
John Mc Glashan, Chairman, Bees United is passionate about this initiative: "Everyone knows how hard we are working to give Brentford a permanent home. This gesture by the Broncos is great news for Bees United, and we are grateful to them for their support.
I urge every sports fan to come down to Griffin Park on May 9th and show your support."
If you would like to attend the game, then simply call the Broncos ticket line on 0871 222 1657 and order your ticket (pre-purchased adult tickets attract a ?2 discount). Quote "Bees United" when ordering your tickets and London Broncos will donate the funds back to Bees United and Brentford FC.
