05 January 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace supporters are being advised of the following important travel information ahead of the FA Cup fixture between the sides at the Amex on Monday night, kick-off 7.45pm.

Trains:
Southern Rail have informed us they are running a full evening match service, and post-match we have arranged for a football special to transport Crystal Palace fans from Falmer back to London, with the train stopping at Three Bridges, East Croydon, Selhurst, Clapham Junction and London Victoria.

This service departs Falmer at 22:41, therefore Crystal Palace fans are advised to remain inside the stadium for a short period, where the bars and catering outlets will be open, and you will be directed by police and stewards to Falmer station in time to board the train.
 
You are advised to check with Southern’s website before travelling.
 
Park & Rides: Mill Road, Brighton University at Lewes Road and Brighton Racecourse will be open at 16:45.
 
Brighton Racecourse - Please be advised for this match, parking will be on Market Side of the Racecourse, therefore access will be via Manor Hill. Please follow directions from stewards.
 
The track will be open for all supporters to walk across, this will allow them to access the buses at the main entrance.
 
For disabled supporters, your parking will be located within the hard-standing picnic area of the Racecourse, and you will enter via the main entrance off Freshfield Road, and please have your blue badge on show for entry.
 
Coaches: Due to additional safety measures for this match, the departure of coaches leaving the stadium will be 22:15
 
Car Parks: Sussex University (Car Park C) is now completely sold out, however the Bridge (Car Park B) has a limited number of spaces available to purchase, details via the club's website .
 
All vehicles entering Sussex University must use the entrance via Stanmer Park, as there will be no entry at Falmer or Knights Gate.
 
Post-Match: For our supporters leaving South Hospitality, the West, and North stands, you will be directed clockwise around the stadium, however please note all park-and-ride buses will operate until all the queues have been cleared, giving all supporters sufficient time to arrive at their located departure point.   
 
Seagull Travel: Will be running services from various locations, and spaces are available to pre-book via the Seagull Travel website. Please note, coaches will be departing at 22:15 - 15 minutes later than usual - due to the one-way system put in place for supporters exiting the ground after the full-time whistle.
 
Drop Offs & Pick-ups: There will be no pick-ups or drop-offs along Village Way.
 
Car park 5 at Sussex University by the Sports Hall, is being utilised to enable fans to be dropped off and picked up before and after the match. This drop-off/pick-up point is a short walk through the underpass to the Amex stadium. There is also free shuttle buses in operation.
 
Again, entry to Sussex University is via Stanmer Park only.
 
Please Note: Village Way will be extremely busy and congested, and unless you have pre-booked parking, please avoid this area both pre and post-match.
