Away Fans’ Brief: Crystal Palace

By Kieran Cleeves • 05 January 2018

Crystal Palace fans attending the fixture at Brighton & Hove Albion on Monday are reminded that they must bring either their membership or season-ticket card with their match ticket and that the name on the season/membership card must also match the name on the ticket in order to gain entry.

The away end in the South Stand will open two hours before kick-off, and all fans entering the stadium will be searched, including all bags. All fans are advised to avoid bringing bags wherever possible to speed up the search process.

For this evening fixture, it is a condition of entry that all supporters must not have their face covered on entry to the stadium and will be asked to remove hats or hoods and lower scarves whilst passing through the turnstiles.  Once inside, supporters can put their hats..etc back on.

Brighton will be running their three usual park & ride sites at Mill Road, Brighton Racecourse and Mithras House - all opening at 16:45 - and Palace fans travelling by car are advised to head to the racecourse site.
The racecourse site [postcode BN2 9XZ] has the largest capacity and allows for the easiest access to and from the stadium. Please be advised that for this match, parking will be on Market Side of the Racecourse, therefore access will be via Manor Hill. Please follow directions from stewards.

There is no on-site parking available at the stadium, however there are a limited number of spaces at the Bridge (Car Park B) to purchase, details via the club's website
All visiting supporters can take advantage of the free subsidised travel within the free travel zone. Click here for more information. Palace fans will only need to buy a return ticket to Haywards Heath and can travel the rest of the journey for free.

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 supporters 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.

The pubs located within the immediate vicinity of Brighton Station have been designated as home only at the licensees’ discretion.
Visiting fans are advised that away friendly pubs and bars are located on West Street and include Yates and Wetherspoon - while the concourses in the away end will be open two hours prior to kick-off.
The club recommends that all fans allow at least an hour to travel by train from the mainline Brighton station to the stadium, in order to arrive in plenty of time before kick-off.
