Brighton & Hove Albion chairman Tony Bloom has called on fans to show their support for the club’s women’s team ahead of Sunday’s penultimate FA Women’s Super League match of the season against Arsenal at the Amex.
In an open letter to season-ticket holders, he said, “This season has seen Brighton & Hove Albion compete at the highest level of elite professional women’s football for the first time in our history.
“In our first season in The FA Women’s Super League, we have already secured top-flight football for next season and continue to be competitive against the top women’s teams in the country, in Europe’s first fully-professional women’s football league.
“We hope fans will be able to join us at the Amex for what we hope will be a great afternoon of elite women’s football.”
In this World Cup year, there has been huge momentum building in the women’s game, not least Atlético Madrid having an attendance of 60,739 at the Wanda Metropolitano for their fixture against Barcelona in March.
Albion’s final home match of the Women’s Super League season sees Arsenal visiting, knowing a victory will clinch the title for them.
General sale tickets are available at £3 for adults and £1 for under-18s and over 65s. Supporters are also advised that prices on the day of the match will increase to £5 for adults and £2 for under-18s and over-65s.
