Hospitality guests dining in any restaurant will still be required to wear shoes; trainers will not be permitted in dining areas. All other 1901 Club dress code applies.

Cashless Stadium Roll-Out

Working with American Express and catering partner Sodexo, the stadium’s catering kiosks, hospitality bars, merchandise store and programme booths will switch to card payments only for all matches and event days by August 2020, or possibly even sooner.

A reminder that a phased roll-out of the cashless system takes place at the Burnley game.

The club has already begun a phased roll-out, with the kiosk on the north side in East Upper, and the middle catering kiosks in all other home concourses taking credit or debit card payments only.

We remind all Brighton & Hove Albion and visiting supporters that bottles with tops on them are prohibited at the Amex Stadium.

Our stewards will be strictly enforcing this policy, and bottle tops will also be removed from drinks sold inside the stadium.
