Pre-Match Brief: Albion v Middlesbrough

19 October 2012

All the information you need ahead of tomorrow's match against Middlesbrough at the Amex...

After the international break, we are back in action tomorrow afternoon, when Middlesbrough visit the south coast, and we look forward to seeing you back at the Amex, when we have lots going on throughout the day.

As it is a Saturday afternoon, the match is one of Family Fun Day with face painters and balloon modellers out and about in the family stand ahead of kick-off – plus our young fans can collect the latest poster giveaway... this week it’s Bruno!

Tomorrow also sees two very important community initiatives: the start of the One Game, One Community weeks of action: a 12-day initiative to shine a light on some of the positive work those in football are doing, to help make our game accessible to all; and Macmillan Cancer Support will also be holding a bucket collection at the match – so please give generously.

All the latest team news, travel details and any further match information will be available at, on our official Facebook page and via the club’s official twitter feed @OfficialBHAFC.

New Chilli Pie and Pre-Match Offer!
Your favourite pie makers Piglets Pantry have a brand-new chilli pie for you to try – the ideal offering and perfect winter warmer as we move into the colder months.

We have another great pre-match offer for you, with a 50p discount on the burger meal deal, plus a free bag of KP nuts, to anyone purchasing before kick-off!

We will also have our usual range of food and beverages, including our usual varieties of the pies and Harvey’s ale.

Look out for any special post-match offers, which we will advertise on the big screens during the course of the game.

Who has Charlie Hammered this Week?
Inigo Calderon, Craig Mackail-Smith and Andrew Crofts are three of Charlie Oatway’s latest victims in his hilarious column in the club’s award-winning matchday programme.

The latest edition also features an exclusive with Martin Perry on the club’s new training ground plans; photos from Charlie’s testimonial lunch; BBC TV presenter Sid Sloane reveals his love for the Albion; plus interviews with Bruno, Casper Ankergren and Ryan Harley.

Make sure you pick up a copy, and look out for more sellers inside the stadium, pre-match, at half-time and after the match.

More Matchday Madness!
Another perfect winter offer, we have selected hats and scarves for just £5 at both the Seagulls Stores, at the Amex and in Queens Road, plus we have selected books discounted by up to 50% - perfect for those looking to get some early Christmas shopping done.

We will also have mobile sellers with hats and scarves, plus have you checked out our new mobile Seagulls Store unit on the south-west side of the ground?

You can buy a wide range of merchandise here, and you can also pay using e-cash to qualify for cashback.

Travel Guide
Fans are reminded the Mithras House park-and-ride site is not open tomorrow, and instead the club will be using Preston Barracks (on the opposite side of Lewes Road) for one match only.

Our usual full travel service is in operation for the match, with the trains, buses and park-and-ride included in the match-ticket package.

You can also book travel via our travel partners Seagull Travel, who pick up from points in all major Sussex towns.

For park-and-ride customers who will be arriving after 2pm, we strongly advise you to use the the Brighton Racecourse site (postcode BN2 9XZ), where we have excellent capacity and swift service.

There is car parking available just a few minutes' walk from the Amex, on a seasonal or match-to-match basis, at the new Bridge Car Park for all home matches.

Parking is available on a match-by-match basis for £13 per game – and we can accept late bookings as secure parking vouchers are now sent by email. To book please call the Customer Services team on 0845 873 0251.

E-Cash Guide
The club is pleased to announce a new auto top-up facility for 1901 Club members. This allows you to link your smartcard to a credit or debit card enabling an automatic transfer once your Seagulls e-cash reaches a minimum level set by you.

By using your smartcard to buy food and drink within the stadium, or merchandise in the Seagulls Stores, you will receive 10% cashback - and queuing time is significantly reduced. If you've not done it before, here is how you do it:

1. Visit the online Seagulls e-cash page via the fan tab at
2. Log in using your unique fan number, card number and password
3. Click top up in the My Details section, and follow the on-screen instructions

Once e-cash is loaded, you are ready to go and use your card to pay at the 1901 Club lounge bars and in the stores!

Once set up you won't need to manually top up, and it means you won't miss the opportunity to earn 10% cashback on items purchased at the Amex.

Click here to top up or to take advantage of the new auto top-up facility.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. Get behind the team and let’s make it another cracking day at the Amex.

Albion fans are advised that the Mithras House park-and-ride site will not be in operation tomorrow, but has been replaced with the Preston Barracks site on the opposite side of the road.
