Travel Guide……Parking Available
There is car parking available at the Bridge car park. Supporters can pay with cash on the gate (subject to availability).

The Bridge car park is just a few minutes' walk from the Amex and costs £15 on the day. For future reference, if parking is booked online or via the ticket office, in advance of our 4pm Wednesday postal cut-off, it is available for £13. For midweek matches, cut-off is the preceding Friday at 4pm.

Alternatively, our full travel service is in operation for the match, with the trains, buses and park-and-ride services 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 – and even further afield.

For park-and-ride customers who will be arriving after 1.30pm, we strongly advise you to use the Brighton Racecourse site (postcode BN2 9XZ), where we have excellent capacity and a swift service.

Food and Drink
We will have the usual range of food and drink on offer, with the new pulled-pork baps proving popular and a guest lamb hotpot pie on the menu in all kiosks, subject to availability, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The meal deal is any hot food item with chips and a soft drink for £8.50. You can also choose a hot food item, soft drink and a snack (crisps or chocolate bar) for £7.00. And on either deal you can upgrade to a pint of beer for £1 extra.

Guinness will be available in the North Stand kiosks 1 & 2 and in Dick's Bar – it will be introduced to the remaining stands during the coming weeks.

Elsewhere, we have introduced extra mobile Harvey’s and Foster's units on all concourses, and we are also looking at expanding the range of draught and bottled beers, and ciders across all stands.

Finally, the guest ale from Lancashire will be Trooper, from Robinson’s brewery, and this will be available from the end kiosks in the North Concourse. This golden ale has been brewed by the vocalist from Iron Maiden, Bruce Dickinson.

We also have some brand new products in store for you this weekend, which includes the Season Review 2012/13: Part Two DVD, priced at £9.99.

The DVD features all the action from the second half of the memorable 2012/13 season, when Albion recorded their highest finish for 30 years.

The Seagulls Superstore has also taken delivery of a range of brand new T-shirts, which are priced at Two-for-£20. These will be available in store before and after the game.

Elsewhere, the mobile units in the North, East and West Stands will also be open before and after the game selling a whole range of matchday merchandise, including replica shirts, hats, scarves and flags.

If you would like to have your name and number added to your existing replica shirt this can be done in the mobile shop situated in front of the North Stand, while-you-wait.

Win Up To £1,000 with the Hat-Trick Lottery
Following record sales at the Derby County match, the Albion’s Hat-Trick matchday lottery returns on Saturday, and as always there are three chances to win.

For every game this season the Lucky Number jackpot is worth up to £1,000, while matching the first goal time could win you £100.

Long-term supporters Donatello, SeaLife and Buddies have been joined by Cineworld, Seagull Travel and stadium caterers Sodexo in offering a huge number of Instant Win prizes.

The price remains at £1, so look out for sellers on the approach to the Amex Stadium and inside the concourses.
