Pre-Match Brief: Albion v Leicester City

6 December 2013

Albion host top-of-the-table Leicester City tomorrow afternoon – kick-off 3pm.

We’re expecting another bumper crowd for the game, and fans travelling by train from Brighton will see our mobile retail unit positioned outside the station, selling official merchandise, matchday programmes and match tickets from 10am.

For those of you getting to the Amex early, we’ll be showing the Derby v Blackpool game on TVs from 12.15pm, and the Manchester United v Newcastle United Premier League clash from 12.45pm. Post-match, the Sunderland v Spurs game will be on TVs from 5.30pm – along with our usual post-match highlights of the game.

Dick’s Bar will open at 11am and concourses will be open from 1pm.

Tickets for the game are still available and the club’s online print-at-home feature is the easiest, and cheapest, way to buy. Click here to buy online. Supporters can buy tickets in person from the stadium ticket office up to an hour and a half before kick-off, or over the phone on 0844 327 1901.

All the latest team news, travel details and any further match information is available at, on our official Facebook page and via the club's official Twitter feed @OfficialBHAFC in the build-up to the game. Plus check out our YouTube channel for free post-match interviews and highlights.

Tomorrow’s special pie will again be the Chicken Balti pie – back by popular demand, and this will be available in all concourse kiosks.

Pulled Pork baps will be available in the North Stand concourse, from the centre kiosk, and in the West Stand lower and West Stand upper concourses, from the kiosks at the south end. Like Tuesday night, these baps are priced at £3.90 each, and are available in the two for £6 or three for £7 meal deals.

The guest ale for this fixture is Everards Tiger and this will be available in the West Stand and North Stand.
