PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V CHELTENHAM TOWN

12 August 2014



Attention turns to the Capital One Cup for the Albion players, coaches and supporters as Sami Hyypia’s side welcome League Two Cheltenham Town to the Amex – kick-off 7.45pm.

As this fixture is not a league game, it is not included within the season ticket package, so all supporters are required to purchase a ticket to attend the game. Supporters are also reminded that the Gold membership, which enables supporters to have all cup games automatically updated to their smartcards, has not yet been launched for the 2014/15 season. This will be in place by December, in time for the FA Cup third round draw.

Read on for ticket information and we also have some very important travel changes for this game.

All of the latest pre-match news is also available throughout the build-up to the game on our official Facebook page and the official Twitter feed @OfficialBHAFC, while behind-the-scenes images will continue to be published on our Instagram feed (@officialbhafc).

In tonight’s Seagull, cover star Shamir Fenelon – who made his Albion debut against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday – tells us how his love of classical music is helping him prepare for games.

Important Travel Information…
To make the ticket prices as low as possible for supporters, the travel levy is not included within the ticket package for this game and the park & ride services will not be running.

We do have parking spaces available at The Bridge car park, however there is very limited availability; if you would like one of these spaces we advise that you purchase in person at the Amex Stadium during the day.

Alternatively, supporters can book coach travel via Seagull Travel, who pick up from points in all major Sussex towns – and even further afield, while Southern Rail will be providing full matchday rail services, to and from the Amex Stadium. Click here to plan your train journey.
