The opening Sky Bet Championship game of 2016 sees Wolverhampton Wanderers visit the Amex. Kenny Jackett’s Wolves side held Albion to a 0-0 draw at Molineux earlier this season and go into the New Year sitting 11th in the Championship.
All park-and-ride and near-site parking sites are open as usual, and train services between Brighton and Falmer, and Lewes/Eastbourne and Falmer are expected to run as usual.
Fans travelling from London should also note that London Bridge station is closed over the festive period, with a replacement bus service for those travelling from London Victoria.
Albion's official travel partner, Seagull Travel, collects from over 120 pick-up locations covering East and West Sussex and surrounding counties. Seats can be booked via eventtravel-hub.co.uk or by calling 0845 9011 442.
The Seagulls Winter sale has up to 50% off across many lines in the stadium superstore. Dick’s Bar will open at 11.30am and the Seven Stars from noon. Our 1901 Club lounges will open at 12.30pm and concourses at 1.30pm.
Albion in the Community (AITC) will be in the fanzone for younger Albion fans to have a kick-about before watching the game. We are also inviting supporters to visit the bandstand, where we will be filming fans who wish to share their highlights and best memories from 2015.
In light of a recent security review, we will continue our proactive approach to supporter safety and we ask that all fans are patient and comply with stewards' requests when entering, once inside and on leaving the stadium.
Please ensure all coats and jackets are open and ready to be searched, and we would advise avoiding bringing any bags with you to the stadium unless it is absolutely necessary, as this may slow your entry, and that of other supporters, to the stadium.
