Brighton & Hove Albion's operations team is continuing preparations for this autumn's Rugby World Cup fixtures, and visitors to the Amex should be aware of changes to non-matchday parking arrangements to conform with the tournament venue safety specifications in the build up to the event.
The club has installed a new barrier system at the main entrance and exit on Village Way, and completed a renovation of Bennett's Field. This will now be used for all non-matchday visitors - including conference and events guests, and those using the store, museum or Dick's Bar with effect from Friday 3rd July 2015.
Albion chief executive Paul Barber explained, "We've made some changes ahead of the two Rugby World Cup fixtures in September - changes which will make us ready for hosting the two matches, but also enhance our general security and simplify day-to-day operations. A key requirement is to minimise the number of vehicles on the external concourse.
"Bennett's Field has been acquired on a new, long-term lease and has been re-modelled during the summer. It will now serve as the club's car park for all visitors on non-matchdays."

Visitors should report to the stadium gatehouse on arrival, where they will be greeted and directed where to park.
Visitors are advised that Bennett's Field includes allocated disabled parking at the point closest to the stadium. Should visitors to the stadium require additional assistance, please advise the club’s staff on arrival at the gatehouse.
Deliveries that require access to the external concourse will be issued a one-time permit to access the external concourse on the day of delivery.
Information regarding onsite matchday parking will be communicated in due course.
We would like to thank all visitors for their assistance and cooperation.
