The May Bank Holiday weekend saw over 200 lucky Brighton & Hove Albion fans pitching up their tents within the confines of the American Express Community Stadium to spend the night camping on the pitch.
The lucky families in attendance enjoyed an afternoon of football with Albion in the Community coaches running age specific sessions in the inflatable pitch, which was erected on the field for the event.
Children aged from four through to 16 had the chance play on the sacred turf and even the adults had their own game before an evening meal was served in the BUPA lounge.

Campers were then treated to an evening film on the big screens, while some continued to play football despite the sun having well and truly set.
The next morning breakfast was served and the happy campers left to enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend.
The free event, that was open to Young Seagull members and families, received a huge number of positive reviews, with many expressing a wish to join the club again if another opportunity to camp out arises.
Louise and Fran Hayter said, “The whole evening had such a chilled out, happy vibe about it. We feel like we've been on holiday! Just a great night and a fabulous community event. Thank you so much to everyone involved!”
