Brighton & Hove Albion have reviewed the security procedures ahead of this weekend's visit of Birmingham City to ensure supporter safety remains of paramount importance.
The club's security team always adopts a proactive approach to supporter safety at the Amex and we ask that all fans are patient and comply with stewards' requests when entering, once inside and on leaving the stadium.
We would also strongly advise that you arrive at the stadium at least 30-45 minutes earlier than usual. Please note, security WILL NOT be reduced or compromised in the event of queues forming to clear security.
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.

It is also important that all visitors to the Amex remain vigilant, do not leave bags or other items unattended and report anything that they believe may be suspicious to a steward, police officer or a member of the club's staff.
Security incidents in the UK are far from commonplace, but it is important that we all remain alert. Fans should report suspicious or unusual behaviour to a police officer, a steward or other member of the club's staff at the earliest opportunity.
We thank you in advance for your co-operation, patience and understanding in this matter.
