POSSIBLE BEAMBACK FOR FINAL TWO AWAY GAMES

7 April 2016

The club may broadcast the Charlton and Middlesbrough games live.


With away allocations for Brighton & Hove Albion's final two away matches at Charlton and Middlesbrough, both sold out, the club is looking at the possibility of beaming the games back to the American Express Community Stadium, so more Albion supporters can watch the two pivotal clashes live.

With huge demand for the two games, the club requested additional tickets for both fixtures from the two clubs, but with a further allocation of tickets unlikely for either, Albion have made a request to the Football League to broadcast the Charlton match live at the Amex.

Chief executive Paul Barber said, "We are getting superb support in this run-in, as we saw at Birmingham City on Tuesday, and against Burnley last weekend. We have had such high demand for both the Charlton and Middlesbrough games, vastly outstripping supply.

"We know there are many disappointed fans who haven't been able to secure tickets for one or both of these games, but are still very keen to watch these matches, so we will do everything we can to give them a chance to see both of them live.

"With regard to Charlton, we are confident we meet the strict UEFA criteria to beam the match back at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon, and we have already asked the Football League and Charlton to grant permission for us to do this.

"The final game against promotion rivals Middlesbrough on the final day of the season could still be selected for live broadcast, so we will have to wait until that decision is made by the Football League and Sky Sports - in the week ahead of that game - before knowing whether a beamback will be required.

"However, depending on the magnitude of the match, and even if it is being shown live on Sky, if the demand is there and we can secure the necessary permissions, we would look to utilise our various lounges at the Amex so fans who want to, can watch the game together."

Supporters are advised that beambacks are typically one camera feeds, with commentary for the matches subject to permission from the BBC.

Further details will be made available via seagulls.co.uk in due course.
