PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V BURNLEY

1 April 2016

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's game.


Brighton & Hove Albion host league leaders Burnley this Saturday in the early 12.30pm kick-off in the Championship.


This match features the top two sides in the league, for what is the first of eight massive games for the Albion.

We are expecting a sell-out crowd and we will need you all to play your part as the club embarks on potentially one of the biggest months in its history.

The reverse fixture at Turf Moor back in November saw both teams take a well-earned point, after an early strike from Bobby Zamora was cancelled out three minutes’ later by Andre Gray’s penalty.


Upon arrival


For this early kick -off, we encourage all supporters to arrive early at the Amex for a host of activities in the Fanzone.

Sussex County Cricket Club will be there with some family-friendly activities ahead of the new T20 season.

We will also launch our very own football pool table from 11am. We expect this to be extremely busy so please arrive early to avoid disappointment. To find out more about Football Pool, check them out on Twitter @FootballPoolUK.

Dick’s Bar and the Seven Stars Sports Bar are both open from 10am. The Lewes, Glynde and Beddingham Brass Band join us on the bandstand from 11am. The 2013 National Champions can be found on Twitter @LGBBRASS so give them a follow.


Food and Drink

The guest pie for the game will be Piglet’s Breakfast Sausage Roll and the guest ale is Two Hoots from the Joseph Holt Brewery.

Bacon rolls will also be sold on a first-come, first-served basis in the following concourses: West Lower 2, West Upper 2, East Lower 1, East Upper 2, North, South 2 and South 5.

A Bacon roll will be £4.00 and a combo with any hot drink is £5.00.

Train services between Brighton and Falmer, and from Lewes/Eastbourne to Falmer, are expected to run as usual.

Supporters who use the Lewes Road Park & Ride site are advised that the Watts Building car park will be accessed via a temporary entrance until further notice, due to building works. Further information can be found here.

Security Procedures

The security team will continue its 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.
