PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V LEEDS

28 February 2016

All you need to know ahead of Monday night's game.


After three consecutive away games the Albion welcome Leeds United to the Amex this Monday evening for what is only the fifth game the club has played on 29th February.
 
The last time we played on this date was back in 1992, and for any fan old enough to remember, they may recall it was a significant date in the club's history: the day Brighton Independent Supporters Association (BISA) was effectively born.
 
A post-match gathering was the first-ever fan-led event, and it later developed into the Save the Albion, Fans United, Bring Home the Albion and Falmer For All campaigns.
 
It's something as a club we can all be proud, and over the weekend, and in the build up to the match, we will be asking fans to share their fan memories of these campaigns via social media. We also have some special promotions at the Amex on Monday, and feature interviews in the match programme.
 

Travel update


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 from the car park for the Watts Building will be accessed via a temporary entrance until further notice, due to building works. Further information can be found here.
 
Albion's official travel partner, Seagull Travel, collects from over 120 pick-up locations covering East and West Sussex and surrounding counties. Seats can be booked via eventtravel-hub.co.uk or by calling 0845 9011 442*.


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.
