PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V HUDDERSFIELD

22 January 2016


Following three away fixtures culminating in a hard-fought win against Blackburn Rovers, Albion are back at the Amex on Saturday for the visit of Huddersfield Town.

Albion have drawn their past five encounters with the Terriers, who have mustered seven points from a possible nine so far in 2016.


Travel update

Brighton & Hove Albion fans travelling from north of Brighton by train should note that there will be a train replacement bus service operating between Three Bridges and Brighton.

Those travelling via Three Bridges to Brighton, or any stations in between, will be impacted, therefore fans travelling this route are strongly advised to allow extra time to make their journeys to the game.

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

All park-and-ride and near-site parking sites are open as usual.

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.


Upon arrival

The Seagulls Winter sale has further reductions of up to 50% off across many lines in the stadium superstore. Dick’s Bar will open at 11.30am and the Seven Stars from noon. Our 1901 Club lounges will open at 12.30pm and concourses at 1.30pm.

All bars, concourses and lounges will be showing the early Championship game between Queens Park Rangers and Wolverhampton Wanderers (12.30pm kick-off) as well as the Premier League fixture between Norwich and Liverpool (12.45pm kick-off).

Albion in the Community (AITC) will be in the Fanzone for younger Albion fans to have a kick-about before watching the game. We have fan favourites Sussex Steel joining us on the bandstand from 1.30pm, with the adjacent Hop bar open for this fixture.


Security Procedures


In light of a recent security review, we will continue our 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.
