PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V BRENTFORD

9 September 2016

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


Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Brentford to the Amex this Saturday, kick-off 3pm.


Matchday travel update

Brighton & Hove Albion supporters are advised that there will be no parking available at the University of Sussex on Saturday for the home match with Brentford.

The university is expecting large volumes of traffic this weekend, as students return for the new term and so the club has sought alternative arrangements for this game.

Any supporters with seasonal parking packages or 1901 Club parking at Sussex University, should park at Car Park B (formerly known as the Bridge car park) for this match. For directions, please see our travel guide.

Please note there will be no cash parking available at Car Park B for this match, so fans are advised to use one of the club’s park & ride sites or to seek alternative methods of transport.

Disabled supporters who normally park at the University of Sussex, should park in the Upper Car Park at Brighton University (click here for a map). Community Buses will be in operation to transport fans to the lift at the stadium coach park.

Meanwhile, Southern have advised the club that they will operate a normal matchday rail service on Saturday, although supporters are advised to check Southern’s website for the latest updates.

All three park & ride sites will also be in operation from midday, although supporters using Brighton Racecourse are advised that access to the car park will be via the Manor Hill entrance.

The club will endeavour to publish any updates to matchday travel at seagulls.co.uk and via the club's Twitter feed.

LATEST NEWS FROM SEAGULLS.CO.UK 

Stadium superstore

The Volt goalkeepers’ kit is now on sale in the stadium superstore, though with limited availability in some sizes. We also have a large range of Nike training kit and the new home, away and third shirts all available to purchase before the match. The stadium superstore opens at 9am and closes at 2.45pm, opening again after the match until 6pm.


New barriers when entering the East and West lounges

New ticketing barriers have been fitted in the 1901 Club West Stand reception and 1901 Club East Stand which will be in operation for this Saturday's fixture. All members in the West and East Stands, including Gold members who previously entered through the North West and South West entrances, will now be required to enter through the main West Stand reception area.

With an additional number of ticket scanners, we hope this will improve access into 1901 Club lounges.

In the stadium concourses, the club’s catering partner Sodexo will be running a limited time offer for the first 30 minutes of opening, with an early bird offer of any food item and an alcoholic drink for just £8, or any food item and any soft drink for just £6.  Piglets Pantry’s Lamb Hotpot Pie is our guest item for this game.
