PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V BIRMINGHAM

3 April 2017

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


Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Birmingham City to the Amex tomorrow, kick-off 7.45pm.


Matchday travel update

Trains

The club has been informed by Southern Rail that the rail strike that was due to take place on this day has now been cancelled and a full matchday service will be in operation.

Supporters are still advised to check Southern’s website before travelling.


Park & Rides


The three park & rides at Mill Road, the University of Brighton and at the Racecourse will be open from 5pm. Additional buses have also been put on for this fixture.

A free shuttle bus service from Sainsbury’s at West Hove will be open from 17:45, but all parking spaces and bus seats must be pre-booked via seagullstickets.com


Buses

Both Brighton & Hove Buses and Stagecoach will be running their normal weekday operations.


Car Parks

The Bridge (Car Park B) has completely sold out for this fixture. We advise fans to use the public transport options available to get to the stadium.


Drop-Offs & Pick-Ups  

Please note there will be no pick-ups or drop-offs along Village Way, due to the large volume of buses and coaches. Therefore the club will be opening car park 5 (within Car Park C) at Sussex University by the Sports Hall, to enable fans to be dropped off and picked up before and after the match.

Please note that all vehicles entering Sussex University must enter via Stanmer Park, as there will be no entry at Falmer or Knights Gate. Please note that wherever possible, all fans are advised to get to the stadium as early as possible regardless of how they are travelling. The club will also publish updated information if and when it becomes available.


Seagull Travel

Additional buses and spaces are available to pre-book through Albion's official travel partner, Seagull Travel. Seagull Travel collects from over 120 pick-up locations covering East and West Sussex and surrounding counties. Seats can be booked via www.seagull-travel.co.uk.
