Brighton & Hove Albion will be providing all 2,200 travelling supporters making the 700-mile round trip to Newcastle United, a special voucher for a "pie/hot dog and a soft drink/bottle of beer” on arrival at St James' Park.

The club was keen to reward Albion supporters for their continuous backing of the team, in what is one of the club’s longest away trips of the season.

Albion chief executive, Paul Barber, said, “The fixture calendar wasn’t too kind to us for this particular away game between Christmas and New Year but, despite this, we will still be taking over 2,000 supporters to Newcastle, with some fans boarding coaches very early on Saturday morning and not returning back to Brighton until the early hours of New Year’s Eve.

“Our fans have provided great support to Chris, his staff, and our players on the road all season, but this very long road trip at an expensive time of year and in challenging travel conditions, represents an extra special effort to get behind the team for an important away game, so we wanted to make a small gesture as a special thanks to our travelling supporters.”
