Important information ahead of Tuesday night's game.

Brighton & Hove Albion can confirm that the industrial action due to take place on the rearranged home match with Cardiff City has been suspended, and the club has updated its travel contingency plans accordingly.

As a result of the rail strikes being suspended, both of the shuttle services from Lewes station and the Old Steine in Brighton city centre have now been cancelled, with no free parking at Lewes station.

All fans intending to use the train are strongly advised to check Southern’s website before travelling.

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 would like to reiterate its thanks to Sky Bet, who have kindly agreed to sponsor the contingency plans for Tuesday night.

Any updated information will be published, if and when it becomes available.

Park & Rides

The three park & rides at Mill Road, the University of Brighton and at the Racecourse will be open as usual at 5pm.

Additional buses have been booked at all three sites to cope with the increased demand.

Park & Ride Shuttle Services

The park and ride shuttle service at the Sainsbury’s West Hove site is now completely sold out.

There is still availability at Brendon’s Equestrian Centre in Pyecombe, which is open from 5pm.

All parking and bus seats are free of charge, but must be booked in advance via

Seagull Travel

Additional buses have been secured through Seagull Travel and spaces are available to pre book via the Seagull Travel website.

Car Parks

Parking spaces at both the Bridge (Car Park B) and Sussex University (Car Park C) are completely sold out and there will be no cash sales on the day.

Drop Offs & Pick-ups after the match

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.

Fans choosing to travel to the game by car are asked to be patient, with delays of up to an hour possible after the match.
