FOUR NEW GROUNDS FOR ALBION TO VISIT

11 June 2017

The New Wembley Stadium, Etihad Stadium, London Stadium and Emirates Stadium.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s debut season in the Premier League will see the club visit four stadiums for the very first time, as the Seagulls travel to some of the finest sporting venues in European football.

Chris Hughton’s team will find out their Premier League schedule on Wednesday 14th June, and the likes of Anfield, Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge are all potential destinations for the opening game of the season.

But there are four grounds that the club has never visited - Emirates Stadium (Arsenal), Etihad Stadium (Manchester City), London Stadium (West Ham United) and the New Wembley Stadium (Tottenham Hotspur’s temporary home for next season).

Of course, the Seagulls played against Arsenal at their former home, Highbury, during the club’s first spell in England’s top flight, also not forgetting that memorable FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield Wednesday in 1983.

Albion met Manchester City at Maine Road on a number of occasions throughout the 1980s, as well as taking on the Hammers at Upton Park over the years, with Guy Butters scoring a memorable winner in 2004.

Spurs will play their home fixtures at the New Wembley Stadium next season, and despite coming close to walking out at the national team’s newest home, the Seagulls have yet to feature there since its redevelopment and opening in 2007.

What opening day game takes your fancy? Visit BrightonandHoveAlbion.com on Wednesday 14th June at 9am to find out Albion’s 2017/18 Premier League fixture list.
