Albion supporters are encouraged to take photos with opposition fans.

As part of Brighton & Hove Albion supporting The FA Respect programme against Stoke City on Monday, the club is encouraging supporters to share photos of themselves shaking hands or fist bumping with opposition fans, using the hashtag #ForRespect on social media.

The Potters visit the Amex as Premier League action returns after the international break, and whether you’re heading to Falmer Station on the same train, queueing for a burger outside the ground, or working in the same office, share your love for ‘The Beautiful Game’ and show your colours.

The FA Respect Programme highlights that ‘good behaviour makes for a great game’, and by showing your ability to come together and put allegiances to one side, this message can spread across social media in a positive light.

A number of polaroid picture frames will also be floating around outside the Amex on Monday evening, so find a supporter of the opposing team, stand in front of the lens and share that photo ahead of the big game.

Albion’s players will also be showing their support for the programme, as they wear Respect-branded t-shirts before kick-off, while manager Chris Hughton will be wearing a pin badge to promote The FA’s message.

Ahead of the game, The FA National Respect Project Manager, Nathan French, said: "Social media can be a great platform to send out positive messages. It's fantastic that the Brighton & Hove Albion v Stoke City match has been designated to support and champion Respect.

“For anyone who is on social media and going to the game, I'd encourage you to get behind the messages and show your support."
"Disrespect gets a lot of air time, which is a shame as there is so much positive work being done to promote Respect. This is a great opportunity to play your part and talk about the positives!”
