WOMEN'S PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V MANCHESTER CITY

19 October 2018

Linton Rogers

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Manchester City to the Broadfield Stadium for Sunday’s FA WSL encounter, kick-off 2pm.

The Seagulls claimed their first league point of the season in last weekend's draw away at Everton, where an Ellie Brazil brace brought the scores level after the hosts had taken a 3-1 lead in the second half.

Hope Powell's side will be looking to upset the odds when they take on former FA WSL champions Manchester City this weekend.

TRAVEL INFORMATION

Those looking to travel via car should note that there is a car park at the stadium, which is free, although spaces are very limited and only available on a first-come-first-served basis.

There are other free parking options available, such as the William Reed car park which is just a few minutes’ walk from the stadium on Brighton Road. These are signposted as you approach the stadium.

To view other travel options to the match, please see the club’s travel guide at BrightonAndHoveAlbion.com/women.

OPENING TIMES

The turnstiles will open at 1pm on Sunday, with matchday programmes sold inside the ground for just £2 each.   

Before entering the stadium find one of our members of staff to pick up your free flag as you head through the turnstile, where we will have a photo booth, face painting, and other fun activities for you to enjoy.     

Fans can also access the Redz Bar behind the South Stand, which will be open from 12pm.

PRE-MATCH

Local recreational football team Crawley Old Girls (COGS), will be hosting a participation round-robin event on the 3G ball court opposite Redz Bar in the South Stand.

The session will start at 11.30am where seven teams will be in attendance; however, individuals are encouraged to bring their trainers and participate themselves. So if you’re interested, make sure you pop along to the ball court and have a go.
