PRE-MATCH BRIEF: ALBION V SOUTHAMPTON

29 March 2019

Patrick Sullivan
The pre-match brief for Albion v Southampton

Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Southampton to the Amex in the Premier League on Saturday 30th March, kick-off 3pm.

The match sponsor for this fixture is Brighton Tools & Fixings, the ball sponsor is REESINK Turfcare and the kit sponsor is GAP Solutions.

This game is in support of Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion organisation, who celebrate their 25th anniversary this year.

Since 1993, Kick It Out has worked throughout the football, education and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change.

Fans attending matches at the Amex can report incidents of discrimination directly to a steward, or via the Kick It Out app. These incidents are then communicated to the club to investigate.

Another way of reporting an incident of discrimination and anti-social behaviour directly to the club is via our dedicated hotline number which is 07880 196442.

We will also be supporting The Premier League’s ‘No Room for Racism’ campaign at tomorrow’s match which sits neatly alongside the fantastic work of Kick It Out.

Travel Information

All supporters are asked to head to the stadium as early as possible regardless of how they are travelling.

Trains: Southern Rail have informed the club that services to and from Falmer will be enhanced both pre and post-match. Please note that there will be a bus replacement service operating between Three Bridges and both Lewes and Brighton respectively due to the Brighton Mainline Improvement project.

Car Parks: All parking at both the Bridge (Car Park B) and at Sussex University (Car Park C) has now sold out, and there will be no cash sales on the day.

All vehicles accredited to park at the University of Sussex must enter via Stanmer Park, as there will be no entry at Falmer or Knights Gate; however, please be aware that due to roadworks along the Southern Ring Road, the University will have a traffic light system in operation.

Village Way will be extremely busy and congested, and supporters are advised to avoid this area both pre- and post-match, unless they have pre-booked parking.

Buses: Brighton & Hove Buses will be operating a full Saturday service within the travel scheme, therefore free travel is available to supporters on production of a match ticket, but please check the club's website for areas within the bus travel scheme.

Parking: There is no local street parking available for football supporters, as all areas have a residents' parking scheme in operation, and enforcement officers will be on patrol.

Seagull Travel: Seagull Travel will be running their usual matchday services from various locations, and spaces are available to pre-book via their website.

Drop-offs & Pick-ups: There will be no pick-ups or drop-offs along Village Way, or at Woollard Way (entrance to the Bridge car park), and supporters are advised to use our official drop-off and pick-up point located at University of Sussex, where our drop-off point is in Car Park 5, located by the Sports Hall.

Club Superstore

Tomorrow’s match is our last home game before the FA Cup semi-final, so allow some additional time to come and see our range of Wembley merchandise in the superstore before or after the match. The store is open 9am until 6pm.

The two external retail outlets will also be open for this fixture. They are situated at the south-east approach T-junction, and north-west corner, stocking a range of souvenirs — but for your Wembley merchandise we recommend a visit to the Club Superstore.

1901 Club Lounge Dress Code

We would like to take this opportunity to remind members that the dress code for the 1901 Club is smart business attire for all guests, male and female.

Acceptable attire includes smart jeans, smart boots, clean trainers and canvas shoes. Please note that ripped jeans, shorts and flip-flops are not permitted. Hospitality guests dining in either restaurant will still be required to wear shoes; trainers will not be permitted in dining areas.

Men must wear a collared shirt or polo shirt. Football shirts, polo-neck and turtleneck sweaters are not acceptable.

Only guests aged under 14 may wear Brighton & Hove Albion replica shirts. Away team colours or shirts are not permitted under any circumstances. Please ensure your guests are aware of and adhere to the dress code as entry will not be permitted if they are not dressed accordingly.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to reseat 1901 Club members or their guests in general admission areas of the stadium if refused admission to the 1901 Club.

Prohibited Items

In light of recent high-profile incidents where a range of items – including capped water bottles – have been thrown on to the pitch at a number of matches around the country, we are reminding all Brighton & Hove Albion and visiting supporters that bottles with tops on them are prohibited at the Amex Stadium.

Our stewards will be strictly enforcing this policy, and bottle tops will also be removed from drinks sold inside the stadium.

The full list of prohibited items can be found here.
