Brighton & Hove Albion have secured the brand-new Boxpark on Olympic Way as the club’s matchday headquarters for FA Cup semi-final Saturday.
The 2000-plus capacity, state-of-the-art entertainment venue has more than 20 different street food kiosks, three massive bars, a giant video screen, music, and a range of dining and VIP options.
Club chief executive Paul Barber explained, “Boxpark will become the club’s HQ on the day, opening from 11am until 11pm, with directors, staff, sponsors, and guests being joined by club legends. We’re delighted to also make a limited number of tickets available for our fans to purchase so that they can also enjoy being part of our club’s HQ for the day.
“Seagulls TV presenter Richie Reynolds will host the event, with live Q&As with club chairman Tony Bloom, ambassadors Alan Mullery and Steve Sidwell, and a number of other Albion legends including Guy Butters, Andy Rollings and Gordon Smith.
“There’ll also be music and DJs in the build up to the game, access for the broadcast and print media, and the chance to win spot prizes with some fun and games throughout the build up. Afterwards, fans with tickets will be able to join us - win or lose - but hopefully to celebrate an historic FA Cup upset!”.
Full details on how to purchase tickets for Boxpark’s Albion HQ will be made available in due course. We do expect this to sell out very quickly, and tickets will be available for fans to purchase for pre or post match, or both, and will be sold subject to loyalty point order and availability, from next Wednesday – one ticket/pass per season ticket holder with a match ticket for the semi-final.
