The Lionesses play New Zealand at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

Ahead of tomorrow’s England v New Zealand international, we wish to communicate several important pieces of information to supporters who are attending the match.

With over 20,000 tickets sold for the match, all supporters are asked to head to the stadium as early as possible regardless of how they are travelling.

The club is advising fans that the usual matchday travel scheme will not be in operation for this game, so anyone traveling by bus or train must purchase a ticket to travel from the relevant operator.

There is no local street parking available for football supporters, as all areas close to the Amex have a residents’ parking scheme in operation, and enforcement officers will be on patrol.

Please note that all near-site parking, The Bridge (Car Park B) and Sussex University (Car Park C), has now completely sold out. Therefore, we advise supporters to use the park and ride facility at Brighton Racecourse (BN2 9XZ).


The service will operate from 10am onwards, and is available for supporters to pre-purchase at £5 per vehicle.

The club also wish to remind all supporters attending the match that bottles with tops on them are prohibited at the Amex Stadium.

This is in place to ensure spectator safety as well as that of players, staff and match officials and we appreciate that the vast majority of fans will be happy to oblige with the stadium rules and regulations.

For fans bringing their own water into the Amex, we would permit clear plastic bottles with a capacity of less than 500ml, subject to the removal and disposal of bottle tops prior to entry. Our stewards will be strictly enforcing this policy, and bottle tops will also be removed from drinks sold inside the stadium.

Finally, we also want to make supporters who are attending aware that stadium rules also prohibit flasks being brought into the Amex, along with the concealment of bottle tops for use later.

The full list of prohibited items can be found here.
