Match Preview

We finish off our Premier League campaign on Sunday with the visit of West Ham, kick-off 4pm. Read team news here.

Mark Noble Presentation

To celebrate Mark Noble’s fantastic career and his final game for West Ham, we are having an on-pitch presentation for the midfielder at approximately 3.10pm.

Pitch incursion: it’s not worth it!

Fans are reminded ahead of the final match of the season that pitch incursion remains a criminal offence and just isn't worth it.

Following a spate of unsavoury high incidents this week, we are urging supporters to stay in the stands at the end of the game, and not to ruin their own season with a criminal record and lengthy club ban.

Anyone thinking of such actions, should be aware that with the assistance of the club, Sussex Police has successfully prosecuted or is in the process of prosecuting all individuals who've come onto the pitch at the Amex this season.

Family Stand

DISCOBUG will be joining us in the Fan Zone this weekend, alongside an ice cream van available outside the memorial garden pre- and post-match.

Do-it-yourself face paints and handheld flags will also be handed out to our junior supporters.

Our matchday selfie station will still be located opposite the North Stand reception.

Celebrate with us post-match

As a thank you for the fantastic support of our fans, we’re excited to announce post-match party in the East Stand after the end of Sunday’s match.

A DJ will be spinning some tunes after the players’ lap of appreciation until about 8pm.  Home fans will be allowed to move freely to the lower East Stand to enjoy the experience.

Bars and food outlets will be open to cater for everyone’s post-match snacks and drinks.

We look forward to celebrating an incredible Premier League season with you!

 Mobile digital ticketing at the Amex

Please don’t forget to charge your phone before you leave for the Amex and download your tickets to your phone's wallet.

Have your pass ready before you get to the turnstiles.

  • Please do not travel if you have COVID-19 symptoms
  • Wear a face covering when indoors or in crowded areas
