The countdown to kick-off begins here! Take a look at everything happening around The Amex this matchday.

Autographs and selfies

All players will not stop to sign or pose for selfies when arriving or leaving the stadium – as it is no longer safe to do so.

Instead, we will be offering a number of spaces for our junior season-ticket holders and MyAlbion+ junior members at every home matchday to come to the stadium early for enhanced selfie and autograph opportunities with the squad, in a safe environment as the players arrive.

Joining us in the fanzone this week is The Brighton School of Samba which is Brighton & Hove's original samba school, playing authentic batucada and Rio samba.

We also have some very fun activities for you to get involved in and test your football skills, including:

  • ICON Fast Feet – A solo game that involves quick feet, close control and great reaction times. See if you can rank on the leaderboard!
  • SubSoccer – A one v one seated football game to test your skills against friends & family.

Get your matchday selfie in the photobooth located in the East Lower Stand.
