History and description

The stadium is located on the south coast of England, near Brighton and Hove, and has a capacity of 27,000. The Amex Stadium officially opened on July 30th 2011 with a friendly match between Brighton & Tottenham Hotspur. The stadium is located in the south coast of England near Brighton and Hove. It has a capacity of 27,000 people. Brighton had been planning to construct a new stadium as early as 1995 after former chairman Bill Archer had sold their Goldstone Ground to property developers.

When Brighton became homeless, they first ground-shared with Gillingham for two seasons, and then moved to the Withdean Stadium, an athletics stadium in Brighton that lacked the modern facilities for League football.

In 2007, Brighton had to go through various legal challenges to get planning permission for the club. Building works subsequently began in 2008, and in 2010 the club confirmed a naming rights sponsorship deal with American Express.

The American Express was designed to allow for an easy capacity increase to 30,000 seats, and already in December 2011 the club started planning for expansion.

Brighton Planning Permission was received in early 2012 and additional 5,000 seats were added before the start of the 2012-13 Season by creating a Second Tier on the East Stand and closing the corners of the South Sand. Additional 3,000 seats were added in early 2013 to bring Capacity to 30,500 Seats which was again increased to 31,800 in 2021 following some small adjustments.

Getting there and back from Brighton Station is free though don't be in a rush after the game. The locals are generally friendly, so it's the experience we should expect from going to away matches.

The home fans were not very vocal and lacked backbone, much like their team on the pitch. Notwithstanding, it was a pleasant day in Brighton and a whole new experience compared to other games I?ve been to in the UK.

Fans at the game in Brighton today were not very enthusiastic. It was a nice day and a new experience to be in Brighton, but compared to other games I have been to in the UK, this one was lackluster.

I tried to go to the stadium on midweek but they didn't seem too regular on Saturdays. The stadium itself is fine - a reasonable atmosphere and decent facilities in the away end.

Despite the queues and long wait times, coming back to Falmer station was even worse. The queues stretched far in both directions and trains were running at intervals of 15 minutes. This was midweek, so maybe things would be more regular on a Saturday afternoon. The stadium itself is fine - there is an adequate atmosphere and decent facilities in the away end.

Thank you Brighton Football Club and staff for a memorable afternoon. Although 3 points would have been a bonus, I enjoyed it all and thank you for the nice padded seating.

There was no signage indicating where to return to the car park, and then ensuing chaos ensued. People waited in their cars for over an hour to exit the stadium due to a traffic jam. Who allowed a stadium to be built without also creating the infrastructure to move the crowds? And who planned a concert without checking on this poor infrastructure? Thankfully, the weather was gracious.

There was no signage directing people to the car park, and as a result, there was a long wait to exit the stadium due to a jam. The stadium was built without proper infrastructure to move the crowds, and organizers were not aware of this issue. This event would have been much more difficult to organize if it weren?t for the good weather.
