Capacity: 30,750 (all seated) Address: Village Way, Falmer, E Sussex, BN1 9BL Telephone: 03 Fax: 01273 878238 Ticket Office: 08 Pitch Size: 115 x 75 yards Pitch Type: Grass Club Nickname: The Seagulls Year Ground Opened: 2011 Undersoil Heating: Yes Shirt Sponsors: American Express Kit Manufacturer: Nike Home Kit: Blue and White Stripes Away Kit: Yellow and Green Third Kit: All Black After leaving the the Goldstone Ground 1997, which had been the Club's home since 1902, Brighton have struggled to find a new permanent home, first ground sharing at Gillingham for two seasons, before returning to the South Coast in 1999, to take up temporary residence at the Withdean Athletics Stadium.After a long drawn out battle, the Club finally prevailed receiving planning permission in July 2007 for a new stadium at Falmer, on the outskirts of Brighton.It is worth noting that the Club charge away fans more for sitting in the East Stand rather than the South Stand or South East corner.As you would expect from a new stadium, the view of the playing action and leg room are both good.The concourse is extraordinarily wide and spacious for such a small stadium.Comfy cushioned seats, excellent view, plenty of leg room, great pitch and the best acoustics of any stadium I've been to.But on closer inspection the similarity ends as this is a far superior ground, which inside is reminiscent of the KC Stadium in Hull. This three tiered stand, has a large lower tier, a small middle tier and a medium sized upper tier.
It is away fan friendly and only two a minute walk away from the station.
Also on offer are Cheeseburgers (£4.70), Burgers (£4.60) and Hot Dogs (£4.20).
Peter Llewellyn adds; ' The Amex Stadium is an excellent venue, very nicely set in the countryside.
Alcohol is served within the ground in the form of Harveys real ale (£4.30), Fosters (£4.20), White or Red Wine (£4.20).
Harveys have also produced a special ' Albion' bottles beer which is only available at the stadium or from the Harveys shop in Lewes.
