Away Days: Brighton & Hove Albion

18 September 2014

Prepare For Saturday's Game

After back-to-back home games Blackpool are on the road again this weekend with one of the longest trips of the season.

The Seasiders claimed a crucial point in Brighton last season, and will be looking to avoid a seventh league defeat of the season on Saturday.

Here is a quick guide on getting to Brighton.

By car: Around 300 miles separate Bloomfield Road and the Falmers Stadium, and it takes the best part of five hours to travel between the two.

By train: From Blackpool North the best route to Brighton is to go from Preston to London Euston. From there supporters are advised to go via London Bridge, and then Brighton, to get to a local station called Falmer, which is a short walk from the stadium.

This season Brighton have set up a bar outside of their stadium with live music, which is suitable for pre-match drinking from 1PM.

Brighton's first season back in the The Championship in 2011 was marked with the opening of their new home, known at The Amex Stadium for sponsorship purposes.

The Seagulls' first ever competitive match at their new ground came against Doncaster Rovers, who were also the opponents for the last game played at their former home, The Goldstone Ground.

30,750 supports can pack into the stadium and it will be used for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Tickets go off-sale at 1pm at Bloomfield Road on Thursday, but supporters will be able to pay on the day at the stadium.

Tickets are priced as follows:
- £25 for Adults
- £20 for Over-65s
- £10 for Under-18s
- £5 for Under-10s

If looking to purchase on the day, supporters are advised to visit the the main ticket office in the north stand at Brighton 90 minutes before kick-off. Supporters can also pre-book over the telephone from 2pm on Friday by calling 0844 327 1901.

Please note: a £1.50 per ticket fee applies when purchasing from Brighton in person or over the telephone.
