WeAreBrighton.com - Amex Stadium

After over a decade of planning battles, the American Express Community Stadium was finally opened in July 2011, giving Brighton and Hove Albion a permanent home just the 14 years after the Goldstone Ground was sold to developers by an asset stripping owner.

The Amex has quickly gained a reputation as one of the best places in the country to watch football. Here is our guide to the stadium.

The Amex Stadium
Our guide to visiting the Amex Stadium, featuring on the history of the stadium and looking at the best places to sit. Even if it will set you back 65 (SIXTY FIVE POUNDS) for a plum seat in the middle of the West Stand for a Category A game with the big boys.
Transport
Driving straight to the stadium is a bit of a no-no with severely limited parking in and around the Falmer area and what there is is frankly charged at an obscene price. We take a look at the best ways to make your way to and from The Amex.
Eating and Drinking
Eating and drinking has become an integral part of a football match day experience now - especially the drinking side of things. With the Amex being an out-of-town stadium, here is our guide as to where you should head for refuelling.
Construction
Having waited for so long for the stadium to built, there was a keener than usual interest taken in it's construction. Between August 2009 and the opening in June 2011, we paid 15 visits to the site at Falmer documenting each stage of the building of the ground.
