Transport to Amex Stadium Brighton

Early transport problems have been somewhat ironed out. The stadium is close to the A27 Brighton by-pass, linking it northbound to the A23 and M23 motorway towards London and southbound to the A270 and the city centre. There is pre-paid car parking available for 2000 cars on the University of Sussex and the Falmer Academy sites. There are several park and ride services to the Amex stadium. One of these is at Mill Road situated at the A23/A27 intersection, which holds 500 cars. Another is at Brighton Racecourse, holding approx. 700 cars. The third car parking site is at Mithras House (Brighton University) on the Lewes Road, holding approx 300 cars.

The stadium is served by Falmer railway station which is a nine-minute journey from Brighton railway station and seven minutes from Lewes railway station, both of which are served by trains from London.

The ground is home to Brighton and Hove Albion - a second tier English football club. Many of it's fans are from the local area but whose first team is one of the bigger clubs such as Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool. As such their fans are often described as "plastics". Brighton's main rivals are premiership club Crystal Palace but such recent meetings as there have been have resulted in disappointment for the fans as they have had little success.
