“Such a stunning place to watch football...”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

...even if it's a really poor game, it's a great place to be. The atmosphere is good and the views of the South Downs from the West Stand Upper add an unusual contrast.

It also makes a FANTASTIC music venue, as proved by the Fatboy Slim gigs last summer. Having the stage at the side rather than on an end meant you were always close to the action.

“Amex-home of the Seagulls football team”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

This is a great football experience-the trip to the ground was by Park and Ride-there are 3 sites which can be used-or train or bus to travel to the ground. The entrance is down some steep steps from the bus but from the train it is easier for wheelchair users.
There are food and drink facilities inside the Stadium and although I have no personal experience it seemed very well used and queques doer drinks and pies before and half time were quite long but seemed to be served very quickly as there is an outlet at most gate entrances.
Our seat was comfortable and dry and the view was good of the pitch . It was a huge crowd and almost at capacity but everything moved quickly and without any crush. Most impressive stadium and very modern,

“Superb Venue”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Being a Season Ticket Holder, I may be a little biased. But a lot of thought and creativity has gone into the magnificent stadium.

From the matchday experience, where the sound of football songs is incredible, concourses are spacious and the chpice we have from items to purchase is great.

Would encourage anyone who hasnt been to go and experience a match.

“Superb visit”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

The biggest thing about Brighton is the friendliness of the Brighton fans! My team won yesterday and afterwards we went for a drink in one of the home stands and everyone was most welcoming! Will visit again
