Amex Stadium History
Brighton & Hove Albion has existed for over a century longer than the Amex Stadium and there is plenty of rich history in Brighton & Hove’s past.
Much of Brighton’s history is driven by fan power as they petitioned and supported the club and local authorities to get Brighton to the point they are today. In the late 90’s, fans ran a campaign to back plans for a new stadium and win over politicians. After much deliberation and consultation periods the fans were backed by the government and the site at Falmer was stated to be in the public interest and would bring many social and economic benefits to Brighton and the surrounding area.
Permission wasn’t granted until 2007 however and funding was an issue. A wealthy fan named Tony Bloom provided £100m towards construction and £30 towards a training complex at nearby Lancing.
Brighton played their first game at the Amex Stadium in the Championship against Doncaster Rovers. Triumphing 2-1 on 6th August 2011.
The stadium was expanded to fit 30,750 seats in 2013 and has been regularly updated now Brighton have become a regular fixture in the Premier League and currently has a capacity of 31,876.
