New 30,000 seater stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion FC

The widely acclaimed Amex Community Stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion FC was completed in time for the 2011-12 season, and proved so popular with the Club’s fan base that a further 8,000 seats were incorporated within the established envelope to meet increased demand.

The site in Falmer lies next to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the South Downs, and this in turn inspired the sweeping architectural form of the stadium. The stands nestle into the landscape, and the curved roof structure and cladding evoke the forms of the rolling hill backdrop.

“This will be a genuine community stadium, and first and foremost, a real and spiritual home for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.” Martin Perry, Chief Executive, BHAFC
