Brighton & Hove Albion: Club Profile
Our first ‘competitive’ meeting with The Seagulls came thanks to the 2016-7 Checkatrade Trophy group stage; if you count taking on a U23 side as ‘competitive’. Eager to do our bit to assist the future of our glorious nation (or whatever the mandate for the tournament), however, we did it all over again the season after too.

Travel Information – Distance: 102 miles
Unless you want to go through the centre of London, you'll have to take the M25 for almost half its circumference to get to Brighton. And anti-clockwise is your best bet, so cross your fingers that traffic around the M40, M4 and M3 interchanges is on best behaviour. And allow extra time, etc...
When you get to Junction 7, leave the M25 and take the southbound M23. Keep on going when the motorway comes to an end after 14 miles and head onto the A23 for another 16 miles. At the junction with the A27, follow the road around to the left and join the eastbound carriageway towards Lewes/Newhaven.
It's just three miles down the road before you're called into action again with the B2123 exit. Come off the A27 here and take the third exit at the end of the ramp towards Falmer. Go across another roundabout and turn right onto Village Way for the stadium.
We're told that there are three Park and Ride locations that might be of use - and the postcodes are BN1 8ZF, BN2 9XZ and BN2 4AT if you have a sat-nav. However, the first of these is located near the A3/A27 junction. And if you were wondering, there's no away fans parking at the stadium itself.
Services to: BRIGHTON (for LONDON ST PANCRAS)
The nearest station to the ground is Falmer, which is literally outside the stadium. If you're not fancying that additional connection from Brighton, you're out of luck as Brighton's main station is five miles away and not walkable unless you have a spare hour-and-a-half.
