21 December 2013

A year since our first trip to Falmer (aka Amex) Community Stadium in the hills north of Brighton, we returned to the still-new building for a cross-country Championship League match-up with Yorkshire’s Huddersfield Town Football Club. It was great to see that since our last visit, all the seating sections have now been installed bringing the overall capacity of the Amex to 30,750.  The additional seating and incredible momentum Brighton has built, despite missing out on promotion to the Premiership in 2013, have given the club the highest average attendance in the League, at over 26,000 per match. With the perfect weather for Christmas-time football – mild with a stiff wind and misty rain – and our Canon G12 in tow, here’s what we saw from our goal line seats.
