Premier League City Guide – Brighton

Visit Britain are currently running a competition to find football’s biggest Super Fan, and football fans in Brighton are as loyal as they come.

A quaint seaside town, football has often played a big part in the lives of Brightonians – with a day on the beach not complete without a kick around.

Professionally, Brighton-based football clubs have not achieved too much success – with Brighton and Hove Albion, the highest placed club from the city, yet to breach into England’s top flight.

Indeed, there are a host of clubs throughout the city, though, with clubs like Lewes and Eastbourne often welcoming small but hugely passionate fans to their ground on a Saturday afternoon.

Brighton and Hove Albion are the club to watch, though, and with the side looking to embark on a huge period in their history, now is a very good time to be a passionate fan of the Seagulls…

Brighton & Hove Albion

It is a very interesting time to be a Brighton and Hove Albion fan. The club are currently sitting near the top of the Championship, which is the second division in the English tier system, and could be set to earn immediate promotion at the end of the season.

This will mark the first time that the club have competed in the Premier League, with the Chris Hughton-led side being the surprise package of the season so far.

They play their football at the American Express Community Stadium, or The AMEX, which is an impressive, modern stadia in the heart of the Sussex Downs.

Affectionately known as the Seagulls, fans of the club are loyal and dedicated to their team and city – and that has played a vital role in their rise over the last few years.
