The Amex Stadium - or to give it its full title, The American Express Community Stadium - was opened in 2011 to become the new home of Brighton & Hove Albion FC. The stadium has a capacity of just over 30,000, and as well as Brighton & Hove Albion home games, it was also a venue during the 2015 Rugby World Cup including for Japan's historic victory over South Africa.
Albion are extremely popular in the local community and sell out high-profile games, when they serve guest beers brewed in the visiting team's town. But it is normally possible to get tickets for most matches via the ticket office. Games and the stadium itself are divided into price categories, with the cheapest tickets for category C games starting at £25, rising to £42 for the most expensive tickets at a category A game.
It is also possible to visit the stadium for a tour, which takes place on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The tour takes 1 hour 45 minutes and includes the West stand and trophy room, the lounges and press areas, the changing rooms and dugouts, and the Brighton & Hove Albion museum. The stadium tour costs £13, with family and concessionary tickets available.
