The Amex Community Stadium, Brighton

Project Details

The widely acclaimed and multi-award winning Amex Community Stadium for Brighton & Hove Albion FC was completed in time for the 2011-12 season. The stadium proved so popular with the Club’s fanbase that a further 8,000 seats were incorporated into the established envelope the following season to meet demand, taking the headline capacity up to 30,500.

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
