Opening in 2011, The American Express Community Stadium (AMEX) is located at Falmer on the outskirts of Brighton.

The first competitive game played at the stadium was the Sussex Senior Challenge Cup Final between Brighton and Eastbourne Borough in July 2011.

With a capacity of 31,800 Falmer Stadium was designed to allow for hosting other sports and events, playing host to matches during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. This summer it will one of the venues used as England hosts the 2022 UEFA Women’s European Championships.

Travel

By Road

If driving, at the end of the M23, continue onto the A23, heading towards Brighton. At the roundabout which is the junction with the A27, take the A27 towards Lewes. After around four miles you will see the stadium on your right hand side. Leave at the A27 and take the slip road sign posted Falmer (B2123).

At the top of the slip road turn right crossing back over the A27 and the entrance to the stadium is down on the right.

By Train

The quickest and easiest way to get to the stadium is by train, situated right by the stadium the nearest station is Falmer, three stops from Brighton central station on the line to Lewes and Seaford.

Usually there are four trains an hour in either direction, we would advise leaving plenty of time to make the 7:15pm kick off. You can see all the latest train times and plan your journey via www.nationalrail.co.uk.

Away Pubs

If you are travelling to Falmer by train, then eating and drinking in either Lewes or Brighton are probably your best options given how quick and easy the journey from both to the stadium is.

Brighton has hundreds of brilliant pubs, The Grand Central, The Railway Bell and the Queens Head are all immediately outside the station but just a two minute walk away are popular venues such as the Battle of Trafalgar, the Lord Nelson, the Albert, the Duke of Wellington and the Caxton Arms.
