Brighton will host 2,500 fans at the pre-season friendly against Chelsea

Brighton will be the first Premier League club to host fans since last March. 

The government approved with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport a series of test events to bring spectators back to elite sport.

There will be 2,500 tickets made available to season ticket holders and club members based on loyalty points fans have acquired. Brighton has confirmed no tickets will be made available to Chelsea as they will not be admitting away fans. 

Brighton Chief Executive Paul Barber has said it’s a “first small step to a return to normality” when he spoke to the press this week. He continued to say, “It’s a big opportunity to demonstrate to the government and public that we can stage an event safely”.

The Amex stadium will abide by all social distancing rules and fans will be separated, wearing masks and even if families have bought tickets together, they will still sit apart. Brighton has also changed the ticketing system to electronic so all fans will receive their ticket through their phone and the club are also asking for all fans to arrive by car as there are adequate parking facilities at the stadium.
