Brighton is widely regarded as a vibrant, cultural hot spot, where some form of entertainment is never far away. Brighton and Hove Albion football club have upheld this reputation.
The club have made themselves right at home in the league, and have now got a top 4 spot to boast of. Sadly, this top 4 finish won’t get them Champions League football, but it is still a major credit to the club.
Albion came in at third in Visit Football’s match day experience assessment. They received heavy praise for their accessibility for disabled supporters. The buoyant, yet inclusive atmosphere at the Amex also aided their placement.
The Premier League newbies only came behind giants Liverpool and Manchester City. This follows their first place ranking in the Premier League Matchday Fan Experience survey.
Albion’s chief executive Paul Barber has expressed great pride in the clubs achievements: “This is another wonderful achievement for our club, and is testament to the huge amount of work that goes on to ensure we provide the best possible experience for all fans attending our stadium.”
Barber also thanked the staff and spoke of the need to maintain these standards: “I would like to reiterate my thanks to every single member of staff for their continued hard work and professionalism. We will need to maintain these excellent standards again next season, as we aim to provide Chris and his coaching staff the best-possible support.”
Let’s hope that Albion can finish in the actual top 4 next season. Hey, I can dream!
