American Express Community Stadium

Introduction

A new stadium (the American Express Community Stadium) for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club has been built at Falmer on a site next to the University of Brighton.

The University of Sussex is most directly concerned with arrangements for managing transport, not least because specific campus car parks are made available for parking on match days.

The infrastructure for the new stadium includes a new campus access road along the southern edge of Stanmer Park, giving University staff and students an additional exit.

The University has also maintained a strong interest in detailed planning for and construction on the site itself, which is close to the Stanmer Court residence for Sussex students.

So senior managers at Sussex have been working closely with the key players: the football club, Brighton & Hove City Council and the University of Brighton.
