General information

Falmer Stadium, known for sponsorship purposes as the American Express Community Stadium, or colloquially as the Amex, is a football stadium in the village of Falmer, in the City of Brighton and Hove, Sussex, that serves as the home of Brighton & Hove Albion F.C.. The stadium was handed over from the developers to the club on 31 May 2011. The first competitive game played at the stadium was the 2010–11 season final of the Sussex Senior Cup between Brighton and Eastbourne Borough on 16 July 2011. The first ever league game was against Doncaster Rovers, who were also the opponents in the last ever game played at Brighton’s former stadium, the Goldstone Ground, 14 years earlier.

Falmer Stadium hosted Premier League football for the first time in August 2017, following Albion’s promotion at the end of the 2016–17 season.

The stadium was designed to allow hosting for other sports and events. It hosted some matches from the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
