Brighton Supporters Set Amex Attendance and Consumption Records

September 18, 2012

Brighton and Hove Albion’s Friday night game was notable for setting new Amex attendance record as well a record consumption of food and drink.

Brighton supporters set a club record in terms of total consumption at a single game, smashing previous best and setting the record for the biggest-ever spend per head at any match at the Amex.

Supporters ate 12,000 pies and drank 14,000 pints of beer, and a pre-match meal deal contributed to the highest-ever burger sales at the stadium. Fans were also offered 15 percent off pies after the final whistle.

Chief Executive, Paul Barber, said: “We launched our new early-bird and post-match offers to encourage fans to arrive early and stay later, and these proved extremely popular.

“Fans will be pleased to hear that we will be continuing with these and will have different pre and post-match offers at future games.”

Barber was keen to praise the support from Albion’s fans.

“To have a record crowd, such a fantastic match and to go top of the table made it one of the most special nights yet at the Amex,” he said.

“The team was superb and thanks to the fans too, who played their part, as ever. They were in great spirit, good voice and impeccably behaved.”
