American Express and Seagulls.

I was working at the American Express Community stadium recently, Falmer, Brighton. The Stadium, known as the American Express Community Stadium, or colloquially as the Amex, is the home of Brighton and Hove Albion FC (The Seagulls). It hosted Premier League football for the first time in August 2017, following Albion’s promotion at the end of the 2016-2017 season. It was however also it designed to allow hosting for other sports and events and hosted some matches from the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Took myself off for a sneaky little solo tour during the lunch break:

‘The Beautiful Game’

Football.

I think the best place to work in football is England.

From Premier League (Southampton, Brighton and Leicester City) to the Isthmian League Division One South (Lewes) down to East Midlands Counties League (Barrow Town) football unites our country and our sense of national identity.
