General

Brighton & Hove Albion, officially known as Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club and also known as The Seagulls, is an English football club based in Brighton and Hove. The club has played in the Premier League, the top division of English football, since the 2017/18 season. The club's best-known former player is Mark Lawrenson, who later joined Liverpool for a record fee. In 1983, the team reached the final of the FA Cup, which was lost to Manchester United in a replay (2-2 aet and 4-0 reps). From 1979 to 1983 the team played in the then first-class Football League First Division. They also won the FA Community Shield against Aston Villa in 1910 as Southern League champions.


Until a few years ago, the Goldstone Ground in the district of Hove was the club's home stadium. The best-attended game was on December 27, 1958 against Fulham FC, with 36,747 spectators in attendance. After a long period of trying to build a new stadium, the club played their home games at Withdean Stadium, one of the last stadiums in English professional football to have a running track. Withdean Stadium is located in the Withdean district of Brighton, just north of the city centre. 

The team plays in blue and white striped jerseys. In the 2005–06 season, Brighton finished bottom in the Football League Championship and were therefore relegated to Football League One. Most recently, the Seagulls finished seventh in the 2007/08 season, narrowly missing out on the relegation games for promotion. In the League Cup, the team surprisingly defeated Manchester City on penalties 5:3.


Promotion to England's second-tier professional football league, the Football League Championship, was sealed by a 4-3 home win against Dagenham & Redbridge five league games before the end of the season on 12 April 2011 under the guidance of Gustavo Poyet. After a good tenth place in the 2011/12 season, Brighton & Hove Albion was able to reach fourth place in the following season and thus qualify for the Premier League promotion games. Unfortunately, they failed in both attempts in the 2012/13 and 2013/14 seasons. However, on April 17, 2017, for the first time in the club's history, the team was able to seal promotion to the Premier League with a 2-1 win against Wigan Athletic.
