Brighton FC was Founded in 1901, and nicknamed as the "Seagulls" or "Albion", Brighton played their early professional football in the Southern League, before being elected to the Football League in 1920. Prior to the current, continuing stint in the Premier League, the club enjoyed its greatest prominence between 1979 and 1983 when it played in the First Division and reached the 1983 FA Cup Final, losing to Manchester United after a replay game. Brighton FC was relegated from the First Division in the same season. For 95 years Brighton FC were based at the Goldstone Ground in Hove until the board of directors decided to sell the stadium. The sale, executed by majority shareholder Bill Archer and his chief executive David Bellotti, proved controversial, and the move arouse widespread protests against the board. For 2 years, from 1997-99, the club shared Priestfield Stadium, the ground of Gillingham, before returning to Brighton to play at Withdean Stadium. This is not primarily a football ground, having been used for athletics throughout most of its history, and previously as a zoo. By the end of the 1990s, Brighton were in the fourth tier of English football and struggling financially. After narrowly avoiding relegation from the Football League to the Conference in 1997, a boardroom takeover saved Brighton FC from liquidation. Successive promotions in 2001 and 2002 brought Brighton back into the second tier and in 2011 the club moved to Falmer Stadium after 14 years without a permanent ground. In the 2016-17 season, Brighton finished as runners-up in the EFL Championship and were promoted to the Premier League, ending a 34-year absence from the top flight.

Falmer Stadium (now known for sponsorship reasons as the American Express Community Stadium, Amex Stadium) is a stadium in Village Way, Brighton BN1 9BL. On 28 October 2005, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister announced that the application for Falmer had been successful, to the delight and relief of all fans. Lewes District Council challenged John Prescott's decision to approve planning permission for Falmer and forced a judicial review. This was based on a minor error in Prescott's original approval, which failed to state that some of the parking for the stadium was in the Lewes district as opposed to the Brighton & Hove authority. This causes further delay. When the judicial review ruled in favor of the stadium, Lewes District Council said it would not lodge a further appeal. Construction of Falmer Stadium began in December 2008. On 31 May 2011, the club officially completed the handover and received the keys to the stadium with an initial capacity of 22,374, ending 14 years without a stadium In January 2012, the club submitted an application to Brighton and Hove City Council to increase capacity stadium by an additional 8,000 seats as well as the addition of additional corporate boxes, new television equipment and a luxury suite. On 25 April 2012 it was granted by Brighton & Hove City Council's planning committee. The stadium was then expanded to 27,250 at the start of the 2012-13 season and then to 27,750 in December 2012 before reaching 30,750 in May 2013.
