Slightly nerdy question but it is for my 11 year old son. He was hoping for a few autographs. Do they drive in to the players/staff car park or are they coached in ? If anybody knows it would be really helpful. Thanks

Well they’re not going to queue up at Brighton station for the Southern Inter-Continental Bullet train, so you can rule that one out. :D

On a serious note hang around the players entrance probably around an hour and a half before kick off. Ask a steward or one of the support staff around the Amex for the best information. :thumbsup:

[MENTION=118]Hiney[/MENTION] is going to get us a monorail and the players will be on the first train for every home game. :moo:

Until that happens, OP, I am not sure of what time they arrive, but after the game (at least before Covid) the players come out of the West end of the North Stand (basically to the left of the club shop as you look from Falmer Station, near where the outside catering is) at the end. My son got selfies with Maupay, Biss, Webster and Mooy (oh well) after the Bournemouth home win December 2019. That exit takes them to the player's car park.

They may not be permitted to do that these days but I would suspect the almost total scrapping of Covid regulations means they might.

I reckon they'll be having a sleep over tonight. . . Probably snorting jelly and rolled their sleeping bags out already.

In the Gus Poyet years my eldest daughter used to serve the players their pre-match meal three hours before kick off.
You have not been charged for this useless information :moo:

An hour and a half? I’d give it at least 2 hours if not 3

When i took my son we were told the players had to be in the Team Room by 11:00 for a 3:00 kick off.
They had there prematch meal and talk in the East Stand before crossing to West Stand.
Appreciate later kick off tomorrow.
Also players family will be with them tomorrow for lap of honour making signatures aftee game more difficult
