Football heritage

The city is home to Brighton & Hove Albion FC. Founded in 1901, the club is currently enjoying its fourth consecutive season in the Premier League and play their home matches at the Brighton & Hove Community Stadium.

In addition to top-flight English men’s football, the 30,000+ stadium has also played host the England women’s team in 2019. It has also staged top-tier women’s league football on two occasions, with the first being in 2019 against Arsenal, where a then FA WSL record 5,265 supporters attended.

Local legacy

UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 will provide a springboard for the continued growth of women’s and girls’ football in England. In Brighton & Hove and across Sussex the legacy programme aims to:

  • Increase the percentage of schools engaging in the Girls’ Football School Partnerships across Sussex.
  • Increase the number of women and girls aged 15+ playing affiliated football and retain those already engaged in the game.
  • Create a sustainable and diverse workforce of female leaders, coaches, volunteers and referees from secondary schools, colleges and universities across Sussex.

All leading to:

  • 90% of primary and secondary school girls accessing girls’ football within – and beyond – the curriculum in Sussex through Girls’ Football School Partnerships by 2024.
  • 2,000 women and girls aged 15+ playing affiliated football.
  • Double the number of FA-qualified female coaches and referees to take the game forward across Sussex.
