BHAFC Community Heroes
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the American Express Community Stadium, American Express and Brighton & Hove Albion, in association with More Radio, have been looking to find ten individuals deemed to have made a significant contribution to the local community over the last 10 years.
Nominations closed on September 19th and we can now reveal who these ten Community Heroes are. They all have their name honoured on a seat in the Amex Lounge at the stadium, plus they are invited to the Amex Lounge for Brighton’s Premier League game against Newcastle on Saturday 6th November where they will receive a VIP hospitality package for the day.
