Brighton & Hove Albion on the edge of oblivion
It's hard to imagine now, but only 20 years ago the Seagulls were nearly relegated from the entire English football league. That's right, when fans of Brighton & Hove Albion and Hereford FC woke up on the morning of 3 May 1997, they knew that by dinnertime one of them would no longer be in the football league. This had been an especially difficult season for Brighton, with debts spiralling out of control the club were considering selling their stadium, the Goldstone Ground, to raise some urgently needed cash. Brighton only needed a draw, but after 21 minutes they were 1-0 down and footballing oblivion beckoned. However, now club legend, Robbie Renelt scored a crucial equaliser in the 62nd minute. Cue euphoria for Brighton & Hove Albion, heartbreak for Hereford FC. The rest, as they say, is history.
What does the new Premier League season have in store for Brighton & Hove Albion?
Like most recently promoted teams, the Seagull's main objective will undoubtedly be survival. However, after Leicester City's amazing title win in 2016, smaller clubs are starting to dream big. More likely is that Brighton will try and build slowly, carefully putting pieces into place to ensure success in the future. This may mean that their first season in the Premier League will be a difficult one, but you never know. So, make sure you don't miss out the chance to watch Brighton & Hove Albion play live in the England's top flight. Get those Brighton tickets today at StubHub.
