Brighton and Hove Albion set to leave the Amex and build an 80,000 seater stadium in Lancing

Posted On 01 Apr 2019 at 12:01 am

Brighton and Hove Albion is planning to move to a huge all seater stadium in Lancing.

The venue is mooted to be named The Ikea Stadium and will become one of the biggest of its kind in the English Premier League.

The club are likely to be renamed Brighton, Hove and Lancing Wanderers.

Locals have said its the most exciting thing to happen in Lancing, since the new Co-op opened.

The site of the current Amex Stadium in Falmer will become a vegan market and drop-in centre.

50% of Brighton residents now tell other people that they are vegan.

A club spokesman told Brighton and Hove News: “This is an exciting development. We plan to have an all weather cover known as the Pilla Roof.”

“The club will hold a full press conference at around 11:55 am today – anyone turning up after midday won’t be allowed in.”

UPDATE: There’s no fooling you lot is there? Happy April Fool’s Day to all who rumbled and enjoyed this year’s prank.

    You forgot to mention The 2 Unis were to become Butlins and Pontins Holiday Camps as they fit the criteria for fun packed days.

      This was stolen from the Argus… Makes me wonder if this site is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

        Er, no it wasn’t. The Argus regularly steal stories from this site like last year’s hilarious spoof about the old railway line to Kemp Town being reopened, meaning Sainsbury’s at the Vogue Gyratory being demolished. They’re blatant

    Can’t imagine too many people in Brighton fell for this one. April Fool’s jokes have become so common online that most people are very leery with the news on April Fool’s Day. Fake news! LOL. Wouldn’t that be funny though to see a huge stadium in Lancing. It reminds me of “Sim City” and bad zoning.
