Brighton & Hove Albion prepare for first ever live terrestrial TV league game

Posted On 13 Mar 2021 at 10:03 pm

The Seagulls take on Southampton at St Mary’s tomorrow (Sunday 14 March) in their first ever league match to be screened live on the BBC.

Albion’s first ever live match on terrestrial TV was the FA Cup final in 1983 which was screened on both BBC and ITV simultaneously.

It was followed by a game against Liverpool at the Goldstone a year later on ITV only.

Brighton did not appear live on ITV again until an FA Cup tie at home to Newcastle in 2013.

The club’s last live BBC appearance was the 2019 FA Cup semi-final at Wembley against Manchester City.

Regardless of the result tomorrow, the Seagulls will at least stay above the relegation zone after Fulham lost at home to Manchester City this evening.
