A new ticket system has been introduced at Brighton and Hove Albion's Amex stadium in an attempt to allow more supporters to see home games.

Season ticket holders will be allowed to sell their seats back to the club if they cannot attend a particular match.

These seats will then be resold to non-season ticket holders. Similar systems are used by some Premier League clubs.

The club has previously announced plans to add a further 8,250 seats to the 22,500 seat stadium.

Chief executive Paul Barber said demand for tickets had been very high and the club has sold out of season tickets.

"In the meantime we're very keen for as many fans as possible to see the games," he said.

"People are spending a fair amount of their money to come and watch us play.

"We feel the more value we can give them the better it is - for them, the club and the fans that want to get into games but can't."
