The biggest football team in Sussex is Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, and they will be playing their games in the top tier of the English League, the Premier League, next season.

The team is known as the Seagulls or Albion, and it will be a mammoth season for them in 2017-2018, as it will be the first time they will be playing games in the Premier League. With promotion to the top tier, the club will receive a massive injection of funds as a result of team sponsorship, as well as television coverage deals.

The increased pressure and scrutiny could be an opportunity for the club to update its internal software in terms of security through dedicated expert firms such as Holmsecurity.com which specialises in data protection, email security and more.

Over the years, there have been plenty of stories of leaks and hacks, which is why it is more important than ever for clubs to protect their databases and communications. The Seagulls play their home games at the Falmer Stadium, which is sponsored by American Express, and is consequently known colloquially as the Amex. The stadium is known for its lively atmosphere and can accommodate 30,750 spectators.

If you are visiting Sussex, then watching a game should definitely be on your to do list. But be warned, tickets will be hard to come by at the last minute, so it is advisable to book and pay in advance. You can do this online and pay for them by credit or debit card. Again, security comes into play here, and transactions are protected by encryption software that protects both the club and the person buying the tickets. Be sure to buy yourself a team scarf in blue and white, and if you are lucky, you might even get to watch the derby against Crystal Palace.
