Brighton & Hove Albion, based in Sussex, were founded in 1901 and won promotion to the Premier League for the first time this season after finishing runners-up in the 2016/17 Championship campaign.
Before then, the Seagulls and its die-hard fans had experienced many ups and downs throughout the years, most notably between 1997-2011 when the club went through a long battle with the local authorities in order to get their current AMEX Stadium built in Falmer.
During those years – having had their original Goldstone ground sold by the club’s board at the time – Albion had to play for two years at Gillingham’s Priestfield Stadium before moving to what should have been a temporary home at the Withdean in 1999.
Twelve-long years later and the club finally had its new home, which opened its doors to Championship football after the club lifted the League One title a few months before.
Other notable achievements for the club include reaching the 1983 FA Cup final when they were defeated in a replay by the mighty Manchester United, two additional third tier championships in 1958 and 2002, plus two fourth tier titles in 1965 and 2001.
Now managed by Chris Hughton, the club’s goal in the 2017/18 campaign is to stay in the country’s top division, where they last played in 1983 – when it was known as the First Division.
Skint Records – acquired by BMG in 2014 and based in Brighton – is a dance music record label owned with a roster of talented artists including, Dave Clarke, Fatboy Slim, Jacob Plant, X-Press 2 and more.
