Usually referred to as the A23 derby or the M23 derby, matches between Brighton and Crystal Palace make for a feisty rivalry which burst onto the scene in the late 1970s. The unusual nicknames of this derby come from motorway roads connecting Sussex with south London.
Brighton and Crystal Palace had been the founding members of the Football League Third Division but their rivalry did not truly arise to prominence before both sides fast-tracked their way into the First Division during the 70s. Matches between these two rivals would bring plenty of on-pitch excitement. Similarly, it would often turn into incident-filled encounters. Last of them occurred in December 2018 when a melee ensued over penalty disputes. Shane Duffy even threw a head butt on Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt leaving Brighton to record a compelling 3-1 win with only ten players on the pitch.
The year 1901 marks the birth of Brighton & Hove Albion. It wasn’t until 1920, however, that Brighton became a member of the Football League. The Seagulls are not among the most successful clubs in the country and the FA Cup final in 1983 – and a loss to Manchester United – to this date stands as arguably the most notable result in history. During their time, Brighton have changed the total of five different stadiums. They first played their home matches at County Cricket Ground during their formative year. The Goldstone Ground was Brighton’s home for five years, before the club moved to Priestfield Stadium. Withdean Stadium was the place Brighton spent 12 years at, before moving to their current home – Falmer Stadium.
Historically speaking, the club’s main colours are blue and white, with a striped combination being the most frequent occurrence on their shirt. The nickname – Seagulls – is only natural, knowing that this bird is the focal point of the club’s crest.
