Search Is On For Sussex-Based Community Heroes To Be Honoured @ Brighton's Amex Stadium

To celebrate ten years of the American Express Community Stadium, American Express and Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club are launching a search for ten Sussex-based Community Heroes to be honoured at the stadium. 

Nominations are now open and will close on Sunday 19th September, offering a chance for people to put forward someone who they feel has made a significant contribution to the local Sussex community over the past decade. 

It could be a local schoolteacher who goes above and beyond to help their students succeed, someone who volunteers to support local people with a disability, a neighbour who delivers food to the elderly or a small business owner working tirelessly to serve the local area.
In addition to having their name honoured on a seat within the Amex Lounge at the stadium, each Community Hero will each receive two VIP hospitality tickets to watch Brighton & Hove Albion vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday 6th November from the Amex Lounge at the American Express Community Stadium.

Beverly Sawyers, Vice President at American Express said: 

"The vision was that the Amex would be a venue designed for the use and enjoyment of football fans and the wider Sussex community, which is why the stadium was named the American Express Community Stadium. 

"Alongside Brighton & Hove Albion and Albion In The Community, we're delighted to serve the local Sussex community by honouring these deserving individuals within the stadium as a fitting tribute for their incredible community work."
American Express will be looking for nominations of people who are: 
A Community Hero who has made a significant contribution to people or places within the Brighton and Sussex area, at any time over the past 10 years; and

A current resident of the Brighton and Sussex area
The Community Heroes will be chosen by a panel of judges with representatives from Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club, American Express and More Radio.

To enter a nomination for a Community Hero, please visit the More Radio page here. Nominations close on 19 September, 2021. Terms and conditions APPLY HERE.
