BRIGHTON are offering fans the opportunity to secure their 2022/23 kits for FREE through a superb “Shirt Buy-Back initiative”.
The Seagulls are giving supporters the chance to swap any Brighton or Brighton Women’s shirt from the last decade for a voucher which will allow them to obtain the new kit for free.

The scheme begins on May 23 – the day after their final match of the season at home to West Ham – and ends on May 29.
All returned kits will be donated to KitAid – a charity which distributes shirts to children and adults in the world’s poorest countries.
The kit-recycling initiative, which will only be available to the first 250 fans on a first come first serve basis, has been created by American Express to celebrate 10 seasons of them sponsoring the club.
Albion confirmed that they are willing to accept “all wearable, official Adult and Junior shirts issued by Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. and Brighton & Hove Albion W.F.C. since the 2011/12 season – including all home, away, third and goalkeeper shirts”.
Beverly Sawyers, Senior Vice President at American Express, said: “It’s been a real privilege to support Brighton & Hove Albion over the past ten seasons, and a pleasure to watch the Club’s incredible fans enjoy what could be their most successful season yet.
“The support and passion of the fans is so important to the Club and we wanted to round off an historic season by giving back to them.
“We can’t wait to see them in the stands again next year, loud and proud in their new shirts.”
The gesture from the south coast side comes towards the end of a thoroughly successful season on the pitch.
Graham Potter’s men sit ninth in the Premier League table with just two matches remaining.
And last weekend they clinched a famous win at the Amex Stadium as they thrashed Manchester United 4-0 in front of a raucous home crowd.
Their final two matches of the season come away to Leeds and at home to West Ham.
They could still leapfrog Wolves into eighth place but will need to make up a three-point deficit and slightly inferior goal difference.
