Albion’s home game against Crystal Palace has been postponed due to planned rail network strikes.

There is no new date for the Premier League game, which should have been played for a week on Saturday.

Fans should keep their tickets pending further details.

Albion chief executive Paul Barber said: “Both clubs wanted the game to go ahead on the original date and continued dialogue has been held to achieve this with all relevant authorities including Sussex and Surrey Police, other local emergency services and agencies , Brighton & Hove City Council, the Premier League and Crystal Palace.

“Following these discussions and careful assessment of all factors, the unanimous recommendation from the Safety Advisory Group was that the game be rescheduled, with the full support of the Premier League.

“While we fully appreciate that this will be a huge disappointment for both sets of fans and will disrupt both teams’ fixtures and the fans, the safety of both clubs’ fans, our matchday staff, players and officials must be safe The priority.

“We considered how difficult it would be for fans of both clubs to attend the game without access to the rail network and we looked at a number of options and various contingency plans.

“This involved additional travel opportunities or the game being rescheduled to earlier or later in the same week, with the international break allowing the game to be played no later than Sunday afternoon this weekend, but it just wasn’t possible to play the game with a full occupied audience present.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused fans of both teams, but we feel the right decision was made. We would also like to thank Crystal Palace, the Premier League and the authorities for their support on this matter.”
