Sussex Senior Challenge Cup Final
Date: Tuesday 7 May 2019
Venue: American Express Community Stadium, Village Way, Brighton, BN1 9BL
For the fourth consecutive year the final of this prestigious competition will be staged under the lights at the Amex.
Bognor Regis Town will face Burgess Hill Town in this season’s showpiece final. The Rocks have a rich history in the competition having last won it in 1987 and reached the final as recently as the 2014 season. The Hillians on the other-hand haven’t reached the final since 1998 and last won it back in 1886.
Ken Benham, Chief Executive of the Sussex County FA said: “We’re delighted to be able to hold the final of the Sussex Senior Challenge Cup at the Amex Stadium again this season.
“Like the last few years the final will be held on a mid-week evening, which is normal for the competition with games in previous rounds taking place then, so it’s not altogether different for Sussex football fans.
“An evening match at the Amex is always a special atmosphere, couple that with the fact it is a cup final between two well-established and well-supported non-league Sussex sides, it should be a fantastic night and we are very much looking forward to it!
“Our thanks go to Brighton & Hove Albion for use of their brilliant stadium to host the final.”
Ticket information for the final will be announced in due course.
