Brighton and Hove Albion have vowed to learn from the financial impact of coronavirus on football.

A recent report from financial services organisation Deloitte claims that Premier League clubs could lose a combined £500m between them in the wake of Covid-19.

This astronomical figure is largely due to the lack of matchday and broadcast revenue from the Premier League season being suspended.

The Seagulls were projected to make a loss this season, but Brighton CEO Paul Barber says the predicted figures could increase as much as 60% due to current circumstances.

Barber said:

“I don’t think anybody could’ve foreseen this.

“We need to learn how we can do things better and what we can do to make ourselves resilient in future.

“These are not going to be answers that come overnight.”

Brighton are currently ensuring the Amex Stadium is bio-secure for the resumption of the Premier League campaign.
