ALBION fans are being offered the chance to swap their old tops for a brand new one for next season.

The kit-recycling initiative allows for 250 fans to exchange any Albion shirt from the past 10 years to “give their old shirts a new home”.

The initiative, organised by club sponsor American Express, starts from May 23 until May 29 with fans able to visit the club superstore at the Amex where they can donate their shirt in return for a voucher.

All returned shirts will be donated to the charity KitAid, which distributes shirts to people in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Beverly Sawyers, senior vice president at American Express, said: “It’s been a real privilege to support Brighton and 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 a 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.”

American Express will accept all wearable, official adult and junior shirts issued by the men’s and women’s teams since the 2011/12 season - including all home, away, third and goalkeeper shirts.

Fans will need to be quick if they would like to nab one of the 250 available vouchers, as they will be issued on a first-come first-served basis, limited to one per person.

The initiative starts the day after the conclusion of Albion’s Premier League season, after the game against West Ham. People can hand in shirts on Monday, May 23.

It has been a season to remember for Graham Potter’s side, who have already secured their highest ever points total in the Premier League and highest ever finish of at least 14th in the table.
