Brighton and Hove Albion's new Amex stadium has won an international award for the best new venue.
The Seagulls' home beat seven other stadiums around the world to win the New Venue Award at the Stadium Business Awards in Turin, Italy.
The football club moved into the £93m stadium at Falmer last July.
Director Martin Perry said: "We were up against some very strong opposition, so to win this award is a remarkable achievement."
The stadium currently has a capacity of 22,500 seats, and recently won planning approval to increase the seating by an extra 8,250 seats.
