New stadium effect

If a football team ever needed a new ground, it's Brighton and Hove Albion. Brighton were homeless after its owners sold the Goldstone Ground in 1997. Until 2011, the club played at the woefully inadequate Withdean Stadium, complete with temporary stands and a running track around the pitch.

In 2011, Albion moved onto the shiny new 30,000 capacity Amex Stadium which saw an incredible upturn in fortunes both on and off the pitch. Off the pitch, attendances soared 313% from 6,462 to 26,700 - that's the second biggest percentage increase on our list. Most importantly, Albion improved dramatically on the pitch from an average of 50th (6th League One) to 23rd (3rd in the Championship) - the last 4 years of which were spent in the Premier League.

Brighton's move to the Amex is a shining example of how a sleeping giant can be woken with a new stadium.
