I'm opening a chips shop next to Brighton's stadium. I need investors.


imgrandojjo t1_j8khcri wrote

Shop? Get a stand, park it right outside the stadium.


boricimo t1_j8ksdqq wrote

Stand? Just bring a grill into the Stadium and sell right in the stairs.


Led_Deplin t1_j8l1m1a wrote

Stairs? Stuff them in your clothes and sell them in the seats.


boricimo t1_j8l7wp3 wrote

Seats? Stuff them in your mouth and give directly into people’s mouths like a mama bird.


IdPreferToBeLurking t1_j8lckch wrote

Mouths? We've created designer bacteria that will form into a butty directly inside your stomach.


Not_as_witty_as_u t1_j8lfidq wrote

Stomachs? Photosynthesize those chips


Emerald34 t1_j8nsybu wrote

Photosynthesize? gain the powers of telekinesis and deliver the sensation of eating fish and chips to your customers


insultant_ t1_j8l5c4z wrote

Really? Why not but the stadium and convert it into a fish and chips emporium?


ArcherA87 t1_j8m8omm wrote

Because then you'll have to walk two hours to the nearest football match.

I mean there’s a van there on match days selling fish and chips but it’s not open outside of matchdays


si1versmith t1_j8lzj76 wrote

You could probably open it across the street next to the university.


Pentax25 t1_j8m90if wrote

Ironic since there’s a fish & chip shop basically everywhere in Brighton


Onemax1 t1_j8o0k9k wrote

Brightons stadium is in the middle of nowhere your only customers will be on match day. Your fish will need to be line caught and chips organic

Is this why Brighton fans supposedly are the healthiest?


estebancantbearsedno t1_j8k6kjk wrote

I don’t like being more than 15 minutes from a chip shop, but I live up north so that’s never a problem.


bwoah07_gp2 t1_j8lz3t3 wrote that's a question. "Which Premier League team's have the healthiest fans?"


jai_kasavin t1_j8m7b1n wrote

Blackburn Rovers. It's still 1995 in their heads, and you're only as old as you feel.


Pentax25 t1_j8m92yi wrote

I reckon there’s no fish & chips there cos they’re so sick of it round the rest of the town it probably wouldn’t sell so well


dyingsong t1_j8me1bf wrote

There's a fish and chip stand (or multiple) directly outside of the stadium. The graphic is wrong.

You can't get Fish and Chips at a Brighton game because of all the Seagulls

Seagulls are a tough team. Defense so good it’s like they’re flying out there.

I haven’t been to any European stadiums but can you guys really get out in 2 minutes? In the US takes like 20 minutes just to leave the stadium then 20 minutes of security to get back in.


jupiterspringsteen t1_j8k77wi wrote

Yes probably. There isn't much security at a football stadium here in Europe. Thinking about it, it's guns isn't it.


Lumpyyyyy t1_j8kalxx wrote

In the US, at least at the places I’ve been to, you can’t leave and go back in either. So this would be a small chart for that.


LolitsPing t1_j8lc2a5 wrote

That’s because of alcohol purchases.

A few years ago, you could go in and out of a college football game to drink a beer or two at your tailgate at halftime and return to your seat. Not the case since they started selling beer in the stadium.


Kered13 t1_j8m03r6 wrote

No, the main fear at stadiums is bombs. Well that, and people sneaking in without paying. I'm actually very surprised to hear that there isn't much security at European stadiums.


gbzcngb t1_j8m30ph wrote

It depends on the stadium as well, the Spurs stadium has almost airport style security and they will check your bags, but it works pretty well. Smaller clubs usually have no security, my local club you just stroll through the turnstiles.


WorldsGreatestPoop t1_j8mw4wq wrote

Then things seem pretty similar. There’s not much security at small stadiums, like 5000 people or less. There’s a ton of security when it’s a major pro stadium.


Flashwastaken t1_j8m3ei4 wrote

Depends on the stadium, where you are sitting and who is playing. If it’s a game with two rival clubs and the fans are known for starting trouble, it could take an hour to get out of the stadium after the game because they don’t let the diehard fans (scum) leave until the other diehard fans (also scum), are on the buses back to wherever it is they are from. This is to stop fights and other hooliganisms.


Syrdon t1_j8nmgdn wrote

It’s about alcohol sales and protecting profits. If you let people leave efficiently they’ll go tailgate in the parking lot instead of buying stadium beer.

Edit: thinking about it, I’ll bet a relative lack of parking largely kills tailgating. Assuming european football stadiums are substantially more reliant on public transit, then they get some of those same protections as a free bonus on not having the same car culture the us does.

Yep. And the ladies have to use a transparent little purse.

el_grort t1_j8khaxk wrote

Crushes are a problem, aye, that's usually a matter of when the game ends (or a riot). Some major ones happened at Ibrox as well, each one caused more changes in either policy and even construction of the exits.

Is the fish nice? I saw it for the first time on my last visit and it surprisingly looked like my local chippy's whereas I was expecting it to look like my school dinner's. Looked appealing but want too hungry and didn't fancy eating standing up


lookofdisdain t1_j8mcynv wrote

Yeah pretty good as far as stadium food goes. But if I’m going to eat at the stadium there are better options IMO:

  • Spurs Signature Beef & Onion Pie
  • Brisket Roll
  • Chicken Katsu Burger

thereAndFapAgain t1_j8nysq2 wrote

Some do but it's shite, not proper chippy stuff. It's mainly for a pie and a beer at half time rather than anything decent like that.

That’s why Brentford should never have left Griffin Park.


definingsound t1_j8kxrkt wrote

Wow! In Canada we have lost all reentry privileges. Leave the stadium? You’re done watching the game from within the stadium.

It started before the pandemic, during Pan Am Games team sports. Now it’s here to stay in every stadium.

So each sports stadium has a captive audience to which they can try to sell all necessary calories and hydration to. Oh and no outside food / drink is allowed unless it’s for a baby. They confiscate it all during the security search upon entry.


Math-Soft t1_j8pdzk9 wrote

Hate seeing the US infect elsewhere. 🤦🏼‍♀️


funklab t1_j8ln4m7 wrote

Do they let you leave the stadium and come back in in the UK?

In the US (at least most places I've gone) once you leave the stadium that's it. Your ticket is now "used" and you can't get back in with it.


ozzeruk82 t1_j8m299b wrote

Not in my experience, QR code gets scanned meaning they can’t allow this otherwise you could pass your phone through gates to a friend. So at least in my experience this data is built on a false premise.


kinggimped t1_j8lv695 wrote

Hey so, I'm a native Brightonian. The funny thing is, Brighton being a seaside town and all, we're kinda famous for our fish and chips. So it's kind of hilarious to see us languishing at the bottom of this particular table, because in daily life you're rarely more than a short walk away from the nearest chippy!

However, this is mostly because the Falmer stadium where B&H Albion play is right at the edge of city limits and quite far from the sea, which is where the majority of the fish and chip shops are. When I was a kid and Albion played at the Goldstone Ground, there was a chippy literally a 2 minute walk from the ground!

Someone really ought to open a chippy out there, though... clearly a gap in the market.


Spid1 t1_j8jfa3w wrote

That seems more than it'd take me at Spurs but I guess it depends what stand you're in as they serve it in the south stand

Do your stadiums re-admit you after leaving? Or is the question just academic?

Just curious, because in the States, we usually don't re-admit, at least the venues I've been to here (Dodger Stadium, Rose Bowl, etc.)


ozzeruk82 t1_j8m2dw6 wrote

No, i believe they don’t, at least in my experience. They scan your phone and there’s no mechanism to “unscan” on leaving.

They do, but it looks like he’s just used google maps so the data is a bit weird


BLDLED t1_j8n3gd7 wrote

I guess I just don't get the point, why would you want to leave the stadium in the middle of a game? Higher quality food (this data doesn't support this meaning), shorter lines? I know you can't answer, its just confusing, and seemingly pointless.


lookofdisdain t1_j8nej99 wrote

Doesn’t take into account food options on the concourse, seat location or average queue times. Think it’s mostly done well because Brighton is a seaside town so people are like LOL NO FISH N CHIPS THERE

jobear6969 t1_j8kw6kp wrote

Does this take into account walking/running slower while carrying the fish and chips? You would presumably be able to run quicker on the way there with both hands free. But the run back would require one hand to be holding the food.

Brewe t1_j8lxw7f wrote

Three things:

  • This is exactly the kind of post we need on this subreddit. Awesome!

  • Does this assume that you can run with the order(s) of fish & chips, or is this running there and power-walking back?

  • Does Tottenham have a fish & chips stand in the lobby?


F_redrik OP t1_j8n0r5h wrote

- Thank you!
- I'm not from England but I'm assuming they can give out fish&chops in boxes with lids on so you can run with it

kinredditshk t1_j8m747m wrote

What's the speed of walking and running? Whatever the thing is, I think at least people will not consider that someone who's more than 300 pounds can walk/run faster than someone who's 150-200 pounds.


F_redrik OP t1_j8mplil wrote

Google Maps uses 5 km/h for walking and 10 km/h for running - i did not take weight into account, but i should probably have found the average weight/height for each city and calculated that into the speed

I think the running speed seems ever so slightly off. Running looks to be twice as quick, for most people, according to Google.

The times look to be only slightly off, like I say, by between 5 and 1 minutes off - making running seem slower than it actually would be(?)

Fascinating but I wonder how they calculated the route.. with West Ham for example, I live and work near the stadium. I know a Fishies nearby that Google says takes 16 mins to get to but the path taken is the longest because it can't work out walking through the Olympic site. You should definitely be able walk there and back quicker than 25 mins.

Leeds is not a 9 minute walk? It's literally across the road. As soon as you leave the ground you just cross over the road. 20 seconds, max
