Welcome back, Brighton & Hove Albion! The Seagulls are back in the top flight of English football for the first time since big perms and short shorts were the order of the day – 1983.

And to celebrate the South Coast club’s promotion to the Premier League, our odds-crunchers have produced a series of specials on their future. And the signs look good…

Our traders make it 1/2 for Chris Hughton’s men to achieve survival next season, while there’s 5/1 on offer for the AMEX Stadium outfit to finish the campaign in the top 10.

The top-tier newboys will be looking to be far more than one season wonders, and there’s 5/4 about them spending the next 3+ seasons in the top tier, with 5/2 for them to make it to the five-year mark.

Elsewhere, local bragging rights look likely, with 1/2 for the Seagulls to beat fierce rivals Crystal Palace anytime during 2017-18, while 5/2 says they do the Prem double over the South Londoners.

And for those Brighton fans dreaming of long-term glory, there’s 5/1 on offer for the club to play in the Champions League by 2023, while 33/1 says they’ll lift the trophy by 2028.

A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “The Seagulls are flying high right now, and we’re predicting the good times to continue, with survival, beating old rivals and possibly even a top-half triumph.”
