‘Grand in Your Hand’ lottery tickets are available throughout the Stadium of Light up until kick off priced at £1 per ticket, with all proceeds going to the Foundation of Light, the registered charity of Sunderland AFC.

-        Handling cash and taking payment for the ‘Grand in Your Hand’ tickets
