Festive treat for Robert

Fan scoops special Rewards prize.

Every month one lucky season card holder is drawn out and random to win a special prize as part of the SAFC Rewards scheme.

This month’s competition winner is Robert Hudson.

He can treat his family and friends to a free Christmas meal for 10 at the Riverview Brasserie restaurant at the Stadium of Light.

Robert, who has been coming to watch his team play for almost half a century, was delighted with the prize.

He said: “It’s a nice thing to be able to share with my friends and family. We’ll all get together and it should be a great time.”

After many decades of supporting the club, few things have topped the 1973 FA Cup Final for Robert.

“I just about remember it, it was rainy in the morning and then it brightened up. I can only properly remember the goal! Other great times that I’ve had watching the club have been Gary Rowell’s hat trick at St James’ Park and the Man City replay in the cup.”

The lucky prize winner also discussed the SAFC Rewards scheme, and how it could benefit other season card holders.

He said: “I’ve got to be honest, I’ve not really used that much of the rewards up to now. I’ll definitely be using them in the future and I would recommend other people to do it. There are a ton of great deals in there.”

Sunderland AFC are the only team in the top flight to benefit their season card holders with such an extensive range of discounts and privileges, all of which can be found on
