Entertainment at the SoL as part of Nelson Mandela Day.

To mark the club's collaboration with the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Saturday's game against Manchester United was designated Nelson Mandela Day. 

African musicians, the Abatimbo Drummers of Burundi, entertained fans before the game and again at half-time showcasing the unique musical sound of Africa.

Sunderland’s players also sported one-off t-shirts for the pre-game warm up, bearing the foundation’s logo and a special ‘text to donate’ message in support of the foundation.
