MCH Arena

Black Cats to travel to Denmark

by Ashley Houghton

Sunderland AFC will play the final game of its pre-season preparations in Denmark next week.

Paolo Di Canio’s men travel to Scandinavia to face FC Midtjylland at the MCH Arena in Herning, on Wednesday 7 August, in a 6.00pm kick-off (local time).

Ticket details for the trip to face the Danish Superliga side will be announced shortly.

The Black Cats recently took part in a ten-day training camp in Italy and have just returned from Hong Kong, where they beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 to secure a place in the final of the prestigious Barclays Asia Trophy against Manchester City.

The trip to Denmark will see Sunderland play their final friendly game ahead of the start of the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season, when they kick off their campaign with a home game against Fulham FC, on Saturday 17 August at 3.00pm.

Tickets for the Fulham game at the Stadium of Light are on sale now, priced from £25 for adults and £10 for under 16s.

Season cards for 2013-14 are also available, starting from £425 for adults, £295 for young people under 22 and £320 for over 65s. Junior season cards (children under the age of 16) are priced at just £99 in all concessionary areas of the stadium, with the exception of the special Family Zone package, where there are additional discounts available, with an adult and junior (under 16) package just £450. Additional children can also be added to this package for only £25 each.

All tickets are sold subject to ground regulations.
