Cats gearing up for home opener

by Kate Smith

Sunderland set to welcome United to the SoL.

Sunderland AFC will be looking to build on their recent successes over Manchester United this weekend when the Black Cats open their Barclays Premier League home campaign.

Having recorded three consecutive victories in all competitions, including the penalty shoot-out win which sent Gus Poyet’s side to the Capital One Cup final, the Black Cats will be looking to make it four in a row when Louis van Gaal’s side travel to Wearside for a 4.00pm kick-off on Sunday 24 August.

The Stadium of Light ticket office and collection points are expected to be extremely busy on Sunday and supporters attending the fixture are advised to arrive early to ensure they are in their seats in time for kick-off.

Season cards for the 2014-15 season are still available, with prices starting from £400 for adults and from £300 for over 65s. Supporters under 22 years old can enjoy all 19 Barclays Premier League games at the Stadium of Light for only £220, whilst under 16s season cards cost just £99. Special Family Zone packages available at £425 for one adult and one junior (an additional child can also be added to this package for only £25).

Adults from £27, over 65s from £23, under 22s from £19 and under 16s from £12.
