Players back fans and local charity

by Sunderland AFC

Travelling supporters who attended defeat at Southampton offered ticket refunds.

Sunderland’s players have today offered to refund supporters the cost of their match tickets, as well as supporting a local charity, following Saturday’s defeat to Southampton.

Fans who do not wish to claim a personal refund will have the cost of their ticket donated to Sunderland-based children’s charity Grace House, which provides respite services for children and young people throughout the North East region, who have life-shortening conditions for which there is no known cure. 

Speaking on behalf of the squad, Sunderland AFC’s captain John O’Shea said: “We win and lose as a team, players, staff and fans, however we wanted to acknowledge and thank the supporters who travelled such a long way to give us their backing and despite everything, stayed with us until the final whistle.”

Anyone wishing to claim a refund should contact the club before 5pm on Wednesday 5th November. 

Supporters are kindly asked to return their match ticket either in person at the Stadium of Light ticket office or by post: SAFC (Refunds), PO Box 165, Sunderland, SR5 1WF. Supporters must enclose name and address details, along with their customer number.

After the November 5 deadline, the outstanding money not claimed by supporters will be given to Grace House.
