Wembley ticket fraud warning

by Kate Smith

Advice for supporters ahead of cup final.

Sunderland AFC would like to advise its supporters that standard tickets in the Sunderland end of Wembley for the Capital One Cup final can only be purchased through the club’s official channels or by being a member of Club Wembley.

The club has been made aware of fraudulent attempts to sell tickets for the game, which are now being investigated by the Police, The Football League and SAFC.

Supporters are reminded that each ticket is registered and traceable to the individual who purchased it. Under the terms and conditions of issue, anyone found attempting to sell, or who has sold tickets for the game, will have the tickets cancelled and will also jeopardise their SAFC season card.  

The club would also like to advise supporters to exercise caution by not posting pictures of their tickets on social media.

Season card holders can only purchase their ticket in-person at the Stadium of Light ticket office or by telephone, on the 24 hour hotline number, 0871 911 1973. Due to the high volume of calls, supporters are thanked in advance for their patience when contacting the club or call centre.

Applications cannot be made online for this fixture.

Supporters must have their customer number available when purchasing tickets as applications cannot be processed without this number.

All tickets are sold subject to ground regulations.
