Following on from the success of its international membership scheme, Sunderland AFC is launching a brand-new membership scheme for supporters based in the United Kingdom, who are unable to commit to a season card.
The UK membership, which allows fans to demonstrate their support for the club and enjoy some great benefits, will be split into two categories comprising of an adult membership and a concession membership (under 18/over 65).
Members who sign up to the seasonal membership package, which runs until 30 April 2020, will enjoy benefits including priority access to away tickets and cup fixtures, including any future finals and play-offs (after season card holders) and more.
The UK membership package includes:
- Priority access to away tickets before general sale (after the Black Cat Point priority period)
- Join the Black Cats Points scheme, with any points accrued then added to a future season card purchase
- Priority access to cup fixtures, including any future finals and play-offs (after season card holders)
- A match ticket for a home league game of your choice for just £10
- 10% off safcstore.com for first online purchase
- Digital membership card
Executive director, Charlie Methven, said: “Following the successful launch of our international membership scheme, we quickly focussed our attention on how we could give our UK-based fans, who are unable to commit to a season card, the opportunity to cement their commitment to the club.
“We have over 24,000 season card holders who are our lifeblood, but our support isn’t simply limited to the North East, and from Penzance to John O’Groats, I’ve quickly learnt that wherever you are in the world, you are never far away from a massive Lads fan.
“The UK membership will give those fans a chance to show their loyalty, while also being recognised as passionate supporters.”
An adult SAFC UK membership is available for £40 and a concession (under 18/over 65) is £25.
