It's back: Play on the Pitch 2020

Create your own memorable moment when Play on the Pitch returns to the Stadium of Light this May!

The event gives fans the opportunity to take their place in the players’ dressing rooms before they walk through the tunnel for a 90 minute game on the hallowed turf.

As well as including drinks in the dressing room, each team will receive a souvenir team photo to commemorate the day. And after the action, teams will enjoy a hearty meal in one of the Stadium of Light’s historic hospitality suites, with the opportunity to invite family and friends.

Finally, in true matchday style, a Man of the Match presentation will reward the stars of the day.

Play on the Pitch will take place between the 13-25th May, with sessions subject to availability.
