Download your ticket before you travel

Road closures

Supporters are advised that several vehicle lockdowns have been implemented on matchdays at the Stadium of Light for the 2023-24 season.
The new measures, which are in agreement with the local Safety Advisory Group, will enhance supporter safety and allow crowds to successfully disperse following the full-time whistle before the roads reopen.

Vehicles will not be able to access the stadium site from 30 minutes prior to kick off until the fixture in question has started, with the stadium site once again locking down 30 minutes before the final whistle.
The roads will then reopen to vehicles wishing to depart or enter the stadium site once major crowds have dispersed, which typically takes 30-40 minutes after the conclusion of each game.
We thank supporters for their understanding in relation to this matter.

Turnstiles will be open from 1:30pm.

Reusable Cups

The ONE Planet ONE Chance® Reusable Cup System encourages fans to return their cups to dedicated purple bins located throughout the stadium, ready for Event Cup Solutions’ on-site team to collect.

The three-year agreement will reduce the Club's emissions and encourage sustainability at the Stadium of Light whilst raising funds for SAFC's official charity partner, the Foundation of Light. 10% of the cups are currently incorrectly disposed of. We ask all supporters to please locate the correct purple bins for these cups and use them accordingly. Find out more information.

Click and Collect

Our click-and-collect system will also be available on bottled orders in the North and South stand. Supporters can use interactive screens to order collect immediately or at half time.

South Stand Ticket Checks

As a result of concerns raised by supporters in the South Stand there will be additional ticket checks in place for Wednesday's match. The checks will be in place to ensure only South Stand ticket holders enter the South Stand concourse area at halftime. Supporters without a South stand ticket will be refused entry.

Supporters are requested to have their tickets ready for inspection when making their way onto the concourse.

Supporters are reminded that they must occupy the seat assigned to them on their ticket and that moving seats is a breach of ground regulations.

Sunderland AFC has stated its intention to apply to the Sports Ground Safety Authority to introduce licensed standing in the South Stand for the 2024-25 season. The enhanced ticket checks are being implemented in support of this intention.
