Wembley: Play-Off Final ticket details

Sunderland AFC is pleased to confirm ticket information to supporters for the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium later this month.

Following their Semi-Final victory over Portsmouth, the Black Cats will face Charlton Athletic or Doncaster Rovers in the Final on Sunday 26 May 2019 (KO 3pm) in a bid to reach the Championship.

Jack Ross’ side will discover their opponents on Friday when the two above sides meet in their Play-Off Semi-Final second leg at the Valley.

SAFC have been allocated 37,700 tickets for East End of Wembley Stadium and tickets will be sold from the North Stand round to the South Stand.


Pricing categories at Wembley Stadium are split into six sections, with adult, young adult (17-21yrs) and concession – senior citizens (65+) and children aged 16 and under – tickets available.

Alongside this, a booking fee of £2.40 per ticket is applicable. A postage charge of £2.50 per order is also in place. We appreciate that these additional fees are higher than SAFC charges for games at the Stadium of Light, but they are standard prices for Wembley Stadium.

Ticket prices are as follows:

Cat 1 - £80 Adults, £60 Young Adult, £40 Concession
Cat 2 - £62 Adults, £46.50 Young Adult, £31 Concession
Cat 3 - £56 Adults, £42 Young Adult, £28 Concession
