Season card holders can expect their 2020-21 renewal packs to arrive next week.
Sunderland AFC supporters have watched their side go undefeated at the Stadium of Light in 2020 and as Phil Parkinson’s side prepare for the final run-in, season card holders will be able to take advantage of early bird pricing and renew their seat for the 2020-21 campaign when renewal packs arrive next week.
Early bird prices ensure that supporters won’t pay any more for their seat next season than they did for 2019-20, providing they renew by the deadline.
Sunderland AFC chairman Stewart Donald said: “Our fans have been tremendous since I came to the club. We have over 24,000 season card holders this season and to have such amazing support, both home and away, makes us the envy of so many clubs. I would like to personally thank everyone for the backing they have given Phil and the players in recent months. We’ve got some real momentum behind us at present, which bodes well for a strong and positive finish to the season, with promotion being our aim.
“I hope as many supporters as possible can commit to renewing their seats for next season and be part of things moving forward. “
CHANGES FOR 2020-21
This season we have made changes to the Direct Debit scheme, spreading the cost of your season card over four payments.
Supporters who previously paid by Direct Debit and have not defaulted on a payment will have their season card automatically renewed and don’t need to do anything to guarantee their seat for 2020-21. Renewal information (by post or email) will confirm the Direct Debit payment schedule and terms and conditions.
Supporters who don’t currently pay by Direct Debit can still take advantage of the scheme, which is free to join and there is no interest charged. For the first time, supporters will be able sign up to the Direct Debit scheme online, full details will be included in renewal packs.
KEY DATES & DEADLINES

After this date your season card will be considered as lapsed and you are no longer eligible to buy a seat at the early bird price. Any purchase would be termed as a new season card and charged at the new rate, which will be confirmed after the end of the season.
