What to expect from the Stadium of Light crowd?

You can get up to an outrageous 9,000 away fans (out of 49,000 seats) for cup games, but only 3,000 in the league. The home fans though are exceptionally accommodating: friendly, excitable and there to enjoy a great day of football. The crowd is always behind their team, always cheering and making noise, so the atmosphere is never below a 7/10. For a good game, it’s a 10. If you’re a visiting Sunderland fan, you’ll be treated like family and have a fantastic afternoon, guaranteed.

The Stadium of Light is known countrywide for having one of the best atmphospheres in the country. Even on lower priority cup games against lesser opposition the ground is bouncing and the fans are roaring their heroes on.

Before the players come out onto the pitch – the PA system blares the music which gets everyone in the mood. Sunderland fans have a fantastic reputation for being friendly as well. Football is family here and it really feels like it, before, after and during the game.
