Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Use the northbound M1 and at J32 take left lanes to join the M18. At J2 exit onto A1(M). At junction 62, take the A690 exit to Sunderland / Durham. After about eight miles, you will reach a roundabout, at which turn left onto the A19, signposted for the Tyne Tunnel. Stay in the left-hand lane and take the second slip road towards Sunderland (signposted Stadium of Light, A1231 Sunderland). This takes you onto a bridge crossing over the River Wear. Turn right onto the A1231 following the signs for Sunderland. Go straight over four roundabouts into Sunderland. Then go through two sets of traffic lights (keeping in the left-hand lane at the second set, going straight on towards Roker rather than the city centre) and you will see the Stadium car park on your right, about a mile after the traffic lights.
Mileage from High Wycombe = 274 (approx. journey time 4 hours 35 minutes)
Recommended area for car parking
There is only limited parking at the ground and there is a residents’ only parking scheme in operation on streets close to the stadium. You can park at the Stadium of Light Metro Station (cost £4) or alternatively park in the city centre and walk to the ground (about 10-15 minutes). There is also a 'Park & Ride' scheme in operation on matchdays, free for both home and away supporters. This is situated at Sunderland Enterprise Park, which is well signposted just off the A1231. Buses run every five minutes, for 90 minutes before kickoff and continue after the game until everyone has gone.
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 07.00. Travel prices are £34 for adults, £33 for seniors, and £32 for juniors. The price for non-members is £39 (no refund if game is cancelled and the coaches have left their depot). If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) you need to do so by Thursday 15th November at 17.00 hrs.
Using the train?
Grand Central do operate a direct service from Kings Cross to Sunderland. On the outward leg there is a departure from Kings Cross at 07:06 arriving at Sunderland at 11.50. On the return there is a direct service at 17:29 (arrives KX at 22:04). Following that there is a departure at 18:29, changing at Newcastle, that arrives Kings Cross at 23:18. Sunderland Railway Station is located just under one mile away from the Stadium of Light and takes around 15-20 minutes to walk. For anyone using the Metro the nearest station is St Peters.
Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 49,000 (all seated). Away fans are now housed in the Upper Tier of the North Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 3,000 fans can be housed for league games. The facilities are good but you do have to climb a large number of flights of stairs to reach this top tier.
Spare time on your hands?
The Club have opened a Fan Zone which is located outside the South East part of the stadium. It is available to both home and away supporters. Entry is free. Alternatively, there are two social clubs; the Sunderland Companions club, and the New Democratic Club, both on North Bridge Street which are about a five-minute walk away from the stadium. Although they get very busy they do welcome away supporters. The Albion pub, on Victor Street, off Roker Avenue, is a five-minute walk from the ground, with some parking nearby.
