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 = 271 (approx. journey time 4 hours 45 minutes)
Recommended area for car parking
There is only limited parking at the ground itself and there is a residents only parking scheme in operation on streets close to the stadium (especially on the estate behind the North Stand).SAFC advise fans to use car parks at St. Mary’s (SR1 3AH), Sunniside (SR1 1UL) and The Bridges (SR1 3PZ). These are all just a 10 to 15-minute walk from the stadium. Parking charges apply. Alternatively, supporters can take advantage of SAFC’s ‘Park and Ride’ or ‘Park and Walk’ schemes. The Park and Ride scheme runs from the Sunderland Enterprise Park on Wessington Way (A1231), which is easily accessible from the A19 and is clearly signposted ‘Park and Ride’ (SR5 3XG).
Travelling by coach?
OWWSA will be running a coach that will leave Adams Park at 07.00. Travel prices are £35 for adults, £34 for seniors, and £33 for juniors. The price for non-members is £40 (no refund if game is cancelled and the coaches have left their depot). Non-members are required to pay at the time of booking their seat. If you wish to book by phone (Rena 01494 520179, Graham 07876 267301) or by e-mail (email@example.com) you need to do so by Thursday 9th January at 5pm.
Using the train?
This is possible from London Kings Cross. There is a 07:30 departure, changing at Newcastle, arriving in Sunderland at 13:01. On the return there is a service departing at 17:30, again changing at Newcastle, arriving KX at 23:03. 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, but please take note of possible bus replacement services which may be in operation on the day.
Facilities for away fans
The ground capacity is 49,000 (all seated). Away fans are housed in the Upper Tier of the Carling North Stand at one end of the stadium, where around 3,000 fans can be accommodated. The turnstiles open 90 minutes before kickoff and the away turnstiles are numbered 69-72. We have been given an initial allocation of just under 600 seats in Tier 3, Blocks P32 and P34. The facilities are good, but you do have to climb many flights of stairs to reach this top tier.
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.
