A communication from Sunderland FC to help the traveling claret and blue army for the match tomorrow night:
Most of the relevant information for your supporters can be found here: www.safc.com/fans/stadium-guide
For parking we would recommend St Mary’s Car Park in the city centre – SR1 3AH
For supporters coming in by Metro from Newcastle please ask them to use St Peter’s Metro on arrival as this is the closest station.
Supporters travelling back to Newcastle need to use the Stadium of Light metro station as this is the only station with metro trains to Newcastle for 30 minutes after full time.
Most pubs in the city centre are away fan friendly. For pubs near the ground I would recommend the Colliery Tavern and the Hilton Hotel which are both situated near the away end.
Disabled supporters can use the lift in the Black Cats Bar to get to the away end. The entrance to the Black Cats Bar is right next to the away turnstiles and our stewards can direct them to the entrance on arrival.
