  • The home of my favourite team, will always love it. Away fans share the pre match experience in the Fan Zone, usually great craik.
  • Always enjoy the welcome we get when travelling to Sunderland. Excellent stadium, one to be proud of. Only down side is the nose bleeds you get from sitting so high up in the Gods lol
  • Nice place with decent VIP boxes. Food in them is good and the staff servicing is great. Just one thing...you wouldn't want to be caught supporting any other team :)
  • Great stadium,good atmosphere when,even a few mackams are friendly.
  • Watched England play Australia at the SoL. Nice stadium and we were really close to the pitch.
