  • Entrance information on tickets is very confusing. Stadium itself is very modern and accommodating. Second visit here and second win SO a lucky to that description. :-)  more »

  • My spiritual home, while Roker Park is where I grew up, the Stadium of Light is where my sporting heart is. So happy not to have been here on a match day and be forced to watch the drivel put out by David Moyes (thankfully he has not quit), and living in the USA means I don't have to put up with watching Burton Albion here... One of the finest built grounds of the past 25 years, if only they'd finish replacing the pink seats.
  • Match was awful but the stadium was very good. Lots of facilities (bars, restaurants, toilets) for the general public to enjoy. Overall, an enjoyable day.
  • Everything you expect from a footy stadium. Tickets are reasonable, plenty of places to grab a quick bite at​ halftime. Nice pitch, nice people, good fun!
  • Great hire venue. We used it to conduct training. Brilliant staff, plentiful coffee and tea. Rooms have a good light. Also, excellent value.
  • Excellent day pool and spa fantastic. Lovely massage and the food for lunch was very good
