Sunderland Travel and Stadium Information

The Stadium of Light is the magnificent home of Sunderland AFC. The stadium, built on the former site of the Monkwearmouth Colliery by Ballast Wiltshire plc, opened with a showpiece game against Ajax in July 1997 and initially had a capacity of 42,000.
Construction officially began in May 1996, took 14 months to complete and produced what is now regarded as one of the finest stadiums in Europe.
With the subsequent North Stand extension and other ground improvements, the present-day capacity is 49,000, making the Stadium of Light the fifth-biggest football stadium in England.
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).
So please check for any warning signs on lamp posts before parking, or you may end up with a hefty parking ticket for your trouble.
Instead you can park at the Stadium of Light Metro Station (cost £4) or alternatively, you can park in the city centre and walk to the ground (about 10-15 minutes). Allow plenty of time for your journey.
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 kick off and continue after the game until everyone has gone.
