With a capacity of 48,707 the Stadium of Light is the sixth biggest football ground in England. Making it Stadia Solutions second biggest ground overall (after Celtic). If that doesn’t make it worthy of its own blog post, I don’t know what does!
Given its name to reflect the strong coal mining history of the region, the stadium features a monument of a Davy lamp outside, to honour the miners of the Wearmouth Colliery, who for many years, carried with them a Davy lamp as part of their working lives.
The much-loved home of Sunderland AFC was completed in 1997 and replaced the club’s former home of Roker Park. The Stadium’s attendance record currently stands at 48,335, when Liverpool visited Wearside in April 2002. It is also a well-respected venue on the European music circuit and often hosts concerts for big name artists.
Our ad formats within the Stadium of Light include 200 A3 washroom posters and 40 large format concourse posters. For further information and the poster specs please click here.
With a successful run of history within top flight football, a period of bad luck/managers has seen Sunderland drop to the third tier at the end of last season. However 2018/19 could be set to be a very successful season for Sunderland AFC after these back to back relegations in recent years.
Currently sitting in second place in the Football League One table, the ultimate goal of promotion to the championship will be at the forefront of the clubs mind as the race against Pompey for the top spot will really be on after Christmas. The Black Cats are also enjoying a lucrative involvement in the Checkatrade Trophy, where they are expected to qualify top of their group and they have just been drawn to play Walsall away in the second round of the FA Cup.
All of the tournament games played at the Stadium of Light are additional value to our advertisers as we only charge for guaranteed league game fixtures. So The Lads are providing plenty of added value to our customers this season.
We all know Football Fans are a loyal bunch and the average fan attendance of 30,068 so far this season is testament to this.
