Sunderland AFC (Association football Club) play in the English Premier League, out of their home ground known as the Stadium of Light. Sunderland tickets are in high demand, especially from supporters in the local region. The ground can hold up to 49,000 supporters, and Sunderland tickets are highly sought after, especially for games against their local rivals, Newcastle.
The club have enjoyed considerable success in their time, winning the old first division, the forerunner of the Premier League, 6 times, and the FA Cup twice.
The Stadium of Light is built in such a way as to allow for future expansion, and it would be feasible for the stadium to be expanded to hold over 60,000 supporters.
Sunderland have had quite a few noted players over the years, including names such as England stars Darren Bent and Kevin Philips, and Republic of Ireland star Niall Quinn.
In recent years, the team have found themselves struggling to make an impact in the English Premier League, but fans are hopeful that the coming years will see Sunderland AFC competing again at the upper end of the table.
