Fans invited to watch Black Cats train

Sunderland AFC’s first team players are to train at the Stadium of Light on the first day of school half-term holidays next week and the session will be open to supporters to come along and watch.

David Moyes will put his squad through their paces on Monday afternoon, as they prepare for their trip to Everton. There will be music and entertainment in and around the stadium prior to the session, including face-painting and football-themed activities for young supporters. Stadium concourse facilities will also be open, serving hot and cold drinks and a range of food items.

Entry is free, however supporters aged 12 or under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Parking is available at the stadium on a first-come, first-served basis.

The open training session will take place on Monday 20 February, commencing at 1pm, with access available from 12noon. Entry to the stadium will be via exit four, which is located in the west stand area, adjacent to the club store. Stewards will be on duty to direct supporters on arrival.
