has rated The Stadium of Light 4.0 out of 5.

trebor's review of The Stadium of Light

First Class Stadium soon to be a League One ground. atmosphere a bit poor decent supporters this will be out of place next season when clubs with tiny away followings attend. A precursor to this was the 100 or so Burton fans sat up the top tier being outnumbered by stewards.

Location

Sunderlands a long way so you'll be glad to know it's a short walk from the Main station, even less from the Metro stations and even has a direct service to Newcastle Airport.
Sunderland for a city is very basic with plenty of matchday services on route to ground, but very little if you are staying the night. Best off staying in Newcastle for a good night after.

View

Good but not sure if the top tiers have lifts or escalators so if you're away supporter you may need to embark on a big climb.
Sunderland has a large following in terms of supporters being extremely overweight if attendances are high comfort may become restricted, but until (IF) they get back into the Premier League or draw a big club in a cup you should have plenty of room.

Facilities

Toilets weren't as numerous as I'd expect for a large modern ground, but were clean enough at full time.

Food & Drink

Loads of cheap vans around and a Cup of Tea made for you at the kiosks so no faffing around looking for milk etc.

Police & Stewards

Good loads of Police far more than what the way team brought in fans.

Atmosphere

Average, couldn't see the away fans let alone hear them.
