We are delighted to announce the winner of our Capital One Cup final ticket competition, where a lucky fan won a pair of tickets, courtesy of the competitions sponsors, Capital One.
The competition was fierce with nearly 3500 correct answers sent in, almost melting our inbox such was the clamor for tickets. It's fair to say that we could probably sell out Wembley on our own for this match.
So after randomly drawing a name, the lucky recipient is Steven Wilkinson from Tyne & Wear.
We spoke to Steven, who said;
It's fantastic! I remember when I was seven watching the parade through Roker after the FA Cup Final in '92, just wishing I could have been there!
I've seen Sunderland play at Wembley once, in the playoff final in '98. We were unlucky then, but this time is going to be different!
Steven's also predicting a 2-0 victory for Sunderland on March the 2nd, and is trying to work out which of his family members will be joining him with his other ticket.
Congratulations to Steven, and a huge thank you to everyone who entered.
When we get to the FA Cup final in May, I'm sure we'll have a similar competition and maybe you'll be as lucky as our winner of this one.
Also a huge thank you to Capital One for supplying the tickets. Stay up to date on the Capital One Cup by liking their Facebook page - facebook.com/CapitalOneUK
