Sunderland Issue Further Wembley Ticket Advice

The club have issued a warning to fans considering selling cup final tickets.

Sunderland AFC would like to advise its supporters that standard tickets in the Sunderland end of Wembley for the Capital One Cup final can only be purchased through the club's official channels.

The club has been made aware of fraudulent attempts to sell tickets for the game, which are now being investigated by the Police, The Football League and Sunderland AFC.

Supporters are reminded that each ticket is registered and traceable to the individual who purchased it. Under the terms and conditions of issue, anyone found attempting to sell, or who has sold tickets for the game, will have the tickets cancelled and will also jeopardise their SAFC season card.

The club would also like to advise supporters to exercise caution by not posting pictures of their tickets on social media.

Season card holders can only purchase their ticket in-person at the Stadium of Light ticket office or by telephone, on the 24 hour hotline number, 0871 911 1973. Due to the high volume of calls, supporters are thanked in advance for their patience when contacting the club or call centre.

Applications cannot be made online for this fixture.

Supporters must have their customer number available when purchasing tickets as applications cannot be processed without this number.

This advice is obviously important to heed. No one wants to see either Sunderland fans ripped off by being charged extortionate prices for tickets or season card holders being lost.

Hopefully those who qualify for tickets but can't go for whatever reason are responsible about it all.

On that topic, season card holders are also reminded they only have a couple more days to secure their guaranteed tickets.

Tickets for the Capital One Cup final remain on sale for SAFC season card holders until 12noon on Saturday 15th February.

The SAFC ticket office and telephone hotlines have experienced unprecedented demand over the two-phased sales process. Every season card holder and seasonal member has been guaranteed a ticket, with almost all having secured their seat already.

The club would like to thank supporters for their patience during the application process and urges any season card holder who has yet to secure their seat, to do so in advance of Saturday's noon deadline to avoid disappointment, as tickets are now very limited.

The club will aim to allocate season card holders their price preference at point of sale where possible and will allocate the best available seat at this time.  This however is not guaranteed and the next available price will then be allocated. Once a ticket has been sold it cannot be upgraded or downgraded in category.

Season card holders can apply either in-person at the Stadium of Light ticket office or by telephone, on the 24 hour hotline number, 0871 911 1973. Applications cannot be made online.

Supporters must have their customer number available when purchasing tickets as applications cannot be processed without this number.
