Wow, it's getting close now, isn't it! Please see below for further information from the club which is relevant to fans traveling and headed to the ground that weekend.


Sunderland AFC would like to advise supporters that the Stadium of Light car parks will be closed this weekend, with vehicle access only available for customers attending club functions or visiting the Aquatic Centre.

Fans travelling to Wembley are advised there will be no parking available for vehicles at the stadium, with car parks closing on Friday evening and re-opening Monday morning.

Supporters are kindly asked to consider the residents in streets surrounding the stadium and use designated parking areas only.

In addition, fans headed to Wembley are also reminded of the information regarding the pubs close to the ground:

Supporters travelling to Wembley for the Capital One Cup final on March 2 are advised that there is a Controlled Drinking Zone in place around Wembley Stadium.
