Sorry to post something non-transfery on deadline day, but it's worth mentioning that Sunderland have released the ticket information for the upcoming Capital One Cup game against Stoke City. See below:
Sunderland AFC advanced to the third round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday evening, after beating Birmingham City 3-0 at St Andrew's.
Goals from Jordi Gomez, Adam Johnson and Connor Wickham saw off Lee Clark's side and the Black Cats now take on Stoke City as they look to emulate last season's cup run, which saw Gus Poyet's side reach a Wembley cup final for the first time in over two decades.
Mark Hughes' side will travel to the Stadium of Light on Tuesday 23 September, 7:45pm and SAFC Season card holders can enjoy reduced price tickets for the game.
There will be a special season card holder priority purchase period from 9am, Tuesday 02 September until 5pm, Wednesday 10 September. SAFC 2014/15 season card holders can buy a ticket during this time for a discounted price of only £10.
Seats for season card holders under 16 and over 65 years of age are just £5. Black Cats Bar members can also purchase their seat during this period. Season card holders buying a ticket during the priority sale period will receive a loyalty point for this game.
Tickets for non-season card holders are priced at £15 for adults and £5 for under 16s and over 65s.
The season card holder discount applies only to tickets purchased during the priority period. Adult tickets purchased after 5pm on Wednesday 10 September will be priced at £15. Black Cats Bar tickets will be £25.
Tickets will go on sale from 9am, Tuesday 02 September. All season card seats will be reserved until 5pm Wednesday 10 September.
Supporters enrolled on the 2014/15 cup payment scheme will have their season card automatically activated for this game. Fans are reminded however that this scheme must be re-applied for each season.
