Press release from Sunderland AFC:
Mick McCarthy will show his gratitude to Sunderland’s season ticket holders next month by inviting them to the first of an exclusive series of fans’ nights at the Stadium of Light.
McCarthy, Black Cats coach Kevin Ball and a number of Sunderland’s players will top the billing for the night.
Sunderland Football Club will use the events as a way of thanking their season ticket holders for their continued support.
In association with their radio commentary partner, Metro Radio, and the Sunderland Echo, the Club will host the first of the exclusive nights on Thursday, October 2.
Tickets will be free and offered to SEASON TICKET HOLDERS ONLY on a first come, first served basis. The lucky fans will be able to join McCarthy and the selected players in the Stadium of Light’s Sports Bar.
The Club would like to recognise the tremendous support shown by its loyal season ticket holders who have continued their vocal and passionate backing of the team.
The events will give them the chance to canvass McCarthy and his players about their hopes for the season.
McCarthy has praised the passion of Sunderland fans since his arrival at the Stadium of Light and realises the impact the fans’ backing can have on his team this season.
He said: “Every Sunderland fan I’ve met since I have arrived has been completely genuine in their desire for the team to do well. We feel like we’re moving in the right direction now and the backing from the fans so far this season has made a real difference.
“We feel like we’ve finally turned the corner but know there still a long way to go and to be successful this season we need the fans full backing. I know the team and the fans all want the stadium to become a fortress again.”
Metro Radio commentator Simon Crabtree will compere the evening and join McCarthy, Ball and the players on stage to take fans’ questions, before donning his quiz master’s hat to host the Ultimate SAFC Prize Quiz.
