Sunderland AFC Ladies can secure promotion to the top tier of women’s football next weekend when they face Doncaster Rovers Belles in FA WSL 2.
Table topping Sunderland take on the second placed Belles at the Hetton Centre (Eppleton CW) on Saturday 4 October, with the later kick-off time of 7.30pm, knowing that a win would secure the league title and a place in WSL 1.
Supporters can now attend both of the club’s fixtures on the day with the ladies’ kick-off having been moved back an hour to avoid a clash with the first team’s home Barclays Premier League game against Stoke City at 3.00pm on the same day.
In their maiden WSL season, the unbeaten Wearsiders have won 13 of their 15 matches, scoring 39 goals in the process, while conceding just eleven times.
With three games left of their campaign, they sit eight points clear of Doncaster and if they were to record their sixth consecutive league victory at the weekend their lead would become unassailable.
Tickets for the match are £2 for adult SAFC season card holders and free for U16 season card holders (both on production of their 2014-15 season card).
Tickets for non-season card holders are £4 for adults and £1 for under 18s and over 65s.
Tickets will be available from the Hetton Centre on the day of the game (subject to availability) and are available in advance from the Stadium of Light ticket office or online.
