Sunderland FC's ground, the Stadium of Light is a spectacular sight even if you aren't a football fan. 

The Stadium of Light’s current capacity of 48,707 makes the club’s home the sixth-biggest football ground in England.The stadium, built on the former site of the Monkwearmouth Colliery, opened with a showpiece game against Ajax in July 1997.

The stadium stands on the banks of the River Wear, a vision of the future and a landmark for Wearside.

Sunderland has always been a city without a cathedral, but the stadium has created a spiritual home for local people as thousands of supporters flock to games to experience the passion and enjoy the action.

The stadium's design drew inspiration from Sunderland's proud industrial heritage in glass-making, shipbuilding and coal-mining. With its bowl-shaped lower deck and a second tier over the West and North Stands, it provides the ultimate in spectator comfort.
