Sunderland AFC has a thriving supporters branch network, with over 50 UK-based branches and 35 overseas groups.
To recognise its growing international fanbase, the Branch Liaison Council, which represents every branch in the UK and worldwide, has joined forces with the club to host an international fans’ day, when Sunderland AFC take on Ipswich Town on Saturday 08 February 2020.
The event has grown from an original approach to the Branch Liaison Council (BLC) from USA-based supporter John Ellington.
Fans from across the globe will be invited to join what will be a special gathering to celebrate Sunderland AFC’s incredible support around the world.
Speaking about the event, Sunderland AFC chairman Stewart Donald said: “This is a great idea and our thanks go to the members of the BLC for their hard work in putting together such a packed itinerary.
“Our north east fan base is thriving, and we are also seeing an increase in interest from supporters from outside the UK, no doubt due on no small part by the success of the recent Netflix ‘Sunderland ‘til I Die’ documentary.
"Wearside is famous for the warmth of its welcome and it will be wonderful to meet some of our many international supporters on the day."
Cath Reid, secretary of the Branch Liaison Council: “We are excited at the prospect of meeting up with some of our many international members. They are an important part of our Sunderland family and hopefully this can become an annual event, growing year on year.”
The BLC has put together a packed schedule of activities aimed at giving international visitors a true taste of Sunderland, including two matches at the Stadium of Light.
The schedule includes:
FRIDAY 07
A tour of the Stadium of Light and history talk from a Sunderland AFC former player.
Fans Party, to be held at the Fans Museum in Sunderland, affording an opportunity for supporters to mix with each other and enjoy some of our famous Sunderland hospitality.
SATURDAY 08
Supporters get together in the SAFC Fan Zone for pre-match drinks and entertainment SAFC v Ipswich Town, Stadium of Light
Post-match drinks and food in Sunderland
SUNDAY 09
A tour of the Beacon of Light and presentation from the Foundation of Light, showcasing their life-changing work in the local community.
International supporters interested in attending should email [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Once again great to hear.

Everything seems to be a positive at the moment and after the horror of the last couple of seasons I am absolutely delighted for our club and fans. Long may it continue.

Cath ReId deserves so much credit for the work she does for the BLC, BTW my leader at Coxhoe, Jim Gilling is the chairman of the BLC.

Well I will be arriving several months too early. Bit disappointed that club has changed it's policy on stadium tours and now only available late in week and not early in week which is when I am visiting. So will miss out on that one. Also is anyone else an international member as I joined in july and apart from initial email have heard no more. Also several of the benefits stated now have vanished from the list of goodies. Will email the club today .

Me and Mr H will come to Tranmere game - been so long since I made it to a match! Prefer night games too.

Anyone want to meet up for a drink before hand in the bar at the Hilton and meet our friend oxfordshire?  Or elsewhere nearby - just not a huge fan of standing in the cold and potential rain outside the Colliery Tavern!

The Colliery Tavern is a great place for meet ups but my old legs are no longer keen on walking or standing so a no go for me.
The Hilton is a popular spot and can get very full and we also have the option of the fan zone, the plus is you get to meet Charlie at the bar, the negative it can be cold in October and again seats are rare.

I am happy with any option and will be there around 6.30 when the bus lands.

Tell me where and when and I will be there with hugs for the boys and kisses for the girls.
