Hi all!

Congratulations with yesterday's victory. I am Ruben, a supporter of Sparta Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Not only the oldest professional football club in Holland, but also with a historic link with SAFC: we actually took over the design of your shirt back in ending of the 19th century. That's why we started following Sunderland for a bit. We are now planning a trip to come over with a few lads and to visit the Stadium of Light for the match against Accrington the 25th of April. I was wondering if you would maybe be willing to give us some recommendations for our trip: for instance, which pubs are best to get in the mood, is it possible to get a tour through the stadium and are there supporter homes which are open for us to come by?

I hope this question is posted at the right place. Looking forward to our visit! Greetings from Rotterdam

Start off in the city centre.. William Jameson's is always a good bet. Sloanes Pool Bar is also a good bet and a little closer to the ground. Then head over the bridge and there a few clubs and a football museum where you can get a beer. There is also The Wheatsheaf that has pre match entertainment and the Colliery Tavern that are very close to the stadium and are usually lively.
Stadium tours can't be booked on match days, but are available other times. Hope this helps.

Thanks guys! Appreciate it.

Additional question: to buy tickets, what is the most atmospheric part of the stadium?

Sadly at the moment there isn't one.  Lot's of negativity among our support following our painful demise.

Oh dear. We'll have to hope for a miracle I guess. Do you guys think you will recover for a bit this season?

It's nice that we can just wear our Sparta Rotterdam-shirts to the game by the way, since they're so similar.

Again, thanks for all the help!
