Sunderland AFC, In Brief
To begin with, came into existence in 1879. The club commands much respect from football supporters across the UK.
Sunderland was once known as the “Bank of England” club. However, their long-suffering supporters have seen many good and bad times.
The team plays football at The Stadium of Light and has done since 1997. Indeed, the all-seater Stadium has a capacity of 51,000.
Before their move to the new stadium, the club played at Roker Park. The famous Roker Roar also made the move with the team.
The atmosphere is electric and can create the “twelfth man” such is the noise. It may be intimidating to visiting teams but the Mackems are well known for their friendly nature. Visiting supporters can mingle with the home supporters easily.
Of course, Sunderland plays their home games in a red and white strip.
Sunderland has won the highest league in England six times. Indeed, only five other football clubs can better this.
- Football World Championship Winners: (1895)
- England 1st tier Winners: (1891-92, 1892-93, 1894-95, 1901-02, 1912-13, 1935-36)
- English 2nd tier Winners: (1975-76, 1995-96, 1998-99, 2004-05, 2006-07)
- FA Cup Winners: (1937, 1973)
- BBC Sports Personality Team of the Year Award: Winners in 1973 (due to their success in the FA Cup)
So, the club has a lot of decent honours. However, the club has lost a little glory recently by not reaching its full potential.
The club has a few nicknames:
- The Black Cats
- The Mackems
- The Wearsiders
Sunderland AFC – Football Rivalries
Obviously, with Newcastle being only 12 miles away, the two cities are fierce rivals. The Wear-Tyne derby is one to behold. Other local rivals are Middlesbrough FC but this is not too intense.
In contrast, when Sunderland play Norwich City the teams compete for “The Friendly Cup” (Friendship Trophy). This dates back to 1985 when the fans struck up a friendship in the League Cup Final (Milk Cup).
Dutch club Feyenoord and Sunderland AFC also share a mutual friendship after Wearside shipbuilders found jobs in Rotterdam during the 1970s and 80s. That friendship remains to this day.
