From the South
Leave the A1 (M) at junction 62, at the roundabout and take the third exit onto the A690. Remain on the A690 for 6 miles and then turn off left at the roundabout when the A690 meets the A19. From the A19 take the A1231 (Sunderland North) turn off. After four roundabouts keep to the left hand lane and follow signs for B1289 (Roker). Continue on this road and you will see the stadium on your right.

Many of the streets surrounding the stadium are residential. Supporters are welcome to use the free Park and Ride or Park and Walk services. 

The Park and Ride scheme runs from the Sunderland Enterprise Pk on the Wessington Way (A1231) which is easily accessible from the A19 and clearly signposted "Park and Ride". The pick-up points from Enterprise Park are the permanent bus stops, while pick-up points from the stadium are to the north on Keir Hardie Way.

The Park and Walk scheme operates from two sites at the University of Sunderland - the A183 (Chester Rd) and St Peters, both are clearly signposted, follow signs for Matchday Parking.

Bus Routes
Bus numbers 2, 3, 4, 12, 13, 15 and 16 all stop within a few minutes walk of the stadium.

Train services
Sunderland station is approximately 1.5 miles (10 to 15 minute walk) from The Stadium of Light. For information on scheduled services please contact National Rail Enquiries on 08457 484950.

Arsenal Travel did make enquiries for a chartered train as we are aware that the last scheduled service departs before the end of the game. However, due to planned engineering works on the North East line that weekend, this was not possible.

By Metro
Supporters have the choice of arriving at either St Peters or the Stadium of Light. Supporters travelling towards Newcastle must board at the Stadium of Light station.
