Sunderland fans urged to get tickets early to avoid delays at MK Dons match

Have your say

BLACK Cat fans are being urged to get their tickets in advance of tonight’s cup game to avoid queues and delays.

Sunderland’s Capital One Cup campaign begins tonight as the side take on Sky Bet League One side MK Dons at the Stadium of Light.

The ground’s ticket office will be open from 9am to allow people to collect their tickets.

Admission to the game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, is £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s and over 65s.

The club has said it advises people to buy or collect tickets in advance.

The ticket office and collection points are expected to be busy.

Season card holders who applied to join the Cup Scheme for the 2013-14 season will have had their card activated for the match.

Supporters are reminded the scheme does not run from season to season and a new direct debit mandate should have been completed in order to join.

Bosses have said in order to avoid any delays, supporters can take advantage of the club’s “print at home” facility, which is available for all games at the Stadium of Light.

It allows fans to book tickets online and print off a barcoded ticket, which is presented at the turnstiles in the same way as a standard ticket.
