The Stadium of Light will again play host to family fun day next month.

Fans can join Samson and Delilah as the Stadium of Light is transformed into a fun size fairground, from dodgems to duck ‘n’ dive and balloon artists to bouncy castles.

As well as the fairground classics, visitors will also be entertained by a magician, meet their favourite princesses and can pick up some skills from a professional football freestyler.

There will as always be plenty of football activities too, hosted by the Foundation of Light’s top coaches, this includes little dribblers, the speed cage, small sided games and skills and drills, with the chance to win some top prizes.

Visitors can also see behind the scenes at the Stadium of Light in a special stadium tour, with the chance to walk out of the tunnel like a real Black Cat and sit in the head coach’s dug out.

The fun will kick off at 1.30pm on Saturday, July 2, and after the success of previous Junior Black Cats sell-out events, demand for tickets is expected to be high.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at £7.50 per person, and can be purchased at the Stadium of Light ticket office or by calling 0871 911 1973.

Parents and guardians can sign up young fans aged 16 and under to Sunderland AFC’s junior supporters club, the Junior Black Cats, for free at

Members can keep up to date with Samson and Delilah’s latest events and also have the opportunity to be chosen as a matchday mascot.
