Beacon of Light

Building a brighter future

The Beacon of Light will be vibrant and exciting education and sports facility and the first of its kind in the UK. It will use the power of football to inspire people and change lives. It will help people gain skills and qualifications and work with families and re-energise communities.

Complementing the neighbouring Stadium of Light, home of Sunderland AFC, and Aquatic Centre, this easily accessible venue will be an all-embracing community hub; a motivating facility providing opportunities for young people and their families.

Representing the next phase in our development, the building will become iconic across the region and the country.
