SAFC vs. Burton Albion Fan Zone at the Beacon of Light
The Beacon of Light’s popular Fan Zone will return tomorrow when Sunderland AFC host Burton Albion in Sky Bet League One.
Last season, thousands of fans streamed through the Beacon’s doors to soak up the pre-match atmosphere making it the number one spot for pre-match entertainment, with a host of activities planned throughout the countdown to kick-off.
Tuesday night’s Fan Zone will once again be the hosted by Frankie Francis, and will be open from 5.30pm, with live music kicking things off before the Wise Men Say Podcast take centre stage for a live Q&A.
Black Cats past and present will also be in attendance, with former player Stephen Elliot following the first-team players onto the Fan Zone stage.
Foundation of Light’s Commercial Director and General Manager, Phil King, said: “The Beacon of Light’s Fan Zones were really popular with supporters of all ages last season.
“We are looking forward to opening our doors to supporters once again, and we have a wide range of pre-match activities planned to provide pre-match entertainment for all the family.
“From podcasts and players to live music, it’s great to see all elements of the SAFC family coming together on what promises to be another exciting matchday at the Stadium of Light.”
There will be a range of locally produced food on offer from the Beacon of Light’s café and supporters will be also able to purchase alcoholic and soft drinks on site.
