Sunderland have sold 33,371 season tickets for the 2023-24 campaign - with 17 days to go until their first match against Ipswich Town at the Stadium of Light on August 6.
Season tickets went back on a month ago, following the club’s early bird offer, with 37,692 seats made available in total.
As of 11:30am on Thursday, July 20, the club had sold 33,371 season tickets as they prepare for a second consecutive year in the Championship. That means that 88.54 per cent of season tickets available have been sold.
Adult season tickets can be bought from £420, with under-16s priced from £55. Over-65s season tickets are available from £290, with under-22s and under-18s available from £180 and £105 respectively. Season tickets can be purchased via the club’s website.
Sunderland’s average attendance at the Stadium of Light for the 2022-23 season was 39,328 - the highest in the Championship by some distance. A sell-out crowd of 46,060 then attended the first leg of the side’s play-off semi-final against Luton last month.
