Sunderland’s home ground is “Stadium of Light” which is having a capacity of more then 48k spectators. Long term rivalry with Newcastle United F.C have produced some beautiful and tense games as these both teams compete every year in a Tyne-Wear Derby.

The greatest expense Sunderland have gotten for a player delivered by the Sunderland Football academy is almost 20 million euros for Jordan Henderson, who moved to Liverpool on July 9th, 2011. The greatest exchange expense paid via Sunderland is the consequent 16 million euros after additional items for Bent, who was purchased from Tottenham Hotspur in July 2009. Now you know all about updated salaries of Sunderland AFC squad.

Conclusion:

Club spent 84 seasons in Level 1 of football season, 29 in level 2 and 1 in level 3. This club almost never had a strong run for full season. I believe that club is a very good competitive mid-table side which can further go on in Premier League to challenge for top 6 spots if more investment in positive and development is focused in future.
