Home to Sunderland AFC since 1997, the 49,000 capacity Stadium of Light has become an established and instantly - recognisable part of the Barclays Premier League landscape.
Officially honoured at the Enjoy England Awards for Excellence as the North of England's finest commercial tourism venue, the stadium has established a tremendous reputation as a market leader in hospitality, testament to its purpose-built facilities and a dedicated team of expert event planners.
Each event planner, backed by graduates from the UK's largest and award-winning hospitality academy, is assigned to a specific account, handling the event management process from start to finish and ensuring the highest level of personal service. A range of incentives are also available throughout the year for our valued clients.
Add tailored menus from extensive food and beverages selections, space for up to 1,000 guests and excellent transport links and it's easy to see why the Stadium of Light truly is the most prestigious venue in the North East.
The Stadium of Light has an extensive range of flexible space that is ideal for conferences, exhibitions, meetings and training exercises.
Indoor or outdoor, one-to-one or a large scale national conference for 1,000 distinguished guests, the stadium can be as wonderfully intimate or as grand as you want it without losing that important personal touch.
We excel with those finer details, the small things that can really add value. A full audio-visual service, internet access, office facilities and a wide range of first class food and beverages - just some of the options available as we support you on your journey of success.
