The Stadium of Light, Sunderland Events

Home stadium to Sunderland AFC, the Stadium of Light opened in 1997 and has a seated capacity of 49,000. Not just a football venue, the Stadium also hosts high profile concerts, in the past welcoming Rihanna, Take That, Kings of Leon, Pink and One Direction. There are also regular events in the Stadium's many luxurious hospitality suites from Champagne gourmet evenings to fashion shows. For the first time ever, delegates and party-goers will be able to supplement their SOL experience with a truly luxurious overnight stay, with guests spending a night in the stunning 141-bedroom Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, located adjacent to the Stadium of Light itself and a short walk from its sister venue, the National Glass Centre.
