Myself and my family had a fantastic day at the Stadium of Light on Sunday (19th May).

To play at the Stadium, to Captain the team, to score on the pitch and to beat Newcastle was all just amazing!

History & Background

Our 1st ever Tyne-Wear Derby was played at The Stadium of Light on Sun 19th May 2019, with the match giving fans of Sunderland and Newcastle United the unique opportunity to pull on their club's shirt and play against their biggest rivals!

The game was keenly contested, but played in a great spirit throughout and it was the Home fans who had the most to cheer after witnessing a comfortable win for Darren Holloway's Sunderland team in the glorious morning sunshine.

Due to the huge success of this year's game we're hoping to arrange another Tyne-Wear Derby game in Football Aid 2020.




Football Aid could certainly be described as a game of two halves. On one side we’re fulfilling fans’ lifelong ambitions to grace the hallowed turf at the club they support. At the same time, we’ve raised significant funds for a host of charity and community projects on a regional, national and international scale. This perfect balance is changing lives, making dreams come true and benefiting the beautiful game.
