Rent a Stadium of Light Parking Space
The Stadium of Light is one of the largest football stadiums in England and it has a capacity of 49,000. It has been the home of Sunderland AFC since 1997, when they moved from Roker Park football ground where they had played since 1897. It is to the south of the River Wear and it is a popular venue in the north east. The current owner of the stadium is Stewart Donald and he took over in 2018.
The name of the stadium is inspired by the historic links Sunderland has to the mining industry and the thousands of miners who spent their days underground before returning to the light in the evening. Sunderland AFC, often nicknamed The Black Cats, have won 6 league titles and 2 FA cups. Sunderland were once in the premier league but currently play in football league one.
The stadium is also an amazing venue for artists to play live and acts including: The Kings of Leon, Rihanna, Coldplay and Take That have all taken to the stage. In addition to this, the stadium also has excellent banqueting and conference facilities, making it more than just a place to watch football for 90 minutes.
Sunderland railway station is located roughly 15 minutes from the Stadium of Light and there is also the Stadium of Light metro station which connects to Newcastle. There is limited parking at the ground and a resident only parking scheme in effect in the immediate vicinity. This means it is easiest to secure your parking space in advance of arrival and is generally much quicker and cheaper than other alternatives. While there is a park and ride scheme, this can be off putting for some people who want to park closer to the stadium.
There is a Sunderland Fan Zone located at the Stadium of Light that features live music and food and drink outlets and this can get very busy with Sunderland supporters on match days. There are also a wide variety of pubs, bars, and restaurants in the city centre, should you wish to eat and drink. There are also some great attractions and things to do in the area such as Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens and the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art.

Latest Stadium of Light parking reviews
5 Stars because it all worked. Booked online, got tons of reminders by email. Got there, drove up to barrier, ticket came out, up went barrier. Left later, drove up to barrier, it opened, off I went. No trying to decipher parking charge machine and all that fiddle. Also much cheaper than paying at this Car Park. So Faultless. Hope the price thing remains and that it is not a Bait with later rises, we shall see but so far so good. Would use again and this looks like the shape of things to come.William
I have always been stupid enough to just go directly to the car parks and pay the price they offer. So when looking to see where the nearest car park is to the Royal Armouries this site came up offering a cheaper price than the car parks base rate. Booked the space just over 12 hours before I needed it, drove up the barrier, my reg plate was scanned fine, the ticket was printed before I came to a halt and put my window down. Found a space on the second floor, which never happens to me, and leaving was no problem, got to the barrier which raised before I got the chance to put the card in. Received email reminders after I booked my space throughout the evening and a reminder on the morning of when I had the space booked for. All in all a very good experience and I will be using again.Jonny
Perfect great little space in a secure location and not too far to walk into the centre. thanks!!Lisa
Easy to find. Easy to useKelly
Fantastic location right opposite arena where we were going....then short walk into all shops..great price for amount of time we spent in Leeds... Slight problem finding it and getting out from it but blaming satnav and hubby more than car park....Sally
CAR PARK WAS EASY TO FIND HOWEVER MY NUMBER PLATE WASN'T RECOGNISED BUT THE STAFF AT THE ENTRY WERE REALLY HELPFUL. THERE WERE PLENTY OF SPACES AND STAFF WERE IN ATTENDANCE WHEN WE LEFT AND AGAIN HELPED AT EXIT BARRIER WITH A SMILE.Doreen
Really simple and easy to use. Number plate recognition meant the ticket machine issued a ticket after recognising the car against the booking, then parked for the allotted time and left using number plate recognition again. Easy! Would definitely use againJames
Easy to find, no problems entering or leaving and literally 2 mins walk to first direct arenaAndree
I was very pleased with my parking. Booked on line and when i arrived i was given a ticket straight away to enter the car park and it was value for money. I will be driving to Leeds City Centre next Saturday and will be using this car park and i will definitely recommend it to family and friendsCatherine
