40k On Boxing Day

Charlie Methven has laid down another of his attendance challenges and he’s hoping we can pull in 40,000 when we face Bradford City on Boxing Day. Methven said: “Historically the Stadium of Light has enjoyed big crowds on Boxing Day as fans from further afield return home for Christmas. Our home attendance this season is currently averaging about 30,000. That is by far the highest in the league and would actually put us ahead of almost all the Championship clubs and about half of the Premier League. That is phenomenal and shows the fans’ real passion for this brilliant club. Stewart, Juan and I want us all to raise the roof on Boxing Day and make it a match to remember. The lads are pushing hard towards the top of the league, but they need as much support as possible if we are all to achieve our objective of promotion. Be there on Boxing Day to show that we are all in this together and to put a marker down to the rest of the country that SAFC is back.”
