This is an excellent stadium in the region of Sunderland. Staff were all friendly and attentive when I attended my girlfriend's graduation in July 2019. Food was brilliant also. I will be returning.

Came here for the Spice Girls show, which was amazing! The stadium itself is a great venue for concerts. There were a couple of people causing problems near us and security dealt with it really well. The staff we spoke to were really nice.
