Sunderland AFC, the six-time champions of England’s First Division (the precursor to the Premier League) and two-time FA Cup champions whose 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons were chronicled in the Netflix documentary Sunderland ‘Til I Die, is coming to WakeMed Soccer Park.
Starring US Men’s National Team defender Lynden Gooch, Sunderland currently plays in England’s SkyBet EFL Championship, and is in the thick of the race for a playoff spot that could see them promoted back to the Premier League for the 2023-24 season.
The Black Cats will be the third English side to visit in recent years, after NCFC shared the spoils with West Ham United in front of a record-breaking crowd of 10,125 in 2016, before holding Swansea City to a draw in 2017.
