A lot of Sunderland fans are reacting to the latest news surrounding the club after the recent events that are impacting countries across the globe.
The club tweeted out an official statement, highlighting that the Academy of light will be closed until further notice, whilst the Stadium of Light box office and store will be closed for the foreseeable future from the 23rd March. Fans are unsure when football will return, with the earliest possible date being April fourth.
The statement has left some fans who had ordered items from the box office confused about if they will receive their order and many left questions in reply to the tweet. Other reactions were mixed, with one saying the club is an ‘Absolute embarrassment’.
Fans at Sunderland have had a hard few seasons on the pitch and the uncertainty around when they will be able to watch their team again is surely unwelcome.
Here’s what fans had to say about the statement:
📰 Due to the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus in the UK, #SAFC is set to introduce numerous operational changes with immediate effect, including the closure of the Academy of Light, @StadiumOfLight box office and club store.
