Watch Sunderland as they won the FA Cup in 1973 ‘live’ exactly as it was 50 years ago. That tackle, the goal and the save all exactly 50 years since they happened. A must see for those who were there or watched the game on TV as well as a younger generation who can experience the joy of watching their team win a major trophy. Shown on a big screen in the auditorium, you’ll be able to relive every moment with fellow fans. All proceeds from the event will support The Fans Museum in their work to support health and education for local people.
Before the game, you can soak up the atmosphere, have a drink, something to eat and browse some of The Fans Museum exhibits-they have 5,000 articles alone relating to that final! Pre match entertainment starts at 1.30 with songs, video clips and interviews before Abide with Me at 2.45. The game will kick off at 3pm after the players’ presentation with a ten-minute break for half time as per 1973! Watch the seconds wind down at the end before the presentation of the FA Cup to the winning team.
Early booking is advised as these will go quickly.
All proceeds will go towards the Fans Museum to enable them to continue to travel the region with their unique outreach programmes. The Fans Museum based in Sunderland offers an experience like no other, being the only museum of its kind. The extensive collection captures over 138 years of football from not only the City of Sunderland but across the world, with some of the most iconic names to “boot”. Not only is the Museum an interactive one, which allows all visitors to wear and hold the prestigious and priceless items, it uses these items to engage to support so many aspects of Health & Education. The museum will have a merchandise stall set up, selling original items from 1973 cup run, along with Limited Edition items of that special day.
