Description

Roker Park is now the home of Sunderland AFC's A-team. Roker Park was the home of Sunderland AFC from 1898 to 1997. It was the successor to a site on Newcastle Road that Sunderland occupied in the late 19th century but which had quickly become too small for the increasing crowds. A site was therefore selected for a new stadium and on the 10 September 1898, Roker Park officially opened with a match against Liverpool (1-0). Roker Park is now the home of Sunderland AFC's A-team. This stand could accommodate up to 36,000 people. Further developments to the ground were made in 1912 when the Roker End was concreted. About fifty thousand people could fit in the stadium at that time. In 1929 a new Main Stand, designed by Archibald Leitch, was built. This stand could accommodate up to thirty-six thousand people.

The new stand could seat 50,000 spectators and was officially opened by King George VI on 26th April 1938.

The ground was extensively renovated for the 1966 World Cup with seats being installed at the Clock Stand and a roof being added to The Fulwell End.

Despite making further improvements during the 1970s, the stadium gradually deteriorated and its capacity was severely reduced due to its proximity to housing. By its later years, it only had a capacity of 22,500.

Construction of the Stadium of Light began in 1996, and the stadium was completed in 1997. After it was completed, Roker Park was demolished and replaced by housing estates.

Even though I'm an Arsenal fan it left me with a soft spot for the club. I hope you stay up this year. PS, Charlie Hurley lives near me in Broxbourne. Small world eh?

I am an avid Portsmouth fan and remember going to Roker Park a couple of times in the 1980s and the Roker roar was special. It was a great atmosphere, and great memories.

Whenever life takes me, I always look for the match result every Saturday. Go boys!

No matter where life takes you, the first thing you do each Saturday is look for the football match result. Let's go lads!

I started working on the boys' gate number 32 in the Fulwell end, and I worked on the turnstiles for a few years before being asked to join the counting-house team. The counting-house was where turnstile operators reported after they were closed down and were told if they had the right total of cash according to the number on the turnstile clock, until Roker Park closed? So many happy times?.
