The 1,805 Sunderland fans who have made the long journey to the Boleyn Ground will be given a free Green Sunderland shirt today at West Ham.
Sunderland fans have already benefited from the kids for a quid deal with £1 tickets for under 16s, whilst over 65s tickets paid £25 and adults at £43 to visit the Boleyn Ground for their last time today.
Sunderland’s official site said “To thank their fan for such tremendous backing, every Sunderland fan at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday will be given a 2015-16 away shirt courtesy of Sunderland AFC, with club staff inside the ground handing out the vibrant green away shirts to fans as they arrive.In order to ensure that every fan receives their shirt, the club is asking supporters to arrive at the ground as early as possible on the morning of game, with turnstiles open from 11.15am for the 12.45pm kick off. Supporters are also asked to take their seats slightly earlier than usual, ensuring that that they are wearing their shirts, so that a photograph can be taken of the whole away end just before kick-off.”
It appears the away end in Sir Trevor Brooking lower will be a sea of green, let’s hope they green with sickness or jealously when the final whistle blows.
