Sunderland Odds

Sunderland survival odds are popular to bet on at the start and throughout the season. Recent campaigns have seen Sunderland struggle in the Premier League, with them flirting with relegation a number of times. Odds on Sunderland to be relegated are popular, equally odds on Sunderland to stay up can offer value.

Even odds on Sunderland to win the Premier League 2017 are available. After Leicester City’s shock title win, with the Foxes priced at 5000/1 before the season began, punters are looking for similar odds that could provide similar shocking outcomes.

Sunderland transfer odds are also commonly bet on. With Sunderland struggling of late, they’ve turned to the transfer market on numerous occasions to bolster their squad and improve their chances of survival.

Odds on the Sunderland manager are another popular choice. These markets can range on when the Sunderland manager will be sacked, or the next Sunderland manager odds.

It’s been decades since Sunderland last won a major trophy, but odds on Sunderland to win the FA Cup for example are sometimes bet on. Again, this is for punters who are looking for longer odds bets, and with the Cup competitions having a history of providing shocks, odds such as these are considered.

History

Sunderland A.F.C are a professional football team currently playing in the Premier League. Sunderland are one of England’s most successful League and Cup sides, they are currently playing in their tenth consecutive Premier League season.

The history of Sunderland AFC begins in 1879. James Allan founded a football team and named it Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C. The club joined the Football League for its 1890/1891 season and the end of the century saw a successful time for Sunderland.

The club won its first league title in the 1891/1892 season, and went on to defend their title successfully by winning it again the following season. A second place finish in the 1893/1894 season was followed by another title win. 

During this period, Sunderland became the first side to score over 100 goals in a single season, and Johnny Campbell scored over 30 goals two seasons running.

For the 1898/1899 season, the club moved to Roker Park, which was to remain the home of Sunderland until 1997. 

Another second spot finish was earned in the 1900/1901 season before Sunderland earned their fourth First Division title the following season.

Over the next few years, Sunderland remained a competitive First Division side. The 1912/1913 season saw the club win a fifth title, and Sunderland almost completed the double, narrowly beaten by Aston Villa in the FA Cup Final.

The football calendar was suspended for the duration of the First World War. When the Football League resumed, Sunderland continued to challenge for honours. The club finished second or third in four of the five seasons between 1922 and 1927. However Sunderland had to wait until the 1936/1937 season to pick up their sixth First Division title.

Sunderland followed their sixth league championship with their first FA Cup, before the start of the Second World War suspended the Football League calendar once again.

When football returned, Sunderland spent a huge amount of money on new players and staff. Designed to give the club extra impetus as it went on the hunt for more trophies and glory, instead the club went in the other direction. In the 1958/1959 season, Sunderland were relegated for the first time in their history.

Financial scandal hit the club before the club suffered relegation, with the chairman and directors found guilty of making illegal payments to players. 

Sunderland’s break from First Division football only lasted six years. After two consecutive third place finishes, the club finally achieved promotion in the 1963/1964 season.

This era at Sunderland was the start of them moving up and down through the English Leagues, something that has lasted to this day.

The club struggled upon its return to the First Division and six years after promotion the club were relegated back to the second tier. However, three seasons later, Sunderland won their second FA Cup, beating Leeds United 1-0. This FA Cup win is the last time Sunderland have won a major competition to date.

Winning the FA Cup also gave Sunderland the opportunity to play in European competition. The club had qualified for the European Cup Winner’s Cup, but were knocked out by Sporting Lisbon in the second round.

A promotion in the 1974/1975 season was followed by immediate relegation. Three seasons later, and the club won promotion again, and this time it lasted a little longer. However six seasons later, and once again Sunderland suffered relegation.

Things went from bad to worse for Sunderland. A narrow relegation escape in the 1985/1986 season wasn’t a good enough warning for the club, and in the 1986/1987 campaign relegation struck once more. Sunderland lost a promotion/relegation play-off against Gillingham, and the club found itself in the Third Division for the first time in its history.

A new chairman and manager took over the club, and with it a strange promotion followed. Sunderland had faced Swindon Town in the play-offs, which Swindon won. However, due to Swindon’s financial situation, the Football League blocked their promotion and gave their place to Sunderland.

Another promotion followed two years later, and Sunderland found themselves back in the top flight.

However, yet again Sunderland couldn’t beat the drop. Four more years of second tier (now known as Division One after the creation of the Premier League) football followed.

Peter Reid was given the manager’s job, and he proved to be an instant success. The club were promoted in the 1995/1996 season and enjoyed their first season in the Premier Legue.

Although, there wasn’t too much too enjoy. The club were relegated and faced an instant return to Division One.

In 1997, Sunderland left the ground it had called home for 99 years. The club relocated to the Stadium of Light, and a record breaking season lifted the spirits of the Sunderland squad. Sunderland became Division One championships, earning a record 105 points that season.

Their return to Premier League action only lasted for three seasons. The 2005 /2006 season saw the club relegated once more, However, Sunderland bounced back at first attempt and have remained in the Premier League ever since.

Crest

The original Sunderland AFC crest featured a ship, a black cat on a football on a shield shape with a background of red and white to represent the Sunderland kit.

The badge was altered slightly, but the images of the ship and the football remained, along with the red and white stripes.

For their move from Roker Park to the Stadium of Light, the club commissioned a new Sunderland football crest to be designed. This new crest still features the shield shape, but this time it’s quartered. Each quarter contains an image to represent the history of Sunderland and its surrounding areas.

Penshaw Monument and Wearmouth Bridge are both depicted. A colliery wheel is used to symbolise the mining history of the area. The badge also features the black cats of Sunderland, and is completed by the club motto Consectatio Excellentiae, which means ‘in pursuit of excellence’.

Sunderland football colours are famous for being red and white stripes. Sunderland have worn red and white striped shirts for most of its history.

Recently worn with black shorts and black socks, earlier versions include white shorts and black socks, until 1997 and every kits since then has been the standard Sunderland kit.

Sunderland’s original kit was completely different. The first, featured from 1880 to 1884 was an all dark blue affair. The second kit, used immediately before the stripes were adopted, featured a red and white half shirt with dark blue shorts and dark socks.

Sunderland Stadium

The Sunderland stadium is called the Stadium of Light, the seventh ground to be used by Sunderland in its history.

The Sunderland AFC ground history began at Blue House Field, close to where the club was originally formed. The club then moved to Groves Field for a brief time, and then on to Horatio Street.

Abbs Field was the fourth location for a Sunderland stadium, and this was the first ground Sunderland were able to charge an admission fee for.

In 1886, the club moved to Newcastle Road. However, Sunderland quickly outgrew this ground and moved to Roker Park.

Roker Park was the home of Sunderland AFC for 99 years. In 2007, the club moved to its current stadium, the Stadium of Light.

When the stadium first opened, the Stadium of Light had a capacity of around 42,000. It was expanded in 2002, and so the current Sunderland stadium capacity is 49,000, becoming the sixth largest football ground in England.

The Sunderland stadium layout is based on a rectangular bowl. 

Supporters

Sunderland supporters traditionally hail from the surrounding areas, but there is also large global support for the club. There are a number of Sunderland supporters branches across the globe for fans to maintain strong links with the club.

One of the oldest Sunderland supporters clubs, the Sunderland AFC Supporters Association was set up in 1965. Its primary aim is to keep a two-way communication between the club and its fans, and make sure any issues are dealt with.

There is also a number of Sunderland supporters forums on the internet, with the better ones gaining thousands of members.

The Sunderland supporters nickname is the Mackems. The Mackems follow their team home and away, selling out their seat allocations the majority of the time.

Sunderland’s main rivals are Newcastle United. These two teams contest the Tyne-Wear derby. To a lesser extent, Sunderland also enjoy a rivalry with Middlesbrough, though this is nowhere near as fierce.

Ownership

The current Sunderland owner is Ellis Short. Short launched a takeover of the club in 2009, buying the club from the Drumaville Consortium, which had completed a takeover themselves only three years earlier.

The Drumaville Consortium was led by former player Niall Quinn, and even after Ellis Short acquired the club, Quinn stayed on as chairman.

Short replaced Quinn as chairman in 2011, with the latter moving to a new role of Director of International Development.

The Sunderland Board of Directors features Ellis Short (owner/chairman); Martin Bain (chief executive); Angela Lowes (finance director); Gary Hutchinson (commercial director) and Per Magnus Andersson (director).

Bob Kyle has managed the Sunderland side for more games than any other manager in Sunderland history. Kyle took charge of 817 games between 1905 and 1928, winning a First Division title along the way.

Tom Watson has the best games to wins ratio out of all Sunderland managers. Watson has a win percentage of 62.3%, after leading his side to victory in 119 of their 191 games with Watson in charge.

Out of all the Sunderland managers who managed the club for 20 games or more, Howard Wilkinson has the lowest win percentage. Taking charge of 27 matches from 2002 to 2003, Sunderland only enjoyed four victories, leaving Wilkinson with a win percentage of just 14.8%.
