SUNDERLAND fans dreaming of the club's first silverware in 40 years can secure their ticket for the League Cup Final from today (Monday, February 3).

Season card holders with one or more loyalty points for attending away games can buy one ticket each for the Capital One Cup final against Chelsea from 9am today (Monday, February 3) until noon on Saturday (February 8).

All such fans are guaranteed a ticket.

Those with season cards, but no loyalty points, will be able to apply for one ticket per season card from 9am next Monday (February 10), until noon on Saturday, February 15.

Anyone eligible for a phase one ticket who wants to sit with someone applying in phase two is advised to wait until the second phase.

Should any tickets be left by February 15, a further announcement will be made.

The match takes place at Wembley on Sunday, March 2, at 2pm.

Sunderland have been allocated Wembley's east end. Tickets are priced 40 to 100 for adults and 20 to 50 for under 16s and over 65s.
