Club statement: Coventry City

Sunderland AFC is extremely disappointed by the conduct of a small minority of visiting supporters during the Club’s fixture against Coventry City.

Several incidents have been reported by fans of both Clubs following Sunday’s match, with objects including pyrotechnics, bottles and coins allegedly thrown towards home supporters located in the North Stand.

Investigations by Northumbria Police and West Midlands Police are ongoing to identify the persons responsible and SAFC is currently in dialogue with supporters’ groups to ensure appropriate preventative measures are put in place.

The Club sincerely apologises to any supporters – home or away – impacted by this completely unacceptable behaviour and assures them that it will not be tolerated at the Stadium of Light.
