Welcome to Sunderland RCA

Sunderland RCA play at Sunderland LGV Park, Ryhope in the Ebac Northern League Division 1

We are pleased to announce that, despite the cost of living crisis, the price of admission at our home games for the 2022-23 season will remain the same as last season.

At Sunderland RCA we believe we offer the best value for money in the Ebac Northern League Division 1. The standard admission prices for highly competitive Northern League football are £6.00 Adults and £4.00 for Concessions. Non-standard prices may apply to particular games and will be announced in advance.

Season tickets prices for the 2022-23 season are £75 for Adults and £50 for Concessions. Note: Season tickets do not include any cup matches.

Sunderland RCA is a family friendly club: new fans and spectators are always welcome and entry for children accompanied by a responsible adult is free (except in FA competition matches) 

We are always looking for volunteers to help with match day preparations anyone who can give up a few hours during the week would be most welcome. There is always something that needs doing and a cup of tea from Defty's Diner awaits those who give up their free time. Anyone interested contact Secretary Rob Jones. 07932951842

Pre-season friendly - Brandon United

Saturday, 2 July 2022 - 3:00pm

Taylor Richardson on the attack during the second half at Brandon United.

RCA headed up the A690 to play Ebac Northern League Division Two side Brandon United in their first pre-season outing of the season.

Both teams had the usual selection problems, players still on holiday, new players recently signed and the smattering of "Trialists". 

Bright sunshine greeted the players along with a very blustery wind which blew across the wonderfully prepared Brandon pitch.
