Sunderland v Portsmouth, League One
Sunderland 2-1 Portsmouth, Stadium of Light, League One, 17/08/2019
A fan is reflected in a puddle approaching the Stadium of Light, which was built on the site of the former Monkwearmouth Colliery and replaced Roker Park as Sunderland’s home in 1997. Since then it has hosted league games in the top three tiers, as well as England matches.
Photo by Paul Thompson. “I like the rhythms and ritual of a match day. The fan walking towards the Stadium of Light has (to me) the look of a supplicant approaching a cathedral. More in hope than expectation maybe, but making the journey nevertheless.”
