They are known as the 'Black Cats'; formerly they were the 'Rokerites' after Roker Park, which was their stadium from 1898 until 1997 or the 'Bank of England club' due to their prodigious spending on players in the first half of the 20th century. They have been the English champions six times, but the last time was 1936. They have also won the FA Cup twice, most famously as a Second Division club in 1973, when they beat the then-mighty Leeds United.

History

Sunderland A.F.C. was founded in 1879 under the name of 'Sunderland & District Teachers Association'. The team soon changed its name to Sunderland Association Football Club and began to recruit players who were not teachers. S.A.F.C. turned professional in 1885, the same year they recruited a number of Scotsmen, their first international players.

In 1887 the club was split in two due to the influx of paid professional players pushing the local men out of the first team. In protest over this many of the best local players left the club and formed their own team, Sunderland Albion F.C. A brief rivalry was begun, peaking in 1890 when The Football League promised admission for just one of the teams. A deciding playoff was held; SAFC won. Sunderland Albion remained an amateur club, and gradually faded into obscurity. Jump to: navigation, search 1887 is a common year starting on Saturday (click on link for calendar). ...

In the early years of the Football League SAFC were the most Northern top-flight team and often had to pay opposing teams' travel expenses. Over six seasons they lost only one home game and became the first side to win the league three times.


From 188698 SAFC's home was at Newcastle Road; ironically, Newcastle United are their main rivals. In 1898, the Club moved to what would become their long-standing home, Roker Park.

When the League restarted after World War II, Sunderland's fortunes took a turn for the worse, and in 1958 they were relegated from Division One for the first time. Sunderland's 68 unbroken years at the top flight was at the time a record in English football; since then, it has been surpassed by Arsenal with 79 seasons. In the following years they had several spells in the top flight, such as from 196470; however, they have yet to permanently regain their place in the foremost level of English football.

Sunderland reached their lowest ebb in 1987 when they suffered relegation to the Third Division for the first time in their history. Under their new manager Dennis Smith, promotion was gained at the first attempt and Sunderland went back up as champions in 1988. Two years later they reached the Second Division playoff final and lost to Swindon Town at Wembley, but were promoted a few weeks later in place of Swindon - who remained in the Second Division after admitting financial irregularities. Sunderland went back down after just one season in the First Division, and failed to get anywhere near the playoff zone in 1991-92. One small consolation was a run to the FA Cup final which ended in defeat to Liverpool. Smith quit as manager soon afterwards and was replaced by his assistant Malcolm Crosby, who in turn resigned after less than a year to be replaced by Terry Butcher. Before the end of 1993, Butcher's short-lived reign as manager came to an end and he was replaced by Mick Buxton. Buxton fared a little longer, being sacked in March 1995. At this stage, Sunderland were in real danger of relegation from Division One. The club's board turned to Peter Reid as manager and his target was simple - to keep Sunderland clear of relegation. That objective was achieved within weeks and he was rewarded with a permanent contract.


Peter Reid's first full season as Sunderland manager was a huge success. They cruised to the Division One title and gained promotion to the Premiership after five years in the league's second tier. But a shortage of goals sabotaged their chances of success during 1996-97, and they were relegated on the last day of the season. 1996-97 also marked the end of Sunderland's 99-year tenancy at Roker Park. That summer, the club relocated to the 42,000-seat Stadium of Light at Monkwearmouth - the largest club stadium to be built in England for more than 70 years. Its capacity has since been expanded to 49,000 seats and is currently the third largest club stadium in England.


The name "Stadium of Light" comes from the area's mining history. The name is a reference to a miner's lamp, recognising the fact that the stadium is built on top a coal mine, and that many thousands of Sunderland fans, past and present, have worked in the region's mines


Sunderland returned to the English Premiership in 1999/00, after cruising to an easy First Division championship in 1998/99 season with a record 105 league points. Over the next two seasons, Sunderland finished seventh — just missing out on a place in European competition both times. In 2001/02, however, the club barely escaped relegation, and in 2002/03 they finished dead last, with an English Premiership record low of 4 wins, 21 goals and 19 points. In addition, Sunderland soon found itself in debt for more than £35 million, and the club was forced to sell off most of its best players.

Trivia

  • As a result of Sunderland's somewhat unusual footballing history, the phrase "Doing a Sunderland" has been independently coined in many areas, often with wildly different meanings. "Doing a Sunderland" can refer to having an extremely good cup run (a reference to Sunderland's 1973 FA Cup win against Leeds), being relegated in a humiliating fashion (as when the club produced the worst performance in premiership history in 2003), or gaining promotion after a spectacularly successful season in a lower grade (as when Sunderland won the league with 105 points in 1999).

In more recent years, it has become the standard phrase to indicate a 2-1 victory for the visiting team at the Landfill (St James' Park).
