Report; Prior to the Watford game, Sunderland issues a statement following a significant power outage at Stadium of Light.

Despite a power outage at the Stadium of Light on Monday, Sunderland’s game against Watford will proceed as scheduled tonight.

Even though there was a significant power outage at the Stadium of Light just before the game, Sunderland’s home Championship match against Watford tonight is expected to proceed as scheduled. According to a statement from the Black Cats, the stadium experienced a power outage on Monday afternoon, and club personnel and partners have been working nonstop to guarantee that tonight’s game can go on as scheduled.

The match will begin at 7.45 p.m. as scheduled and will be broadcast on Sky Sports. However, the club has issued a warning that the aftermath of the power outage may have an impact on fans, particularly with regard to the availability of some refreshments at the concourse kiosks and also with longer-than-usual lines in some areas of the stadium.

Additionally, the club has been in touch with fans who purchased tickets for the Black Cats Bar, informing them that there won’t be any hot food available there and providing an alternative. The statement continued by thanking fans for their “in advance patience and understanding.”

The complete statement said: “Club employees and partners have worked around the clock to guarantee tonight’s match will go as scheduled after a significant power outage at the Stadium of Light on Monday afternoon. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause tonight’s matchday experience for the fans and ask for their patience and understanding.

Concourse kiosk disruptions could affect the availability of various refreshments and lengthen lines in some stadium locations. Attendees of the Black Cats Bar have also been contacted individually to inform them of the changes to their matchday experience, since hot food will no longer be offered there.

“We once again thank our hardworking club staff and partners for their efforts over the last 48 hours, and we continue to appreciate the understanding shown by our supporters,” the statement reads.

With a victory over the Hornets, Tony Mowbray’s team might move as close as one point closer to Preston North End, who are currently in third place in the Championship standings.
