The Stadium of Light Metro station is a station on the Tyne and Wear Metro, situated to the north of the centre of the city of Sunderland, England. The station opened in 2002, as part of the extension of the Metro system into the city. It is named after the nearby Stadium of Light, the home stadium of Sunderland A.F.C., which is just a 10 min walk away.
From the opening of the Sunderland extension until December 2005, the station was on the Yellow line, so it was possible to travel between the Stadium of Light and St James, home of local rivals Newcastle United, without changing trains, but the journey involved a long detour via the coast.
