Sunderland ‘Til I Die

The new standard for modern football documentaries, Sunderland ‘Til I Die gives viewers an insight into the going-ons behind the scenes at a football club.

Follow Sunderland players and staff on the rollercoaster journey that was their 2017/2018 season over 16 episodes, each coming in at around 40 minutes each.
