Thousands of Sunderland fans plan to turn Trafalgar Square red and white on Saturday March 1 before the Capital One Cup Final.

Supporters are organising a huge pre-final party at the famous square in London, which is home to the statue of famous Bishopwearmouth-born general Sir Henry Havelock.

Almost 2000 fans have already signed up for the Facebook-organised event.

A Love Supreme have already filled 26 buses travelling to London for the match at Wembley on March 2, continuing their long standing tradition of taking SAFC fans to every single away game that Sunderland play.

However A Love Supreme still have plenty of seats for £38 each; you can book here.

They also offer a hotel package leaving from Sunderland on the Saturday and staying in a four star, central-London hotel before taking fans to the match and back home to celebrate; you can book a hotel package here.

Black Cats fans also invaded Trafalgar Square before the play off final against Charlton in 1998.
