The 1973 FA Cup final was the most romantic and sensational final in what is now over 150 years of history of the world's oldest football competition. 73@fifty commemorates the golden jubilee of the fabulous day when Sunderland overcame the odds to defeat Leeds United at Wembley. 


During the season Bob Stokoe had become Sunderland manager and transformed a team struggling in the second tier to beat three of the highest ranked teams in the country to take the trophy.


Players from both Sunderland and all six of their opponents reflect on the magical journey of Stokoe’s Stars in a story told with a vast collection of photos, re-living all nine of the games of this greatest of cup runs.


With a Foreword from Bob Stokoe’s daughter Karen Craven and sections on what happened to Sunderland’s cup winners, including their award of the Freedom of the City of Sunderland, 73@fifty pays tribute to a team who are true legends in the history of SAFC.
