SUNDERLAND’S opening home game of the season – the Wear-Tyne derby against Newcastle United – has not been selected for TV broadcast.

Broadcasters Sky and ESPN both overlooked the derby, so it remains on Saturday, August 20, but will kick off at noon.

The Black Cats will release ticket details soon.
