Sunderland AFC has issued advice to fans ahead of Saturday's game.

Ahead of the 2019/20 season start, Sunderland AFC has issued advice to supporters travelling to the ground by car for the team’s first match.

There is no off-street parking available around the stadium, the club said, and motorists wishing to use the green car park are advised that to arrive no later than 20 minutes before kick-off.

Supporters should no longer exit the Sheepfolds via Easington Street onto North Street by car. This is now a ‘no entry’ point for vehicles due to the completion of the North Bridge Street Road improvements.
