What TV channel is Gillingham vs Sunderland on?

The clash between Sunderland and Gillingham won’t be shown on any television channels.

Can I stream Gillingham vs Sunderland online?

Unlike the midweek game against Manchester United U21s, Sunderland’s clash with Gillingham won’t be streamed in the United Kingdom.

Although the EFL have confirmed that they will return to their pre-COVID-19 position on streaming games this season.

That means Sunderland fans in the UK will not be able to stream games that take place between 2:45 and 5:15 on a Saturday afternoon.

Only fans overseas will be able to stream those games, provided that they have not been selected for international television broadcast in a territory that has an overseas broadcast partner.

However, the EFL have also confirmed that clubs will be able to offer a streaming service to UK supporters for any games that take place outside of that Saturday window.

That means that all midweek games not selected for TV can be streamed, as well as matches moved from their Saturday slot for non-TV purposes.

Games that take place on a bank holiday can be streamed, and all Papa John's Trophy games up until the semi-final can be streamed.

Are there any other ways I can follow Gillingham vs Sunderland?

BBC Radio Newcastle will provide full match commentary.
