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

Can I stream Morecambe vs Sunderland online?

According to club officials, Sunderland fans won’t be able to stream the game.

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 Morecambe vs Sunderland?

Is there any team news ahead of Morecambe vs Sunderland?

Alex Pritchard featured off the bench against Rotherham United on Tuesday following an injury.

Pritchard has been an immensely influential figure since Neil took charge in February but missed out against Oxford.

Sunderland are awaiting the results of a scan on Carl Winchester’s groin after the Northern Ireland man came off in the first half against Cambridge United last Saturday.

Dennis Cirkin also remains out with an injury but Neil remains hopeful that the defender could feature for Sunderland if they make the play-offs at the end of the season.
