The Black Cats received an allocation of 1,079 tickets for the game at Highbury Stadium before tickets went on sale last week.

Sunderland have now confirmed the full away allocation has been snapped up.

The Wearsiders are yet to play Fleetwood this season after the fixture at the Stadium of Light, originally scheduled for October, was postponed due to international call-ups.
