Sunderland AFC’s fixtures have been released for the new season
Written by Adam Wood on 21st June 2018
Jack Ross’ Sunderland will kick-off their 2018-19 Sky Bet League One campaign against Charlton Athletic at the Stadium of Light.
The first fixture has been selected for television broadcast and will be played on Saturday 4 August at 12.30pm at the Stadium of Light.
Charlton finished sixth in League One last term before being dealt play-off heartache when they lost out to Shrewsbury Town over the two-leg semi-final.
Following the lads’ season opener on home soil, an away trip to Luton Town is next on the list a week later.
Sunderland’s Carabao Cup tie with Sheffield Wednesday has been moved to Thursday 16 August (kick-off time remains the same) before the lad’s welcome Scunthorpe United two days later.
The festive period has served up a home double header with Ross’ side welcoming Bradford City to Wearside on Boxing Day before Shrewsbury Town provide the lads with their last test in 2018.
Sunderland will begin 2019 away at Blackpool before rounding off the campaign on Saturday 4 May at Southend United, kick-off 5.30pm.
