Date and time of Tyne-Wear derby confirmed
Unexpectedly, the game has not been selected for live television coverage by either Sky or BT Sport.
The police insist the game has a lunch-time kick-off, and the two clubs have agreed on a Saturday fixture rather than putting the match back to the Sunday.
Both clubs will issue updated ticketing details for the game in due course.
