The EFL has now announced the fixtures for the 2020/21 Season and Sunderland’s can be seen in full at :
The first three fixtures will be behind closed doors but there is potentially a bonus for London Branch members in the away game against Charlton on Saturday 3rd October.
If the Government allow stadia to open to reduced capacities in October then this could be the first game when fans are able to watch the team live. This will of course depend on the arrangements Charlton are able to agree with their local Licensing Committee and indeed whether, for safety and travel reasons, a proportion of away fans are included in their Covid-safe arrangements.
SAFC have had discussions with supporter representatives about opening up the Stadium of Light and further details on this, potentially for the home game on 10th October, will be announced when available.
