The Club is delighted to confirm that Premier League neighbours Sunderland will visit Victoria Park for a pre-season friendly in July.
Craig Hignett’s men will host The Black Cats on Wednesday 20th July (7.30pm kick-off) as part of their preparations for the new campaign.
It will be the third time in five years that Sunderland have provided our opposition at The Vic during pre-season, with the most recent visit being their 3-0 win in July 2014.
The friendly is the second confirmed by Pools for pre-season after it was announced that the team would travel to Salford City on Tuesday 26th July (7.30pm kick-off).
Ticket details for our friendly games will be confirmed in due course.
