Accrington Stanley will welcome Sunderland to the Wham Stadium in a pre-season friendly on Saturday 23rd July, 3pm kick-off.
The Black Cats, who drew 1-1 at the Wham in January, achieved promotion from Sky Bet League One after defeating Wycombe Wanderers in last month's Play-Off final at Wembley Stadium.
A 79th-minute strike from Ross Stewart sealed the 2-0 victory for Alex Neil's side, with the Irvine-born striker having already scored an impressive 25 goals during the 2021/22 campaign.
