Alex Neil’s side reached the play-off final after overcoming Sheffield Wednesday in the semi-finals.
Sunderland have endured much frustration at Wembley in the past – they lost eight games in succession at the famous venue before defeating Lincoln City on penalties in the Papa John’s Trophy final in 2021. However, due to Covid regulations supporters were not able to attend that fixture.
Neil, who took over as Sunderland boss in February, will hope that his team’s excellent support will help them to prevail at Wembley.
