Supporters are also asked to arrive earlier than normal, but there is a good reason for this,
Saturday is the last home match before 11/11 and is the day when the club will hold its annual Remembrance commemorations.
At 2.40pm, soldiers from the 5th Regiment Royal Artillery will undertake a parade around the Stadium of Light pitch and the club is asking as many supporters as possible to be in their seats to show their appreciation to the soldiers, many of whom are Sunderland fans.
The teams will then take to the field slightly earlier than usual, as Staff Sergeant Chris Gee from 5th Royal Artillery lays a poppy wreath in the centre-circle and players and supporters of both clubs gather to observe a traditional period of silence prior to kick off.
Supporters are also advised that concourse bars will close slightly earlier, in order for the silence to be observed in the appropriate manner.
Tickets for the match are still available starting at £7.50 for U16s and £20 for adults.
Cash turnstiles will also be open from 1.30pm (numbers 34-36 and 44-46).
