Celtic will travel to Sunderland next month to take part in the 20th anniversary celebrations of Sunderland's Stadium of Light.

The match, which will take place on Saturday July 29th, will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lisbon Lions, and former Sunderland captain Kevin Ball can't wait for the occasion.

The game will be Celtic's last pre-season friendly before the start of the league season, so you would imagine a strong side will play and a large number of Celtic fans will no doubt travel down. We'll have more on the game nearer the time, as will our mates at Roker Report.
