Sunderland vs Charlton Live Stream: Watch the League 1 play off final online

Sunderland vs Charlton: Where to live stream the League 1 play off final this Sunday

So will the second season of Sunderland ‘Til I Die end on a positive note, or will it be another crushing low? The Black Cats take on fellow fallen giants Charlton at Wembley Stadium today in the League 1 play off final, with a place in next season’s Championship at stake. Our quick guide reveals all you need to know to watch Sunderland vs Charlton online, including full live stream details and the kick-off time.

Both sets of supporters have been through a fair bit more than the average football fan, so it’s something of a shame that one side has to lose. Today’s clash is a repeat of the thrilling 1998 Division One play off final, which finished 4-4 and ended in glory for the Addicks after that Michael Gray penalty.

Sunderland, who have already experienced Wembley disappointment this season after their Checkatrade Trophy final defeat in March, had the edge over the South Londoners in the league, winning 2-1 on the opening day before holding Lee Bowyer’s men to a 1-1- draw at The Valley in January.

And there’ll be plenty of focus on Charlton forward Jonny Williams, who spent the majority of his brief Sunderland career in the treatment room, and was one of the central figures in the excellent Netflix documentary about the Wearside’s disastrous 2017/18 season.

Whichever side you’re on, there’s a huge amount on the line, and streaming it could barely be easier. Here’s how to do it.
