The Potters - managed by former Magpies midfielder Michael O'Neill - will travel to St. James' Park on Saturday, 5th September for a 1pm (BST) kick-off.
Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic and the Government guidelines around it, spectators will not be able to attend the match. The game will not be broadcast live and there will be no stream available, but the goals will be available to watch as they go in on Newcastle United's official social media channels. There will also be regular updates on Twitter at @NUFC and highlights shortly after the match on NUFC TV.
