5 fanzones in Newcastle showing the Tyne-Wear Derby against Sunderland this weekend

The big day is nearly here.

After weeks of build up and some derby stories which will be told for years to come, the day is nearly here for Newcastle United and its fans - around 6,000 of whom will be travelling to Sunderland's Stadium of Light on Saturday for the first derby between the two clubs since early 2016.

The away end may be larger than many expected when the game was initially drawn as part the FA Cup third round draw, but plenty of fans will need to watch the game from Tyneside, being unable to make the short trip to Sunderland.
