Young Black Cats to head to East Anglia.
Sunderland will kick off their FA Youth Cup challenge with an away tie at Ipswich Town next month.
The club’s under-18s were paired with the Tractor Boys in Friday’s draw with both sides entering the competition at the third-round stage.
The young Black Cats were beaten at the third-round stage last year, suffering a 3-1 defeat at the hands of a strong Manchester City side at Stockport County’s Edgeley Park.
A date for the game has yet to be confirmed.
