Norwich City’s under-18s are set for a taste of the big time after it was confirmed their upcoming FA Youth Cup tie will be played at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light stadium.

The young Canaries won 3-1 at Hull City in the third round last month to set up a clash with Sunderland’s U18s.

That fourth round tie has now been scheduled for Wednesday, January 13 (7pm kick-off) and will be played at the 49,000-capacity stadium.

Sunderland won 5-1 at Mansfield Town in the previous round to set up the clash with the Canaries, who beat Hull thanks to two goals from Benny Ashley-Seal and a third from Todd Cantwell.

That game was played at the home of North Ferriby United, the Eon Visual Media Stadium, which holds up to 2,700 people.

A trip to Middlesbrough or Tottenham Hotspur awaits in the fifth round for the victors. Graeme Murty’s team are looking to repeat the success of City’s U18 team of 2013, who lifted the trophy after beating Chelsea in the final.
