Pompey’s league trip to Sunderland has been selected for live television coverage.
The Stadium of Light contest will remain on Saturday, August 17, but now kick-off at the earlier time of 12.30pm.
It will be the third time that Kenny Jackett’s side have made the long trip to face the Black Cats in the space of four months.
The teams faced off five times last season, with Sunderland coming out on top in the play-offs, but the Blues winning at Wembley in the Checkatrade Trophy final.
Ticket information for the latest fixture – which will be shown on Sky Sports – will be announced in due course.
The broadcaster has already decided to broadcast Pompey’s Carabao Cup clash with Birmingham earlier in the month.
