Boro will play Sunderland at the Riverside in the FA Cup third round.
We've been handed a home tie against our North East neighbours, who we last faced in this competition in 2012.
The sides have met already for the Tees-Wear derby this season, with Marcus Tavernier bagging the winner for Boro.
Boro reached the FA Cup quarter final last season, beating Sheffield Wednesday, Accrington Stanley and Oxford United before losing out to Manchester City at the Riverside.
Ties will be played on the weekend of Saturday January 6.
Ticket information will be available in due course.
