The Tyne–Tees derby is a term which is often applied to football matches between Newcastle United and Middlesbrough. The two towns are separated by just 34 miles, in a region where there are only 3 major professional football clubs. It can also include a match between any of the two clubs and Hartlepool United.

The derby had increased importance in the late 1990s and early 2000s, as the only North-East derby of the season, since at the time Newcastle United and Middlesbrough were Premier League teams (while Sunderland was largely outside the top flight at the time). Both teams enjoyed a degree of success in this period: Newcastle qualified in for the Champions League and challenged for the Premier League title. Middlesbrough, with high-profile players including Juninho, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Mark Viduka, reached 4 domestic cup finals, winning the 2004 League Cup and reaching the 2006 UEFA Cup Final.

Middlesbrough play their home games at the Riverside Stadium, while Newcastle United play their home games at St. James' Park.
