Stags to host prestigious England U19s friendly

18th August 2017

Mansfield Town's One Call Stadium will host England men's Under 19s friendly against their German counterparts next month.

The Young Lions kick-off the new season preparing to defend their European Championships title, which they won in Georgia in July, with Paul Simpson, who led the Under 20s to the World Cup title in June, now at the helm as head coach.

England head to One Call Stadium for the friendly against the Germans on Tuesday 5th September, 7.45pm kick-off.

Back in 2012, One Call Stadium was the venue for an England Under 18s fixture against Italy, from which the Young Lions emerged 2-0 winners.

Stadium director Paul Broughton said: "We're incredibly proud to have been selected to host England's Under 19s in their first match since winning the European Championships this summer.

"This is the second time that One Call Stadium has been chosen as a venue for an England game in the last five years and we believe it typifies the recent growth of the club.

"Our relationship with The Football Association is ever-evolving and we hope to see it go from strength-to-strength in the future.

"The match will be a huge occasion for the Town and we hope the local community and football fans from further afield come out in force to support our country's future stars."

England's 2018 Under 19 Euro qualifying campaign starts in November when they face the Faroe Islands, Iceland and group qualifying hosts Bulgaria as they bid to reach next summer's finals in Finland.

Tickets for the fixture are priced as follows:

Adults: £3
Under 18s: £1.50
Seniors: £1.50
Groups of 15+: 50p per ticket

Charter standard clubs are eligible to receive 25 free tickets upon proof of registration.

Disabled supporters are required to purchase a ticket in the relevant age-related category with a carer free of charge.
