England Unveil 'Road To France' Series


England’s preparations for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup will include four home internationals across the country, with kids’ tickets for each game priced at just £1.

Phil Neville’s squad will prepare for the finals in France with two games in early April and a double-header just before the tournament, which begins in June.

The ‘Road to France Series’ will be played at four different venues, giving plenty of fans the chance to see the Lionesses up close before the big send-off at the American Express Community Stadium – home of Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion – on Saturday 1 June.

The Road to France Series comprises:

  • Friday 5 April (KO 7pm): England v Canada – Academy Stadium, Manchester City FC
  • Tuesday 9 April (KO 7pm): England v Spain – The Energy Check County Ground, Swindon Town FC
  • Saturday 25 May (KO 3pm): England v Denmark – Banks’s Stadium, Walsall FC
  • Saturday 1 June (KO 1pm): England v New Zealand American Express Community Stadium, Brighton & Hove Albion FC

Both of April’s opponents are also preparing for the World Cup finals. Ranked fifth in the world, Canada will provide a stern test in Manchester on Friday 5 April, before an emerging Spain side head to Swindon four days later.

UEFA EURO 2017 runners-up Denmark travel to Walsall on Saturday 25 May, while New Zealand – another World Cup-bound opponent – will ensure a tricky finale in Brighton a week later.

Tickets for all four games are on sale now, priced at only £1 for concessions and £10 for adults – reduced to £7.50 if booked before 28 February (Canada & Spain) and 10 March (Denmark & New Zealand). To buy, go to
