AMEX TO HOST ENGLAND U21s

2 October 2015



Brighton & Hove Albion's American Express Community Stadium will host England under-21s international with Switzerland next month.
 
Gareth Southgate's men face their Swiss counterparts in a Euro qualifier on Monday 16th November, kick-off 5.45pm - with full ticket and travel details to be announced next week.
 
Albion chief executive Paul Barber commented, "Hosting an England under-21 Euro qualifier is another great honour for our club and our stadium.

"We look forward to welcoming Gareth Southgate and his squad to the Amex next month for what is sure to be a very entertaining match against a Switzerland side who also got off to a winning start in group nine."
 
Southgate added, "It's likely to be a key game in the qualifying group for us and we're really looking forward to playing in Brighton.
 
"These early fixtures are all of real importance for us and after looking at videos of other matches in the group, this qualifying group is definitely tougher than last time. With the way we like to play and the pitch, set up and atmosphere at the Amex, it's one which we hope will suit us."

Tickets will be priced £10 for adults and £5 for concessions (under-18s, over-65s and students, on display of valid ID), family tickets (two adults, two children) £20. Group booking (15 or more), £5 adults and £2.50 children (under-18s).
 
The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport as part of the broadcaster's ongoing commitment to showcasing the England development teams.
 
Mark Sampson's women were the latest England team to visit the venue last year when they beat Montenegro by 9-0 in what was the head coach's first competitive game in charge of the Lionesses.
 
Southgate will be hoping England can continue their excellent record at the Amex. It has been a happy hunting ground, with the under-19s' beating Denmark by 1-0 there in 2011 and then the under-21s picking up a 4-0 win over Austria in March 2013.
 
Albion had three players named in Southgate's most-recent squad for the upcoming match against Kazakhstan, with Jake Forster-Caskey, Solly March and Christian Walton included.
 
They then travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina for their next match on Thursday 12th November, before the match at the Amex the following Monday.
 
The under-21s began their Euro campaign with a 1-0 win in Norway last month, and face Kazakhstan on Tuesday 13th October at Coventry City's Ricoh Arena.
