England v Japan today

26 June 2013

England take on Japan in an eagerly anticipated Women's International at the Pirelli Stadium this afternoon at 1:45pm.

Demand for the match has been extremely high with all seating now gone; however supporters can pay at the turnstiles in the East Stand.

The fixture is a final warm-up match, before Hope Powell and her England team fly to Sweden to take part in the UEFA 2013 European Championships.

It has been decided the Japan game will kick-off at 1.45pm, a time negotiated to both secure the fixture against the World Champions and to give students across England, the chance to see some of the world’s best female players in action.

To help mark a special year for The Football Association - the governing body’s 150th anniversary and 20 years since they took over the running of the women’s game, this match forms part of a number of unique events taking place. 

England Manager Hope Powell said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to play one of the best teams in the world and perfect for our preparations for the Euro’s. It is great to be able to open up this match to an audience who may not have experienced international football before. We are hoping that students across England will take up the chance to get free tickets and give us a tremendous send off to the Euro’s.”
