International football at the Pirelli

23 March 2013

The Pirelli Stadium hosts international football next week with Russia and Slovenia taking on hosts England in their crucial u17s Euro Elite Qualifying Round.

The Young Lions host opposition from Portugal, Russia and Slovenia for a place in May’s Euro Championship Finals in Slovakia; with the latter two matches taking place at the home of Burton Albion.

England kick-off their qualifiers against Portugal today before facing Russia this coming Monday, March 25th at the Pirelli Stadium; 7pm.

The final game against Slovenia takes place on Thursday 28 March; 3pm.

Tickets for the games against Russia and Slovenia can be purchased by calling the Burton Albion Ticket Office on 01283 565938 or by visiting the Club Shop at the Pirelli Stadium.  

With only one team from the four heading to the Finals, it’s an important stage for England who include four under-age players in the squad.

Tickets are priced at just £3 for Adults, with Over 65s/Under 16s £1.

Freddie Woodman, Joseph Gomez, Dan Crowley and Isaiah Brown are all eligible for next season’s U17 group, but Peacock has chosen to call upon them for the Elite Round.

He said: “We are now getting to the crucial end of the season, which we have all been preparing for. 

“The prize of reaching the UEFA U17 Finals is a significant one, with the top team here qualifying for this important event.”

Qualification for the Euro Finals will also provide an opportunity to seal a spot in the FIFA U17 World Cup, which is held in UAE later this year.
