Carrow Road to host England Under-21s European qualifier

24 May 2018

England Under-21s will play their key 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier against Netherlands at Carrow Road on Thursday September 6 (7.45pm KO).

The Young Lions are currently top of Group 4 and in pole position to qualify for the finals in Italy next year.

Aidy Boothroyd's side are five points ahead of their Dutch visitors with four matches to play. The teams drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture in Doetinchem in September 2017 with Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the scoresheet for England.

Tickets are on sale now for the match priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children and over 65s.  A family ticket priced £20 (two adults and two children) is available and group booking and Charter Standard discounts apply. 

Tickets can be purchased online HERE, by calling 01603 721 902 or in person at the ticket offices at Castle Mall, Chapelfield or Carrow Road.

Please note family tickets are only available via phone or in person.  Details of hospitality packages will be announced in due course.

For those who wish to make groups booking or apply through the FA Charter Standard, forms can be found HERE.  Both forms need to be completed and returned to or in person to the ticket office at Carrow Road.

Head coach Boothroyd, who spent three years working at City's academy, said: “This match is a really important one in our aim to qualify for next summer’s Euros. Netherlands are a really strong side and it will be a tough and entertaining game.

“I loved my time at Norwich. I had three great years there, my daughter was born there and whenever I go back Delia [Smith, the club’s joint majority shareholder] and the rest of the directors are very welcoming to me and my family.

“It is a brilliant club in an amazing part of the country, with great supporters.  We hope they’ll come out in big numbers to get behind the team as we look to get all three points and work our way towards qualification.”

Norwich City Managing Director Steve Stone said: “We are delighted that Carrow Road has been chosen to host another England U21 international – and we very much look forward to welcoming The FA and their counterparts from Netherlands in what is an important qualifying match for both teams.”

The Young Lions last played at Carrow Road in September 2012, winning 1-0 against Serbia in the Euro 2013 play-off first leg, thanks to a goal from Craig Dawson.
