England U-21s to return to Ricoh Arena in October.

The FAThe England U-21s will return to The Ricoh Arena for their third visit to the ground next month as they take on Kazakhstan in their first 2017 European Championship Qualifier.

The Three Lions first visited The Ricoh Arena in 2006, where a Leighton Baines thunderbolt was enough to defeat Germany 1-0, before they returned in 2009 and defeated Macedonia 6-3.

The European Championship will take place in Poland in 2017, and Gareth Southgate will be looking to get off to a winning start in Coventry.

Speaking to TheFA.com, Southgate said; “It’s great to take the junior national teams to a Football League ground.

“It’s a fantastic stadium and they create a really good atmosphere, so hopefully we can contribute to that with a good performance in October.

“Hopefully, the squad that we’ll be naming over the next couple of months will be an exciting one for people to come and watch.

“And it’s a chance for those fans who don’t get to see us play at Wembley to see an England side in action at their home ground.”

England have been drawn out in their qualifying group with Norway, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Switzerland and Kazakhstan and start their campaign against Norway in Drammen on Monday 7 September.

Tickets are priced at £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and a £20 family ticket for two adults and two children, will go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 26 August, via ricoharena.com or by calling 024 7678 6411.

Coventry City season ticket holders will also be able to take advantage of two-for-one tickets.

There are also group bookings for 15 people or more (no age restrictions and bookable in advance only) priced at £5 for adults and £2.50 for concessions.

Disabled supporters will pay the full price according to their age category with their carer going free and for Charter Standard Clubs there are up to 25 complimentary tickets available on proof of membership with any additional uptake at the group rate.

The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport as part of the broadcaster’s ongoing commitment to showcasing the England development teams.
