Lionesses to Play at Swindon Town

The road to France starts at Swindon Town where the Lionesses take on Spain on Tuesday 9th April 2019.

The Lionesses will visit the Energy Check County Ground as part of their preparation for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The fixture, against Spain, is to be played on Tuesday April 9th (KO 7pm) as part of Phil Neville’s squad’s ‘Road to France’ series as England look to build momentum ahead of the tournament this summer.

This is not the first time the Lionesses have visited SN1, however. Back in 2009, the national team faced Denmark, winning 1-0 in a friendly.

The Lionesses were last in action at the Energy Check County Ground in September 2013 when they defeated Slovenia 4-0 – Rachel Yankey, Ellen White and Rachel Williams were all on target.

Also on the scoresheet that day was England captain, Steph Houghton, who received her 100th England cap back in November and is set to feature again in the lead-up to the World Cup.

England’s preparations for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup will, in total, include four home internationals across the country, with kids’ tickets for each game priced at just £1.

Tickets are on sale now, priced at only £1 for concessions and £10 for adults – reduced to £7.50 if booked before 28 February. To book yours at the County Ground, visit their tickets page here.

Charter Standard Clubs can apply for tickets here.

Sunday 9 June (5pm BST): England v Scotland - Stade de Nice
Friday 14 June (8pm BST): England v Argentina – Stade Océane, Le Havre
