England to Play a Home Friendly Away From Wembley

Recommended Posts

Costa Rica at Elland Road on 7th June. Also, Nigeria at Wembley on 2nd June.

They've got a Central American and an African side in the World Cup so they're playing a Central American side and an African side as a warm up. Seems logical, if a little dull.

Brilliant idea!

there are lots of benefits to a national stadium but touring your country with the national team is the best bet. It’s no wonder many northern fans have traditionally disassociated themselves with England.

Bla Bla Bla, try taking real fixtures around the country rather than always hosting them in a souless bowl in a grim city.

about time. maybe there'll be some atmosphere for an England friendly now in a stadium like Elland Road.

Thought I’d look at this because I’ve never done Elland Road, but it’s a Thursday night. Just like games held at Wembley, you’ve disengaged from the half the country by holding the game on a work night. Plus, kids are still at school, so they can’t really go either. 

The FA just never cease to amaze.

you'd hope/think there'd be some local initiatives to get the kids going to games. Maybe cheaper tickets.

There's a family section at Wembley for England games, I'm sure they'll do similar for this.

Leeds is a good choice as from observation on the whole they seem to be the most pro-England city, probably in the country.

It's good the FA are looking at hosting matches up north, we need as much practice as possible in places that backwards in preparation for Russia.
