Pirelli Stadium to host England Under-17 games against Italy and Portugal

Burton's Pirelli Stadium has been chosen to host two forthcoming England Under-17 matches.

Albion's ground will be the main venue for an international tournament, staging games against Italy on August 29 and Portugal on September 2.

In between, England take on Turkey at Northampton's Sixfields stadium with other games taking place at Hinckley's Greene King Stadium.

Burton chairman Ben Robinson said: "We are delighted to be once again hosting international football at the Pirelli Stadium with these two fantastic matches involving the England Under-17s.

"These matches will be a great opportunity for football fans from across our local area to see some of the stars of the future game and we expect both matches to be terrific events for all the family."
