SKIPPER: ENGLAND GAME IS BIG COUP

11 October 2013

Carlos and Blues to watch U21s at Portman Road with tickets selling well

Tickets are selling well for England’s visit to Portman Road next week when the U21s take on Lithuania. 

Gareth Southgate brings his side to the home of the Blues on Tuesday, October 15 with a 6pm kick-off in the first international to be played at the Club since England U21s’ 2-2 draw against Moldova in August 2006. 

More than 13,000 tickets have already been snapped up and with supporters purchasing on the day, a good crowd is expected. 

Many of the Town players are expected to be among the crowd with Blues’ skipper Carlos Edwards telling the Club website: “It’s a big coup for the Club to host an England game. 

“I’m sure a lot of the lads will be going along to watch and show their support to the Club in being the venue for an England international.”

Portman Road and Sir Alf Ramsey Way will be closed between 4.15pm and 8.15pm on the day. Supporters are advised to arrive early as there will be increased traffic congestion in the area. 

Fans will be able to watch the England v Poland World Cup decider after the U21s has finished in Legends, with kick-off at Wembley at 8pm.
