England game to be staged at the Lane

Last updated : 07 October 2008 By Jamie Furniss

Stuart Pearce who named Premier league stars like Gabby Agbonlahor and James Milner will bring his set of un-experienced set of lads to the city which is the home of football.

Obviously, Sheffield FC is the oldest Football Club in the world, so to see England Internationals at the Lane is one further step into a bright future for the soon to be extended stadium in the heart of Sheffield.

The Kop and the Valad Stand will both be added with a few thousand extra seats to raise the capacity to 40,000 in the next few years. And it doesn't end there as Chairman Kevin McCabe plans to get Bramall Lane on the shortlist of grounds if England win their bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm and tickets are priced at £10 adults and £5 concessions. The game will commence on Tuesday 18th November.

Sheffield United Chairman Kevin McCabe said: "We are delighted to host such an attractive fixture and to bring International competition to the city that gave birth to the global game.

"Sheffield not only boasts the oldest football ground in the world, but Sheffield United has in Bramall Lane developed a modern stadium that is well equipped to stage top level domestic and International fixtures."
