England men's under-21s are to return to Burnley FC's Turf Moor in November.
 
The Young Lions will host the 2023 UEFA U21 EURO qualifier against Czech Republic on Thursday 11 November (7pm kick-off).
 
It will be the third occasion Burnley has welcomed the MU21s after previous fixtures against Portugal in 2014 and Latvia in 1995 and they were due to face Turkey at the Lancashire venue in March 2020 before it was postponed.

Last time out at Turf Moor...


Gareth Southgate's Young Lions beat Portugal by 3-1 on their last visit to Burnley back in 2014, featuring strikes from Danny Ings, Bernardo Silva and Carl Jenkinson...

Lee Carsley’s side start their qualifying campaign against Kosovo in Milton Keynes on Tuesday 7 September, before trips to Slovenia and Andorra in October.
 
The Group G schedule will then continue in Burnley, with England’s first meeting with the Czechs at this age group since a 1-0 away victory in 2015.
 
In addition to the MU21s, Turf Moor has a rich history of hosting international fixtures including the MU20s in 2005, a rare men’s B international in 2007 and senior men’s and women’s matches in 1927 and 2003 respectively.
 
Tickets for this next international fixture at the home of the Clarets will go on sale from 12pm on Friday 3 September.
