The Three Lions will kick-off 2022 with an Alzheimer's Society International at Wembley in March
England men's seniors will host Switzerland at Wembley Stadium connected by EE in March 2022. 
 
The fixture will form a key part of Gareth Southgate’s squad’s preparation for this year’s 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. 
 
The match on Saturday 26 March (5.30pm kick-off) will be designated as an ‘Alzheimer’s Society International’ in support of The FA’s official charity partnership.
 
The Three Lions last met the Swiss in Portugal in June 2019, when a penalty shootout victory following a goalless draw, secured a bronze medal at the inaugural UEFA Nations League Finals.
 
In total, the two nations have faced each other on 26 occasions; England with 17 wins to three defeats and six draws. The last of those at Wembley was in September 2015 when Wayne Rooney became the first Englishman to score 50 goals for the national team during a 2-0 UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying victory.
 
The FA announced a two-year charity partnership with Alzheimer’s Society in August 2021 with the dedicated international fixture to help raise funds and awareness for the cause. More details about the ‘Alzheimer’s Society International’ will be communicated ahead of the occasion.
 

The opposition for a further fixture, also to be played at Wembley, on Tuesday 29 March (7.45pm kick-off) will be announced in due course.

England fans will be able to purchase tickets for both games with on-sale details as follows:
